Citytv Toronto to broadcast news in HD

CHUM Television's flagship station Citytv Toronto will broadcast its news programming in high definition using the Ross Video Synergy 4 MD-X digital production switcher beginning in September.

Citytv Toronto is positioned to become the first daily newscast in Canada to broadcast in HD. Installation of the OverDrive production control system and Synergy 4 MD-X digital production switcher is targeted for completion by summer. As part of several CHUM HD initiatives, "BT-"Breakfast Television", "Cityline", "CityNews at Noon", "CityNews at Six" and "CityNews Tonight" will all broadcast in HD.

CHUM Television has invested in several Synergy digital production switchers including: A-Channel Barrie, A-Channel Ottawa, A-Channel London and Citytv Toronto. Both A-Channel Barrie and now Citytv Toronto have invested in the OverDrive Production Control System.
