Sony gets Fuji TV tech order

TOKYO — Fuji Television Network Inc. (Fuji TV) said Monday it has placed orders for mobile terrestrial and high-definition broadcasting centers with Sony Corp. for use during the 1998 Winter Olympics at Nagano.

The deal, worth slightly less than 10 billion yen ($8.7 million), is for equipment for two relay and production centers, and also includes 12 cameras: six HDC 700 high-end wide cameras and six HDC-750 high-end portable cameras, a Fuji TV spokesman said.

The mobile stations, which will be linked through optical cables, are capable of program recording, editing and transmission, and Fuji TV said they will be the first mobile stations that can be used for broadcasting conventional television programming along with high-definition TV.
