Kingswood finally closing
Feb 11th, 2010, 5:42pm
 
Report on BBC News at
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8509413.stm
As expected very basic and not really mentioning the HUGE amount of work done by KW over the years when the people there (and also Western House of course) really invented every part of the broadcast system before outside companies started making TV kit

I worked in the video rostrum at telly centre which was developed at Kingswood Warren.
At the time it was 'State of the Art' digital video processing & very much in demand by the graphic designers.

I remember too the 'Eureka' project in the 80's (I think  Undecided )
which spawned the very first true 1300 line HD picture.
Sad that it's going. Sad
