Technical: Fusion is a news, pop culture and satire TV/digital network that aims to engage and champion a young, diverse and inclusive America with original reporting, lifestyle and comedic content. Fusion is a joint venture between Univision Communications Inc. and the Disney/ABC Television Network. Fusion launched nationwide Oct. 28, 2013.
In the months leading up to the launch, Astucemedia dedicated a six-member technical team, including contracting Southwest Digital, to solve such mission critical challenges as integrating a Vizrt graphics system automated by Ross OverDrive system, providing operational support, and laying a foundation that can facilitate future growth and expansion.
Astucemedia’s creative and technical services focused on delivering live graphics for five Fusion shows, including The Morning Show, America with Jorge Ramos, Open Source, D.N.A. and AM Tonight. Fusion’s news division shares some news gathering resources and program segments with Noticias Univision and ABC News.
