(h2Onews.org/16/11/2010) Vatican Television Center has a new truck equipped to produce high definition programmes. The new facility, called an OB Van, was presented this morning at the Holy See Press Office. Father Federico Lombardi, director of Vatican Television Center, said the development was necessary so that Vatican television remains in keeping with advances in tele-visual communications, allowing it to continue the diffusion of the Pope's image and his messages worldwide. Once the new mobile technology is in place, Father Lombardi said all Vatican television productions will be in high definition. Vatican Television Center was established in 1983 and each year films thousands of hours of events, both in the Vatican and on papal trips. The new facility was designed by Sony with financial assistance from the Knights of Columbus.
