BROADCAST NEWS of April 1961

Die ausgewählten Artikel stammen aus der RCA Firmen-Zeitung vom April 1961 - Die Einführung beginnt hier.



Station KHQ-TV started telecasting color back in 1954. It was one of the first stations equipped with two live color studio cameras and a complete 3-Valve color film system.

In 1956 the station built a color equipped mobile TV unit. Just recently there was added two RCA color TV Tape Recorders. Offices are located in the downtown Radio Central Building, while the studio and transmitters are on a 30-acre plot, five miles distant.

  • Anmerkung : Da stellt sich für uns Europäer die erste Frage : Wo liegt Spokane ?

Der Ort liegt etwa 200 km östlich von Seattle und etwa 100 km südlich der kanadischen Grenze - im Staat Washington auf der Westseite der USA

Color Mobile Unit

Probably the most significant piece of equipment, designed and built by station engineers, is the dual mobile unit for remote pick ups. This is built into a one-ton Chevrolet truck with custom-built body and 138-inch wheelbase.

Control and rack equipments are portable. They are removable so that the truck can be used for either black and white or color TV remotes. These same control and switching equipments afe used in the station studio.

In the front are two camera controls for the TK-41 color cameras and a TS-5A switcher. There are two TM-6C master monitors and two TM-10B color monitors. There are facilities for seating a five-man operating team.

Color Programs

Live coverage of the Armed Forces Day Parade and the Lilac Festival have been annual events since 1956. Local color programming includes live portions of a daily newscast. Recently a series of afternoon color movies was inaugurated. Also, KHQ-TV carries the full NBC color schedule.

Station KHQ-TV has a philosophy all its own to tackle the immediate color situation. This consists of concentrating on special events for color-casting and at the same time publicizing these color shows as widely as possible.

This accounts for the emphasis upon the color mobile unit since most of the special events are remote pick ups. Local RCA Distributors, Prudential Distributors, and others have cooperated in these special color telecasts.

Together with the push in color TV receiver promotion and the increase in color programming, KHQ-TV hopes to make Spokane one of the leaders in Color Television in the U.S.A.
