CBS to present “Survivor” in HD


Sony and CBS have joined forces to bring the reality series Survivor to high definition. Sony XDCAM HD Professional Disc system will be used to shoot the upcoming 17th edition of Survivor in high definition, with production scheduled to begin this summer and the premiere episode debuting in the fall.

The XDCAM HD camcorders and decks to be deployed are a direct replacement for Sony Digital Betacam equipment used to craft the series’ groundbreaking style since its premiere.
