‘Ellen’ Going HD in Fall in New Digital Complex
The successful syndicated “Ellen DeGeneres Show” from Warner Bros. plans to slide into HD mode (1080i) in the autumn when the daily program moves to new studios in Burbank, Calif., from its NBC Universal Burbank facilities.

The new complex will house a 32,000 square-foot studio with a state of the art digital tapeless HD production facility that will serve three stages. The first HD broadcast is set for Monday, Sept. 8, which is also the premiere of the comedienne’s sixth season.

The new control room will be connected via fiber optic cable to other stages on the Warner lot and used for live specials and other programming, when the Ellen show is on hiatus.
