I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Watching the 6 o'clock news tonight, I was again annoyed by the picture being out of sync with the sound. The faces lips moved a fully a quarter second before the accompanying sound was broadcast.
Technology is wonderful when applied properly. But, why cannot the broadcast engineers make the sound come out at the same time the lips move?
High definition TV is beautiful. The audio going along with it stinks. And, it's not only WTMJ. Each of the others have the same problems now and then but it gets my ire most on channel 4. (Perhaps that's because I watch their local stuff more than the others.)
Futher annoyance is when people's mouths move earlier than the rest of their faces (cheeks, eyebrows). They call it artifacts.
I'm beginning to respect analog broadcasting for it's high quality.
