Thought so for the Olympics stuff as it did all look really good in HD during the sportsday programming. Presumably the production for the news during the Olympics was all done in the N6 gallery at TVC which is HD?
No - N6
is entirely SD. None of the news galleries at TVC
are HD - the move to W1 is when they get HD facilities.
The Lund Point BBC News studios for the Olympics were HD. For BBC One HD to get an HD News programme a non-News studio (TC4) in TVC had to be used (gallery only) to hub between Lund Point (in HD), Sport News in Salford (in HD) and N6 (in SD and upconverted) and produce a feed for BBC One. There were 3 or 4 directors involved (Lund Point, TC4, N6 and Salford Sport News) to make the show rather than the normal 1 or 2 (N6 and Salford Sport News)
The HD sources from Lund Point, Salford (and AIUI some local replays) were thus able to be routed to BBC One HD through TC4 staying in HD without going anywhere near SD N6. N6 was used to play-in SD material to TC4, and possibly also to sub-route SD outside sources?
Olympic Breakfast and Olympic Sportsday came from the BBC Sport studio, and the individual cameras in that studio were fibred up to Salford, to allow the HD galleries in Salford to produce the shows.
