I guess MBC is supplying some stuffs to them, but to be fair, Arirang is operated under the South Korean government's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism through Korea International Broadcasting Foundation.

IIRC, MBC does provide (or previously did) some technical support, the two organizations are not the same nor under the same ownership.

Corrected. Thank you guys for pointing that out.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.


Could be said with a lot of things.
Edit : Here it atleast serves a decent purpose. I don’t bash the BBC often but I think the News Reviews AR graphics are kitschy. If they just had the paper floating in the background it’s one thing but the covers in front of the desk is a bit much.

Edit 2 : There’s a couple of ABC owned stations here that have a virtual dog just sitting there during their AR weather forecasts. That’s just a gimmick.

It's a bit gimmicky, but no doubt the same could have been said decades ago when weather presenters started sticking magnetic symbols on a map.

I don't think the use of AR in this context is fundamentally different from a weather presenter pointing at things on a green screen (which aren't really there). The same information is being communicated. It's just an evolution of the presentation format.

Well if AG is used correctly it is brilliant. The Weather Channel in Atlanta has been using for a few years now in their various studios. And I think its a great way of explaing complex weather, than just the vague weather by certain broadcasters (ie "its going to be blustery windy weather with showery rains"....gonna to need to know more that!)
Tornado

Storm Surge
