Fox News Channel in late Summer 2001

This is a complete airing of The O’Reilly Factor in summer of 2001. According to industry scribes, FNC had adopted Vizrt for their animation of their IDs in 2001, and at some point Fox had used Pinnacle (later Avid’s) Deko “Computer Graphics” generator. They were using Quantel’s Paintbox for full screens and ID animations but at some point that ol mini was taken to the curb. But in the Talking Points memo, you can see that infamous “INFINIT! effect”, the default blind effect. I thought for a while the iNFiNiT! was used but thought they went to Deko by this point, maybe for some productions and master control (where the cube bug and later crawl space on September 11th.)

The side shoulder graphics were tacky for it’s time. A bit dated on the font, and it was bulky a/f!
