I had some business at the Studio today, so I decided to take a short walk through the park to check out some stuff.
I hopped onto the Tram and I was pleased to see some new overhead monitors (I'd say about 20"). There are two across the front of each Tram and another one down the center about half way back. They are larger than the previous ones and you can now easily view them in the daylight.
Our Tram guide announced the upgrade and said that they were new Hi-Def units. What a difference!
New graphics as well. Instead of the old full-screen pictures, the new version shows a smaller shot of the guide plus other graphics on the rest of the screen. The weather "forecast" shot is more like a real one now thanks to some new graphics. When they tell you about all of the TV shows that were done by USH, they also show some nice additional pictures and graphics to go along with the show's names. Classy!
Unfortunately, Whoopi is still on it. What's worse, is now she is in Hi-Def!!!
Oh well, you can't have everything!
They changed the name of Sparticus Square to Warrior Square (I think I heard Square).
I saw the Peugeot cars from Columbo in the storage yard. Sad to think that they won't be making his finale (80th) episode for the show. He was recently diagnosed with alzheimer's. Poor guy.
The construction crew is moving right along with the new lower-lot sets that were destroyed in the recent fire. They look good enough to live in!
Hot day with light crowds.
Whether it is for work or play, I always enjoy USH!
