Hitachi Enrolls At University of Nebraska-Lincoln

By Adam Goldberg
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources is using six Hitachi SK-HD1000 native 1080i HDTV studio/field production cameras to produce Market Journal, a weekly, half-hour show focused on agriculture business decisions with analysis of climate conditions, the grain/livestock market and risk-management and marketing strategies.

Three of the cameras are in IANR’s studio, and the other three are kept on a Dodge Sprinter HD production van.

Market Journal airs in widescreen HD on NET1, the Nebraska Educational Television network, with replays on the NET2 statewide public television network.

The university said the show reaches more than one-half of the state’s farm households each week, and it is also available online.
