@  CLTNewsWatch : (23 November 2014 - 01:03 PM) WUSA had a special at 11:30am and WJLA had an hour long special on NewsChannel8 at 12
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 02:58 AM) Now I realize WJLA or WUSA likely won't have any crew in the building but WRC and WTTG probably have a few producers in.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 02:53 AM) DC's former Mayor Marion Barry died this morning. The stations sent out tweets but their websites aren't updated. The earliest scheduled newscast is 6AM with WRC and 7AM at WTTG. No newscasts scheduled for WTTG or WUSA. Find it hard to believe that WBAL can do 5AM newscasts 7days a week but stations in the nation can't or won't?
@  Raymie : (23 November 2014 - 02:21 AM) Tomorrow another concept identity will drop. With a difference: no more imgur, everything on Behance.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) http://www.telemundo...-263869271.html
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 02:06 AM) Holy crap the new KNBC/KVEA facility in Universal City cost $150 million.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:46 AM) In other news I finally saw a full picture of Telemundo LA few month old studio - looks good. Granite their close shot of home base doesn't look that different as they still have a (guessing here) 6x4 monitor array.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:45 AM) But there are current track based robotic cameras that are extremely fast. Many of them are used in the Olympics.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:39 AM) Okay, Vinten Radamec (the Mercedes of robotics) can pan 60° per second, which would be slow for a football game.
@  NateinFLA : (23 November 2014 - 01:38 AM) Again, that is the current technology, and I'm not sure which brand you're talking about, as I am sure they all are built differently. Plus, a majority of Football is shot on a wide shot, showing all the action. A "current" robotic head could easily move as fast as action with the current camera framing standard.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:36 AM) I personally believe that this would be a decade away atleast.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:35 AM) I'm looking at the speed of robotic heads when it comes to panning and they move at 60°/sec^2
@  NateinFLA : (23 November 2014 - 01:34 AM) You said "current lineup of motorized/robotic cameras", whereas I was talking about the non-too-distant-future. We have come so far with television automation technology, it is naive to think that there isn't already some development of software to aid a single human operator in tracking sports action.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:32 AM) Where for baseball I read that Dodger stadium uses Sony PTZ cameras.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:30 AM) @NateinFLA I don't think sports photography will ever be automated. The current lineup of motorized/robotic cameras do not pan that quickly for a sport football (either kind) or hockey. A main drawback to that idea would be the operator would only be looking at a small frame and may miss where to pan to where a photographer has the full picture.
@  rkolsen : (23 November 2014 - 01:27 AM) @Viper550 I applaud FOX safety consciousness. It shows they are (or their crew) creates a safety culture.
@  NateinFLA : (23 November 2014 - 01:18 AM) ...and just a few years from now, 1 person will be running all 12 cameras from the safety of the Production Truck.
@  Viper550 : (23 November 2014 - 12:05 AM) So apparently, Fox switched to unmanned stationary cameras in the middle of its primetime college football game because of lightning
@  Weeters : (22 November 2014 - 10:17 PM) The thread was closed because it started out talking about KTVU becoming a FOX O&O and ended up primarily talking about WFXT long after the deal closed. Anchor changes at WFXT really don't belong in a thread talking about a station on the other side of the country getting a new owner.
@  Viper550 : (22 November 2014 - 02:28 PM) Thenagain, they said they wouldn't do regular season OUA football games this year. And the new one's just a reskin of the same basic layout
