You may have noticed some subtle changes as you watch Eyewitness News. We are in the process of going to high definition, hi-def, or commonly called HD.
I won’t bore you with all the engineering and science behind it, but basically your picture will be getting clearer. HD makes watching football a whole new experience, and you can actually see a blade of grass.
Grass is fine but what about people? Legend has it that HD will reveal every wrinkle, pimple or bloodshot eye. Our technical guys here say that is not necessarily true.
Denise was worried if she would go from looking like this,
or even this:
Our thanks to the Evil Queen from Snow White and Mama from the Addams Family for the use of their wrinkled visages.
The ageless Al had his concerns, too.
Rest assured, we are told our new HD cameras are the best around, and your Eyewitness News programs and the people who bring them to you will look pretty much the same. Overall, going HD will greatly enhance your experience watching the news. The breaking news, sports highlights, and investigative reports will all be much clearer.
Look for us to be fully HD by late spring, early summer. We have lighting to change, sets to rework and plastic surgery and skin peels to undergo.
Just kidding. Besides, we’ll always look better than some of the other folks who show up on Eyewitness News.
Still, wouldn’t it be nice if they could come up with technology to make us look younger?
