KTLA-TV launches HD news chopper

KTLA-TV in Los Angeles became the latest station in the country to provide airborne HD news coverage last week when it launched an HD-equipped helicopter to cover the nation's second largest TV market.

The Helinet Group is providing the HD news chopper, which uses the Cineflex V14 gimbal, gyro-stabilized camera system, Helinet's turnkey solution that allows the KTLA HD helicopter to broadcast live, HD images from high above the city. The Cineflex V14 allows KTLA to bring viewers closer to the news than ever before.

The multiyear deal for the HD helicopter is the latest chapter in a 20-year partnership between Helinet and the station.

With the new Cineflex camera system, KTLA-TV joins a handful of broadcasters equipped for HD ENG operations. Currently, Helinet provides more than 30 stations with ENG helicopter services in cities that include New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
