The Green Wall is used for chroma-keying in the weather maps. On television, you see all these maps and animations (which are quicktime files, btw) but in the studio all you see is a big green wall. Computers do the rest. The weather person must look off to the side at a TV monitor to see what she’s pointing at.
This ‘meteorologist’ has had a problem with being perky lately. She knows her predictions are crap and it comes from computer models that are about as accurate as rolling the dice. Yet day after day she pretends to know something …until she can’t take it anymore.
