As we all know we had some severe weather this past weekend during the NASCAR race. We are required to show severe weather information and the only way to do that at the moment was with a SD 4:3 image. Because the FOX network HD stuff is essentially a MPEG-2 pass through, it looks better and doesn't suffer from conversion artifacts. BUT during severe weather, putting things on the air at the local station is a problem. Fox broadcasting is aware of the need for severe weather information in HD and is working to address the issue. I have seen their prototype system in action and it will be nice to have the best of both worlds.
