CNN HD topic

I was watching Lou Dobbs last night and of course the NY studios b'cast in HD. BUT... Lou was talking to a pundit who was in the Washington studio via satellite and he was in HD. Does that mean that the Washington studio is ready to go?? Also, I searched before posting and couldn't find any info on when WSH/ATL/LA will be converted?

Be nice when ATL gets done..Betty Nguyen is hot!

This is nothing new, single camera shots of people from Washington DC have been HD for a while now. Shows that originate from DC are not in HD yet.

They should use the 1 camera to shoot the Situation Room..IMO

At this rate The Weather Channel will be done before CNN.

I understand the tornado damage to CNN Center in Atlanta will most likely delayed the transition a bit, but let's get Washington done already.

Sending one camera down the line to be integrated into a show shot elsewhere, is totally different then producing a whole show from one site.

CNN HD is finally on Dishnetwork; but do they have any shows actually in HD?

I guess, from reading this thread that shows that originate from NY are in HD, but could someone who has had the channel for a while let us know what shows are in HD and when they air. The guide is not working on E* yet. Thanks. BTW, are they airing the debate tonight and if so is it in HD?

American Morning, Lou Dobbs Tonight, CNN Election Center, and Anderson Cooper 360 are in HD, as they all originate from NY. Specials, documentaries, and debates have all been HD lately.

The Situation Room originates from DC. Larry King Live usually originates from LA (though there are duplicate sets in NY and DC). CNN Newsroom originates from Atlanta. When The Situation Room originates from the election set in NY, it's in HD. Larry King has never been in HD despite it's NY-based set, to my knowledge.

ABC is airing the debate tonight. Today they announced that all of their news programming (World News Tonight, Nightline, and their newsmagazines will all go HD the week of Sept. 8, and their convention and general election debates coverage will also be in HD). I doubt tonight's debate will be HD. CBS has the NC debate on April 27.

Okay, it's now 8pm EDT and the programming is nominally HD.

It's just like NBC Nightly News - guy in studio facing HD camera, everything else in the program is SD with various curtain graphics around them. Even the channel IDs are SD.

Clearly you can get Pro HD cameras for field work, so it must be the satellite back feeds that are still not available in HD...

i noticed that CNN showed up in HD last night on Dish Network also. who is really going to watch the news in HD? and larry king was on and it had bars on the sides. senseless. now only if Dish would do what they promise. Supposedly Dish is launching a new satellite in June with which they are "supposed" to be adding a few more HD channels namely USA and Sci-Fi. That would make me happy.

I have seen Larry King in HD when he's been in NY.

USA-HD and SciFi-HD are currently broadcasting from Dish's 110 satellite, so they don't need to launch anything to make it available.

It is not available to any Dish customer, because either Dish has not come to agreement with NBC-Universal, or because the agreement requires them to add other channels (e.g. Bravo-HD) at the same time, so they are waiting for that.

Have you guys noticed that occasionally Larry King will be in HD when he's checking in with Campbell Brown (or whoever they happen to have on before him) previewing the upcoming show then, when the show comes on it's still sd?

USA,SciFi, and CNN - HD are indeed available to Dish customers. (as of last Wednesday/Thursday)

It took a few weeks, but I've recovered fully.

Any update on the ATL, DC, LA studios? It seems like now would be the time, given the election boost that's sure to come in September, October, and November.

Also, I'm assuming everything from Denver will be HD? CNN obviously is doing a lot more coverage than the one-hour-per-night network news coverage.
post #26 of 326
Yes, per Swanni, everything on CNN out of Denver will be in HD:

"Washington, D.C. (August 22, 2008) -- CNN will broadcast next week's entire Democratic Party convention from Denver in High-Definition."

I'm interested in the answer to this question.

This just happened. Then they went to Blitzer in Washington/Situation Room, and he was in widescreen. Honestly couldn't tell if it was HD or not.

And yet, then they go to Bush in SD rather than widescreen (which is what it looked like on the other networks).

It seems like CNN is deploying more HD cameras in the field at major spots. They've got an HD camera inside the Capitol, an HD camera overlooking the Capitol, and there was an HD camera for Tony Blankley at the end of Campbell Brown tonight, wherever he was.

I've also noticed that CNN Newsroom has shifted away from the anchor desk and is operating similarly to The Situation Room and Election Center with the camera moving all around.

As I resurrect this thread, I have been searching the CNN website to email them about when the Atlanta studio(at least) will go HD. Has any of the insiders on this board heard ANYTHING on this?

Again: Betty Nguyen is a HOT!!
