Title: Walt Disney World IntelliSTAR Local Forecast
Post by: WeatherWitness on April 16, 2010, 09:51:42 PM
In traveling to Disney World last week, I could definetely call the place a city or small town, and it looks like The Weather Channel thinks the same way. :D Here is the IntelliSTAR local forecast for Walt Disney World, as recorded in the hotel room at one of the resorts.

**Notes**
-Please excuse the somewhat poor picture quality and shakiness. I recorded this with the video feature on my camera, and since there was no good place to set it down for recording, I held the camera during the entire local forecast.
-Yes, I did change the audio. Originally, there was a very high-pitched sound in the background, and the narration/music could barely be heard.
-The song I used is called "Partners in Crime" featuring Jim Brickman and Dave Koz.


You can watch or download the video by clicking on the attachment link below. I understand that it is a WMV file and not an MP4 as requested by Martin, but when I tried to convert to MP4, the quality was reduced. :blink:

Anyways, hope you enjoy! :)

It doesn't surprise me big installations and private areas have specially designed systems. ie NASA. I wonder how many special ones exist
