KTVO premieres brand new HD Set

Behind the scenes at the new set

For the first time in history, KTVO is now broadcasting all newscasts in high definition.

The new set is just a small piece of the HD conversion. Years of work from teams of people all across the country have been happening behind the scenes.

KTVO has been using a temporary set for the past few weeks while the new set was built.

Four new robotic cameras, color-changing panels, a green screen, a new control room and new graphics are all a part of the HD conversion, which cost $1.5 million.

The Ottumwa bureau set was also upgraded, and KTVO News at 6:30 is broadcasting in HD too.
