One of the foremost concerns of broadcasters today is the impact of recent advances in equipment design and performance on television newsgathering. In fact, it is seldom that technological developments have so significantly influenced the future of an entire segment of the broadcasting industry. Recognizing the importance of this aspect of television news reporting, the SMPTE devoted a full day and evening at the 10th Annual Winter Television Conference this year in Detroit to an intensive coverage of the subject.
