  1. Yeah, there have been rumors of standardization for years. I assume when or if they do it will be a completely new package.
  2. Shame I liked him. He was good journalist. But when UP was cancelled they didn’t know what to do with him, gave him an hour on the weekend afternoons. But that didn’t last.
  3. Worth noting it’s been in use the entire time during covid for Early Today and some MSNBC shows.
  4. That is typically the case when it comes to new presidents in general.
  5. He boxes like that were some odd design quirk. They do something similar when it comes to meteorologists names. Why? I do not know.
  6. Let’s see if this works.... https://imgur.com/a/2bqjjmw
  7. Darn. Trust me, the ceiling changes colors. If it was painted blue it wouldn’t be able to.
  8. I believe they hung something similar up, not quite as big for Super Tuesday or 2018.
  9. I expect after Election Day there will be wall to wall coverage because with all the absentee voting going on we will not know the outcome by 11PM Tuesday.
  10. Color changing ceiling.... B905B5F7-AE40-4BFE-BB03-659B4185EC10.MOV B905B5F7-AE40-4BFE-BB03-659B4185EC10.MOV
  11. I have a video of the ceiling of the newsroom changing. The ceilings white but changes color by recessed LEDs.
  12. From two people I’ve heard they’re going to wait until after Elections for MTP.
  13. I imagine MLB would require the World Series and some post season games to be carried on ABC. They don’t want to limit their audience share. It could air on ABC and they could do a Megacast on cable.
  14. Spectrum 1 will never be carried on Comcast as it’s a competitor and it’s designed as a marketing ploy.
  15. That’s a interesting video. I assume they must of recorded a clean feed before it went through master control. NBC has a piece of hardware called NameDropper HD (CBS uses the same hardware but it’s known as LIDIA) that’s used to insert logos during primetime, TOTH legal IDs and the crawl/time/temp during the Today Show. All the commands for Today is triggered by a watermark in the feed which is likely why it was triggered during the clip. However I am slightly confused why it would have the ticker covered by the Look N ticker but the time/temp ontop of the LookN ticker.
  16. Very good write up Samantha. One thing I will say about WGN America’s loss of MVPD May be changing around. Last year when I renegotiated my Comcast package they told me WGN America wouldn’t be available in new packages and will be pulled. Well about two months ago I noticed it reappeared as an available channel. I’m curious if Nexstar were renegotiating or willing to make concessions About carriage feeds so this program and big gamble would have the largest audience. As for a west coast feed I’d think it would be difficult to pull off unless they added more staff. Or they could have someo
  17. What was there temporary setup like? The teaser made it look like it was in its own studio but the construction area showed its the open newsroom.
  18. Yes, ABC and CBS. I saw CBS and they used a KCBS reporter.
  19. It’s been mentioned here and I believe in the chats that Hoda prefers to work in the studio than at home. Well from what I understand Hoda lives in the city so places might be cramped. But also having a person in studio would keep all the camera operators, lighting technicians and other employees around. I am not sure of the contract but I’d imagine if they hosts were all remote they studio crew maybe temporarily put on leave.
  20. He whole high speed internet thing slightly worries me. A good deal of the country has Comcast. Before they reportedly set a cap for 250GB a month and supposedly it’s been raised to 1TB. I don’t think they’ve ever cut off a user because of it but I’ve heard of throttling from them and other providers. So if an anchor has a camera that’s live an is splitting the load via LiveU with two or three cell modems and wired internet and the internet starts throttling quality breaks up. Another instance I heard was via Fios a few years back. A man setup a decent sized cloud for himself and fa
  21. It also worth mentioning that the studio that Norah uses and Face the Nation uses manual pedestal cameras. It would be one thing if they had say a manual pedestal but a PTZ/Height Drive head where several lock off shots could be used. The show is produced out at All Mobile Video in NYC across from the CBS Broadcast Center. Dealing with one locked off camera is easier that can be PTZ is easier (and worth noting that’s what Jose Diaz-Balart has done since COVID-19, this week said it was in NYC but before all came from Telemundo Center). I mentioned this in the chat that perhaps rena
  22. Here’s a side by side video :
  23. I imagine work has been delayed and perhaps they are rethinking the streetside studio idea. With the frequent protests turning violent I could see them either replacing what they have with a stronger type of glass * or additional security measures such as more fencing around the studio or additional layers of glass. * Perhaps hurricane proof - I’ve seen residential glass get battered by tree limbs and other projectiles at 70+ MPH without issue. I don’t think any person could generate enough force that strong. But I’d also keep bullet proof as well. It wouldn’t surprise
  24. Wow thank you, I’ll take a look at the deleted helicopters. Is this a new helicopter or second for WSB? I’ve seen N2QU recently.
