I know people dont like Rota, I just wish to know if the horse racing idents still pop up. The reason being the next Horse racing on ITV isnt for a couple of months it will be interesting if ITV keeps the idents in use to hopeful promote its new acquisition.
Is the next post dreaded?

Nothing today, or indeed yesterday after the racing. I wonder if ITV4 will have anything special for the next couple of Saturdays?


I would be very surprised if there not at least one new, especial since it has a few programmes on ITV4. Maybe the horse idents will appear next Saturday and said jct the CA will tell viewers there live horse racing over on ITV4..... etc?

ITV 2 play out SD idents on ITV 2 HD and it is rather noticeable when a break bumper is in SD (why?) and then switches to HD for the upcoming promo and the difference is very clear. I thought on these HD channels everything was in HD and downscaled for SD? So why are they showing a mix of SD and HD graphics?

Okay, Native and Upscaled HD programming I understand, but Upscaled HD graphics? You have got to be joking.

ITV uses Clarity for their continuity graphics (i.e. automated ECP, Menus, Pointers, IPPs), so that is in HD. Idents & bumpers still seem to be upscaled, however, promos only recently made the switch to HD in the past few months.*

UTV's idents are in HD though.

*Promo was cut in HD, but played out in upscaled SD.
