A TVnewsday article today details WPLG’s DTV transition plans (reg. required) and move to a new studio.
The interesting bits are that Channel 10 bought Ikegami SD/HD cameras and those are going to be one of the few things that will be moved to the new studios. But it looks like there will be no Local10 News in HD until the move and live reports will be in SD for some time due to the costs associated with upgrading live news trucks.
WPLG and WSVN will have their digital transmitters on the same tower, a new one, both stations will be putting up soon.
WPLG GM Dave Boylan expects the new building to be done by December of this year. Equipment will be installed during the first three months of 2009 and the first staff will be in the new building sometime in April 2009. All staff will work from the new location by June 30, 2009.
