    I’m trying to find out what the general standards are (as required by major TV networks) for live HD programming, along with typical costs and/ or equipment needed.
    Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

    I am guessing you will need intercom, cameras, character generator, switcher, audio board, teleprompter, camera control units, monitors including vector and wave forum monitors. Some companies have the mentioned items integrated into one system. Maybe a few of your local TV stations could give you a station tour. You would not have to get the same equipment but it should give you an idea. Blackmagic Design has the ATEM systems and Netwek has their Tricaster products. They may or may not be your best bet. There is also products from Grass Valley, Panasonic and Sony. I think Data Video has broadcast equipment as well. Having said that my guess is that you will be broadcast at 1080i.

    You will probably need Closed Captioning as well. Just about every network requires this now…

    Not my monkeys. Not my circus.
