'NBC Nightly News' launches HD telecast

NBC News began offering its "NBC Nightly News" in HD March 26.

The network will also begin offering its NBC News Special Reports, including breaking news and political coverage, in HD.

While the current "Nightly News" studio and set are HD-ready, new studio cameras, updated HD graphics and 5.1 surround sound were added. "Nightly News" broadcasts from NBC News' control room 1A, which was recently redesigned and will continue to broadcast "Today."

The network is offering "Nightly News" in 1080i HD. Field reports will continue to be presented in 4:3 aspect ratio with wings added. According to a statement from the network, NBC News expects to begin using HD gear for field acquisition later in the year. Reporting from the White House lawn, however, was available in widescreen HD March 26.
