KABB Fox San Antonio Broadcasts with Blackmagic Design

PostFri Sep 18, 2020 1:24 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that KABB Fox San Antonio Chief Meteorologist Alex Garcia is using a number of Blackmagic Design products, including an ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K live production switcher, to remotely broadcast and live stream weather segments for the nightly “Fox News at Nine” news program. As news stations continue to adjust to broadcasting’s new normal, the “Fox News at Nine” weather team has successfully pivoted to a workflow connecting its chief meteorologist from home to keep the program on air every night, delivering local news to its viewers at the high quality viewers expect.

KABB Fox San Antonio is a local television station covering news for the greater San Antonio, TX area. Garcia hosts three weather segments nightly for “Fox News at Nine,” covering the local temperature, rain and pollen and the ozone forecasts. In addition to his role at KABB Fox San Antonio, Garcia hosts Hurricane Center LIVE, an online weekly series that aims to help meteorologists and emergency teams prepare for hurricane season, which is also powered by a Blackmagic Design workflow.

Pivoting to meet the demands of social distancing and the new normal, Garcia quickly adjusted his “Fox News at Nine” workflow to begin broadcasting from home, relying on an ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K, ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel, Blackmagic Web Presenter and Micro Converters HDMI to SDI for his setup that also includes a green screen, several computers, microphones and three cameras.
