Trivia

This was by far one of the most techincally ambitious and expensive Oscar productions ever staged. Conceived by late Production Designer Bob Keene, the stage featured five forty foot tall video towers each capable of producing imagery independently or one large image when grouped together. This scenic element was used to display images of previous Oscar appearances as presenters took the stage, nomination packages, and even the famous five-box when winners were announced. This show set a precedent for the convergence of video and staging technologies that have become nearly ubiquitous in modern concerts and events. This was the first time the ceremony used High Definition clip masters for nomination packages [1], though the show was not broadcast to the domestic ABC audience in High Definition. The first true HD telecast was in 2003. Generally, high-definition refers to an increase in resolution or clarity such as in: High-definition television (HDTV), television formats that have a higher resolution than their contemporary counterparts High-definition video, which is used in HDTV broadcasting, as well as digital film and computer HD video file formats HDV...
