Vancouver is a city that has been a home to many of the greatest people and events of our time. One of these events is the Olympic Games, and as we look back on the history of the games, we can say that they’ve brought the city to the world’s attention and helped it to grow into a major international city. The Vancouver News Global has been a big part of that history, and the team that puts together the news coverage has done a great job of keeping the people of the city informed about what’s happening.

CHAN-DT’s on-air news style
The CHAN-DT station has produced the highest quality local newscast of any television station in the province. A large part of the station’s budget is devoted to the news department. Its news-making machine is a Betacam SP analogue videotape. In the past two years, CHAN has debuted several new and improved features, including a state-of-the-art virtual set and a newsroom that is on the verge of going digital.
Although CHAN’s on-air news style was not exactly revolutionary in its day, it is still considered to be one of the best in the business. It is also the only major Canadian broadcaster to offer a news-related app on its mobile site.
Live-to-tape broadcasts from Vancouver
Global BC, a Canadian station located in Vancouver, will debut a virtual HD set today. It is part of a new broadcasting division headed by former Shaw-controlled Corus Entertainment executive Paul Robertson.
Global BC’s noon newscast is aired seven days a week. The program runs for the same length as non-Big Three U.S. stations.
One version of the news program is hosted by CKNW radio commentator Bill Good. Another version is anchored by Tony Parsons, who previously anchored CHAN’s nightly news program, the News Hour.
CHAN-DT is the top-rated station in its market. Among Global’s television stations, it has the largest local newscast output. Averaging more than 47 and a half hours of local programming each week, the station broadcasts more than any other station in the province.
Betacam SP analogue videotape
The Betacam SP cassette was developed in 1986 to overcome some of the limitations of the Betacam cassette format. It used metal-formulation tape to achieve better image quality. In addition to improving horizontal resolution, the tape also added four analog audio channels.
A Betacam SP cassette can record up to 90 minutes of video in PAL. This makes it one of the longer formats in this format. However, it does have slightly lower video speed.
When compared to other formats, the Betacam SP offers superior picture quality Because the tape uses a metal-formulation, it offers better durability.
CHAN’s current schedule
CHAN is a Vancouver television station whose programming is locally sourced. The station has over 100 transmitters across the province. Its studios are located in Burnaby, BC, where it also has a national news headquarters. In fact, it is the last of three major Canadian broadcast networks to operate in the city. CHAN’s signal is transmitted from Mount Seymore in North Vancouver.
CHAN’s on-air news department produced several notable newscasts. Among them was the News Hour, which aired on a rotating basis. A variant of the program was anchored by CKNW’s Bill Good.
One of the more impressive accomplishments of the station was its ability to produce high definition newscasts. On September 20, 2010, CHAN began broadcasting its local newscasts in high definition.
