Vatican TV goes HD
Vatican Television Center has a new truck equipped to produce high definition programmes. The new facility, called an OB Van, was presented this morning at the Holy See Press Office. Father Federico Lombardi, director of Vatican Television Center, said the development was necessary so that Vatican television remains in keeping with advances in tele-visual communications, allowing it to continue the diffusion of the Pope’s image and his messages worldwide. Once the new mobile technology is in place, Father Lombardi said all Vatican television productions will be in high definition.
