@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 11:43 PM) I wonder if BBC's selling a 49.9% to AMC who will market and manage BBC America and BBCWorld News will mean BBC World News will launch here in HD.
@  Matthew Will... : (23 October 2014 - 10:31 PM) The Thursday Night Football theme is a new piece by Helmut VonLichten, half of ES Posthumus. (His brother, who has passed away, was the other half.)
@  Viper550 : (23 October 2014 - 10:14 PM) I think I may or may not have speculated that it was an ES Posthumous remix of the old TNF theme
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 09:40 PM) @cbs2newengland I'm pretty sure that package was launched in late 1998 or 1999.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 09:30 PM) FYI: I found on YouTube, the theme for CBS/NFLN's TNF, and it appears its to be ES Posthumous. It was mentioned a month ago in this same venue, but I don't think it was confirmed.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 09:19 PM) that video was a mixed with the 1996 stinger with the 2000 graphics package...interesting to say the least.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 09:18 PM) This clip from 2000 is from WCVB and it was the same year Hearst launched a new graphics package, more uniform. I think Avid's own site had one of their stations as a screengrab from that same era.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 09:15 PM) I thought the 2000 mandated graphics were used for Deko systems, and most Hearst stations used those graphics around that time.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 09:13 PM) I cannot speak for all but when WBAL launched HD they got a Viz System. I would imagine the spell checks would be standard. I was just reading something it appeared in 2004 they rolled out Deko's group wide but WBAL and KMBC that I know of use Viz.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 08:56 PM) @rkolsen, I've considered WMUR as the ugly red headed step child of the cluster. I don't fully know about ENPS, but does the thing have a spell checks? They also have had grammar issues too, which I know isn't a default feature on an ENPS/CG system. I'm betting the full screen was a copy/paste from an email, and the producer didn't have time to correct the capitalization. And I'm assuming their producers are doing 3 roles under one person too. So Hearst is using Viz now? I thought many like WCVB/WMUR used Avid's Deko.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 08:54 PM) I have a question how many duopolies are not collocated with each other or are in the process of relocating? The only one I can think of is WNBC/WNJU which makes me sometimes think that they are not a traditional duopoly rather than news partners - if you get what Im saying.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 08:37 PM) A while back I was trying to remember what the NBC News Special Report/CBS News Special ticker looked like. They ran a scrolll tonight during Biggest Loser. Trying to get grabs now.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 08:24 PM) Most likely the user entered it in wrong.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 08:23 PM) From what I've read it Hearst is strongly against news automation, based on past interviews their technology officer/head engineer has given. The last one I read was in 2012. Most Hearst graphics go through HATMOS which is an end user interface between ENPS and the Viz Engine for the graphics, where the person writing the script can open a dialog in ENPS that let's them choose templates or if even more is need to their HTV Central design in Orlando. I'd like to think that WMUR is tied into HATMOS since their graphics are slightly modified. But WMUR has always been the WJZ of Hearst.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 October 2014 - 07:17 PM) Hearst Question: Have they jumped on the Ignite (or =) bandwagon? WMUR has had many typos in full screens, one tonight on a story about a special needs facility in court, where the facility was in entirely in lower case. Another night a couple weeks ago they totally misspelled a word, again another full screen. Not sure if they automate just the Deko stuff or they are moving to more automation or what. But its embarrassing in the boonies of DMA 7.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 03:18 AM) Never mind for some reason I thought Ft Myers was a bigger city, it's DMA is 62. Which according the Emmys board says that markets 1-50 are Large, 50-100 are medium and 100-210 are small.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 03:15 AM) I'm still amazed that the larger cable companies / stations don't use fiber to get the signal to the headend rather than off air. I would link Ft. Myers would be a big enough DMA to afford such luxuries.
@  rkolsen : (23 October 2014 - 03:13 AM) I wonder how many stations still have an engineer onsite at their transmitter shack nowadays with all the technological advances and reliability? I assume most stations aren't lucky enough to have their transmitter onsite and if it's off site I'm sure they'd want the engineer /tech at the studio to make sure things work there.
@  Weeters : (23 October 2014 - 02:28 AM) And as usual, low IQ Facebook users stumble into the comments section to spew utter nonsense.
@  Mrtraveler01 : (22 October 2014 - 10:14 PM) Bad time for the transmitter at WFTX in Ft. Myers to go out: http://www.jrn.com/f...-280129462.html
