There have been rapid changes in news gathering technology during my television time. When i started, we shot on video tape, then discs, and now cards.
Today's entry deals with terminology.
People outside the biz still say "film."
I still catch myself saying "tape." "Record" is now the preferred word. We no longer film or tape anything.
Graphics is something entirely different.
When I started at WNEP, is was called Chyron. Then it was Viz, and then Flight. Now, it's back to Chyron. Even though we haven't used Viz in years, I still say it quite a bit.
Learning a new system is more than training and pushing the right keys. It's calling it the proper thing.
