Times Square Studios goes HD

Times Square Studios is using an array of Sony HD production equipment for ABC's “Good Morning America”, which went on the air for the first time in high definition earlier this month. Other network news and sports productions will also use the equipment.

Two Sony MVS-8000A switchers and HDS-X5800 routers, nine HDC-1500 cameras, and LUMA LCD monitors allowed the network morning show to begin live HD origination.

Sony's multi-format HD switchers with MVE-8000A digital video effects, studio cameras and routers will operate in 720p mode. Six of the cameras use large lens and viewfinder adaptors in a studio configuration. Three serve as field rovers.

The routers' software control system, HKSP-R80, makes changing setups from PCs easier. Sony's BZR-2000 software provides the system's interface running on the PCs to establish the router setups. The Times Square Studios' existing SD configuration includes Sony's DVS-7000 and DVS-9000 switchers, routers and BVP-900 cameras, all of which will be replaced by HD models.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
