From the Mailbag: I-Alert Distorting Pictures

From: nwitcraft via email

Q: Why is the picture on WKYC-HD stretched when the iAlert school closing graphic is on the screen? The picture above the school closings looked distorted. The picture would look better if it was 4:3 with the sidebars like normal. Everything else is great, I like the new news graphics.

A: We believe this problem has been fixed now. The graphics were too big for the screen, which caused us to squish the picture too much, thus giving you a distorted image. Part of the problem is our Master Control is not HD yet, so we are doing this as a bypass through the HD Control Room direct to air.
