First time I officially hear that YES NETWORK is doing or planning to do HD. Don't your hope NY VOOMERs on YES-HD as it may appear in D* first. This might break my E* connection and make it change to D* if it happens.

As High Definition sports and entertainment production rapidly proliferates, Canon lenses are behind the scenes and setting the standard for quality in mobile production. Last year, Canon lenses were chosen to outfit 12 of the 13 mobile HD trucks in development nationwide. With products onboard 17 trucks in total and more scheduled for 2004, Canon has become well established as the leading force in HD production and the de facto standard in the industry.

Fast-expanding truck fleets and an increased number of sports and entertainment events being produced in HD on a daily basis by major players such as ABC, CBS, ESPN, NBC, Turner, VOOM, and YES Network, are testament to the growth and wide acceptance of the HD format. Production companies are ramping up to meet this demand and utilizing the latest technology, including Canon's advanced HD lenses, to ensure the highest quality.

"Sports and entertainment is some of the most-watched programming on TV, so mobile production provides a lot of people's first taste of HD," said Jerry Gepner, president of NMT. "Canon has always provided not only an excellent product but superior service. Another thing that we have found, and NMT has been providing HD facilities since 1998, during that time Canon has always taken the time to share not just product information but core knowledge on HD with us. That's important, because as the technology evolves, everyone has to learn together."
