Time Square Studio
New studio technology — HD
Converting an existing studio complex to HD is no small task, especially when the revision can't interfere with live daily two-hour network broadcasts originating from the same facility. Such was the challenge for National TeleConsultants' project team during its significant design upgrade of core engineering facilities at Times Square Studios in New York City, where “Good Morning America” (GMA) and other network programming is produced. In order to accommodate daily production of these shows, SDTV program video was switched live in a temporary mobile production trailer parked outside.
The project also included a coordinated HD/SD redesign of ABC's 66th Street master control facility, where GMA's production, news ingest, editing, playout and release control room are located. New equipment included up- and downconversion, frame syncs and HD terminal fiber gear.
