Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Indiana's NewsCenter is now broadcasting local news in high definition.
"It's historic, and fantastic," said Jerry Geisler, General Manager, Indiana's NewsCenter.
In 2009, stations across the country moved from analog signals to digital. Now, after years of hard work, the local news on ABC, NBC and FOX will now broadcast in HD.
"It's a culmination of several years of work. It started by just passing network programming, then our syndicated programming, and this is the last mile, the local programming," said Geisler.
To make it all possible new HD cameras were moved into the studio, a new system for the onscreen graphics was installed and for the people in the control room it took a lot of work and new equipment.
"Whenever you're watching a newscast, whenever you go from video to a picture of Melissa or Eric or Linda, or Stephanie, you know, we have to literally wire that all the way to the antenna," sais Geisler.
The changes are not just behind the screens My Fox Fort Wayne is also getting a brand new set.
"On Monday night at 10 they'll see a whole new look, for the Fox News at 10. It will be the very different program that we want viewers to understand that it is," said Geisler.
Geisler says he’s thankful for all the hands who had a part is making this happen.
"At the end of the day it comes down to people, and we have very talented people. And it's their ingenuity and their hard work that makes the picture a lot clearer for people at home," said Geisler.
