NBC 5 Announces Addition of Cutting Edge Augmented Reality Mapping Technology: Ranger Vision

You won't find this anywhere else in Texas

Texas Sky Ranger just got an upgrade — a first for any television news station in Texas.

Ranger Vision is capable of overlaying geographical elements onto live video from Texas Sky Ranger, including street names, buildings names and other points of interest.

NBC 5 is the first Texas broadcast television station to use this state-of-the-art technology only recently developed and available for use by law enforcement, search & rescue, emergency management services, military agencies and homeland security.

David Finfrock is passing the chief meteorologist title to Rick Mitchell, but Finfrock's name will adorn the license plate of our newest NBC 5 storm fleet vehicle, the Texas Lightning Truck.

With proven accuracy, reliability and usefulness, Ranger Vision will enhance viewer experience when Texas Sky Ranger is out tracking traffic patterns, police pursuits, weather coverage, fire and explosion events, and more.

Next time you want to watch NBC 5 News traffic, weather coverage or breaking news you can expect an experience that opens a world of familiarity and understanding the surroundings.
