Survivors ready ... for HD?

Quote
The eight-year-old reality competition series is finally getting upgraded to high definition. Next fall's 17th outing will be the first time the show's exotic locations, elaborate challenges and gruesome bug bites will be available in the widescreen HD format.

CBS announced the production upgrade at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas on Sunday.

My hubby and I were talking about Survivor not being in HD at the beginning of this season because we are so spoiled with  HD.  And that is was way to expensive with every camera having to be in HD, but i guess not too expensive.  That will be so nice to see everything in HD although the bug bites on the legs, etc might be to clear and close up  :eww  And not to mention the disgusting dirt everywhere on their bodies, on second thought only the scenery would be nice and that's about it.   :lol:

CBS TO PRESENT "SURVIVOR" IN HIGH DEFINITION FOR THE FIRST TIME UTILIZING SONY'S XDCAM HD TECHNOLOGY
XDCAM HD Camcorders and Decks Play to Win on the Upcoming 17th Edition of CBS's Ground-Breaking Reality Series

 

         Sony and CBS have joined forces to bring the ground-breaking reality series SURVIVOR to high definition. Sony XDCAM HDTM Professional DiscTM system will be used to shoot the upcoming 17th edition of CBS's SURVIVOR in high definition, with production scheduled to begin this summer and the premiere episode debuting in the fall.

 

            "Sony's XDCAM HD system will start a new era for SURVIVOR," said Mark Burnett, executive producer of SURVIVOR. "The camcorder brings the exotic locales to life brilliantly, creating an immediacy that draws viewers right into the frame. This is something we'd been looking to do for some time, and now it has become a reality."

 

            The XDCAM HD camcorders and decks to be deployed are a direct replacement for Sony Digital Betacam equipment used to craft the series' groundbreaking style since its premiere. The Sony XDCAM HD solution is immediately familiar to camera operators and line producers, but offers far more than an upgrade from SD to HD resolution. The optical-disc-based HD workflow introduces new innovation and efficiency that addresses the unique needs of reality TV's unscripted programming.

 

            "Shooting in high definition gives our production team tools for storytelling beyond what was previously possible and will give our loyal audience an enhanced viewing experience," said Ghen Maynard, executive vice president, Alternative Programming & Entertainment Content for New Media, CBS Paramount Entertainment Group.  "SURVIVOR's locations and natural elements have always served as another character in the show and an important part of the competition.  With HD, viewers will feel as if they are on location instead of in their living room."

 

XDCAM HD Technology Most Widely Accepted for HDTV

The adoption of XDCAM HD technology by the SURVIVOR team is the latest milestone in the industry-wide acceptance of the optical format. XDCAM technology has become a favorite of reality television producers, for its on-set flexibility, random access and editing convenience.

 

            "Often, reality crews are capturing hours of footage, with action often occurring on the fly so a camcorder that can be ready at a moment's notice is key for them," said Wayne Zuchowski, XDCAM marketing manager, Sony Electronics. "SURVIVOR's decision to shoot with XDCAM HD technology will further push the production boundaries for reality TV, creating a new sensation much as the series did at its introduction."
