3 BBC studios now focusing on 1080p

Tonight (Sept 5) is the first edition of popular chat-show host Jonathan Rosss new show on the BBC. For the very first time the show will go out in HDTV from the BBCs recently converted Studio Four, representing a 2m investment by BBC Resources, the BBCs commercial technical subsidiary.

It is the third BBC studio to be upgraded to HD at Television Centre, following the successful conversion of Studio One and Studio Eight. Future investment on HDTV by the BBC will be in 1080p/50Hz.

BBC Studios already works with a wide variety of production companies and broadcasters. With an increasing demand for HD content, both for transmission and archive purposes, the investment will ensure BBC Studios continues to fulfil the requirements of its customers, whose creative and editorial visions are increasingly in HD. It will also help the BBC achieve its HD aspirations, with all production intended to be HD by 2012, says a BBC statement.

BBC Studios has installed a Sony MVS-8000 series vision mixer and eight Sony HDC-1500 cameras. It has also replaced Studio Fours gallery and lighting gallery monitor stacks and laid new HD fibre links to the central control area. Future BBC Studios equipment upgrades will also be to high definition, with an additional focus on 1080p/50.

Danielle Nagler, Head of BBC HD said: BBC HD strives to showcase the best of BBC content and to give audiences a range of the programmes they already love in standard definition. I am delighted that from now on the growing numbers of people able to access BBC HD can watch Friday Night with Jonathan Ross on the channel. Having a third HD studio available at Television Centre I hope will support our ambition to work with both independent and in-house producers to increase the amount of BBC programming we can bring to audiences in HD quality.
