Greg Ardrey at KTSP-TV, 1990-1993

  1. 1. <ul><li>&quot;Dave's Weather Van&quot; was actually just a typical remote van. They just wanted to promote Dave Munsey's weather cast. He is still at KSAZ last time I checked. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Here is the van mast up and ready for a live remote. The dish is pointed to a recieve dish on South Mountain in Phoenix and the signal is relayed back to the studio </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The van has cabinets for storing cables and equipment, two equipment racks, a generator, 2-way radio, and a small air compressor used to raise the mast. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>At the top of the left rack is the power distribution and generator controls. Below that is the control for the microwave dish (that brown box), a black and white TV for monitoring the on-air program, and a small mixer for feeding the TV audio and 2-way radio sound to the IFB earphones. Under the panels you see a BetaCam video tape player used to feed footage shot by the photographer at the scene back to the station. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>At the top of the right hand rack is a color monitor used with the switcher to monitor what you are feeding the station. Below that is a black and white monitor, a vectorscope (like an oscilloscope, but specifically made for video signals - color bars produce a stair step pattern). Below them are a video switcher and mic mixer. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Here Dave Munsey is giving his weather live from the Park of Roses. He has someone from the park for an interview </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The reporter or weather person has an air monitor on the tripod so they can see what is on-air. They also have a wireless earphone called an IFB or Comrex. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The news vans in the garage. When in the garage they are plugged into shore power to keep the batteries for the generator and power inverter charged </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>&quot;Live Control&quot; is where the signal from the vans, helicopter, and satellite truck are tuned in on the receivers. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>In the control room, the director runs the newscast and selects which cameras or live feeds to use. The actual newscast is fed to master control which treats it like any other program and runs the commercial breaks (see the WCMH photos). </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Here is the KTSP Newsroom as seen from the news set. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Looking the other way from the news room you see the back of the news desk and the cameras. On-air, the viewers saw the anchors with the newsroom in the background like some networks do now. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The engineering shop where equipment was repaired. </li></ul>
