Yes I had seen the ones with menus coming up but it’s much better now.

Honestly it’s a brilliant invention.


Very. I wonder if it’s possible for a station to customize certain elements such as the fonts or even the style of the lines (to match their in house traffic maps).
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

There just happened to be a chase as I posted the previous post. Here’s an example of it in action:

*

Although they don’t have the map overlay on you can see the speed of the vehicle, where the helicopters at (intersection of Norwalk BLVD and 212nd Street), the city and county it’s in. One neat thing that I never noticed was on the bottom right hand corner. You can see which way the helicopters heading, the orange line points shows the direction the gimbals pointing showing the how wide the zoom is.

Yeah I was watching this chase today well. This guy couldnt keep it on the correct side of the street. Thankfully no one was hurt or injured.

KABC and now KGO has it. Both ABC O&O's so i would imagine that Disney is gonna roll this out to Chicago and other stations in short order. As was mentioned KWTV 9 Oklahoma City was the first broadcaster to use the tech. Perfect for their helicopter tornado chasing. Especially when they are calling out streets that the tornado is heading towards. IMO one of the most amazing viewer innovations thats actually useful.

The coverage of the Southern California Wildfires by the LA stations has been amazing Especially KABC. Typically the LA stations have a glossy tabloid-esque edge. But when they cover long form rolling coverage, they really shine. The mix of chopper shots and ground crews fanned out in the affected areas has been stellar. But you can also see how tiring these can be for the stations that have been covering these fires for days. Watch KABC 7 Live here while it lasts.
