Prospect for the Digital Era
Ms. Shigemori shared with us the various efforts and measures taken by NHK, other broadcasters and Japanese government toward complete deadline of Terrestrial TV Digitalization by July 24, 2011.
They are quite serious about this switchover, and the efforts and strategies are comprehensive and far-reaching. Much we can learn from their efforts.
HD Program Making
Mr. Sekimoto is one of the most senior HD producers in NHK, having started HD production in 1987. He shared with us the various kinds of HDTV programs to promote the attractiveness of HD. He showed us the footstep of these efforts by showing us the various programs he has made. He made a special news feature on the 10 years after the Kobe Earthquake. Very touching and done with so much news integrity.
