Vatican Television Center moving toward all-digital system

CWN - June 27, 2013

The Vatican Television Center is moving toward an all-digital system of recording and saving files.

The digital system will allow for more efficient production and dissemination of Vatican television broadcasts. The digital files, which can be transferred through computers, are also more reliable for archival materials.

The Vatican Television Center announced on June 27 a cooperative agreement with Canal 21, the television channel of the Buenos Aires archdiocese, that will provide for digital archiving. Under the same agreement, the Vatican Television Center will acquire the archives of the Argentine channel covering the tenure of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio in Buenos Aires prior to his election as Pope Francis.
