I got the 3 minute video tour of the new KYW studio they showed on the first 11:00 HD news broadcast. MPEG2 full resolution. Unfortunetly I had to resort to megaupload, but it will work just be patient. It's about 400MB.

One of the anchors gives a great tour, showing:
-technical operations center
-HD video discs, from Sony XDCams
-station control room
-main studio A
-A 150'' screen in the main studio! 12' across!
Of course it's described in pretty novice terms, but the HD shots of the control rooms and all the brand new HD capable equipment are worth a look.
Also a nice press release here
, describing the new studio. Of particular interest:
"The network-caliber Newsroom, designed by Janson Design Group in New York, will be the first newsroom in the market to be completely tapeless and high definition both in-studio and in the field
. Built from the ground up in HD, the operation includes all new high definition cameras, editing equipment and a technical operations center. We will be shooting all of our stories in high definition
giving the viewer a more complete sense of literally being there,' says Vice President and News Director Susan Schiller. This is the next generation of electronic news -- the biggest leap in technology since the 1970s when reporters first began reporting live on location from the field.
