SONY UNVEILS HDTV LINE

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Sony Corp. on Wednesday unveiled a full line of broadcast equipment for studio and field production of high-definition video programming, in a bid to accelerate the TV industry’s conversion to digital production.

Sony officials said the products will be the first such professional-quality equipment introduced in the United States since the U.S. government settled on an industrywide standard for digital broadcasts late last year.

The products included high-definition cameras for use in studios, portable cameras for mobile news crews, and a line of high-definition studio monitors and associated storage and networking equipment used in video editing and distribution.

The transition to HDTV is often compared to the switch made to color from black-and-white decades ago.

Sony’s equipment will be on display at the National Assn. of Broadcasters tradeshow, which begins in Las Vegas on April 7.
