Playing Hide the Helmet

Oops. It appears KETV has been playing a little chroma-key background trick on viewers to inflate the look of its "Newsplex." Evidence? Click here for the screwup that let the cat out of the bag.

Apparently she has been hanging out with Bela Lugosi of "Phantom Creeps" fame too much lately.

Actually, this was a one time thing when they were working on the floors in the newsplex. They did the news on the green screen set where they do traffic and Big Red Zone.

I checked on this, Ted. The newsplex is actually real. That particular weekend, KETV had closed down their main studio to retile the floor, so they had to broadcast the news from their old studio--the one with the traffic chromakey wall and the interview set. That meant doing the news in chromakey for two days, with a recorded image of the newsplex as background.
