Quite cool, actually, and it's resulted in one nicely lit green screen! Interesting waterproof camera and monitor setup, too. The sync on the handheld camera isn't great though (and a tiny bit of break-up as well).
If I recall it was a blue screen and was a small framed area. Looks like the camera setup changed. That looks like a cart before I think it was a permanent camera akin to beauty cameras. Unless they still have that for other shots. TEGNA sure does love their wireless DJI Ronin 2 Pro Combo DSLRs.
Edit : Looks like it’s been a green screen. Maybe I’m thinking of KUSA.
Yup it’s KUSA with a blue screen and a permanent camera.
I saw some of the coverage from KBMT, the ABC/NBC affiliate in Beaumont, Texas, in the same sort of area. Obviously a very small station that did very well to mount round-the-clock live coverage.
As Laura made landfall a fair bit outside of the Houston stations' broadcast areas, different Houston stations took different approaches. KHOU, the CBS affiliate, just did occasional weather updates overnight - but KPRC, the NBC affiliate, was live all night...
New Orleans and Baton Rouge stations also did extensive coverage. Tegna station group provided some of their reporters from outside the market as pool reporters for the local stations in the affected area. to bump their live coverage and then to provide coverage back to their home stations. They sent an extra reporter from San Antonio.
Those are pretty dramatic pictures - could've been deadly if they'd not evacuated before it made landfall. Looks like it'll be a while before they're back up broadcasting from the Lake Charles studio as it will require a completely new roof and tower... and that's before you even look at technical equipment, sets, etc.
Wow. This is the studio of our sister station in Lake Charles, @KPLC7News. This is where they delivered news every day. And where they would have likely been during #Laura. Thank God they evacuated. They continue to be as their motto says: At Your Service. https://t.co/m1cX7YnWTu pic.twitter.com/MAjNal7sn0— Cody Lillich (@CodyLillich) August 28, 2020
