KING 5 TV and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center recently held “Call for a Breakthrough” Telethon. The telethon was promoted through pre-recorded breaks inserted into KING 5’s regular programming. They wanted these breaks to be live, but because of technical parameters that wasn’t possible. Instead, the segments were shot with one camera, and the tape was logged, captured and edited, rolled back on to tape and brought to Master Control where they ingested it into their broadcast system.
My job? To log, capture, edit and transfer back to tape and bring to master control.
