I would guess that the switching equipment they use at local stations would have to be completely replaced, and that consists of their entire "control board". It handles camera switching, specifal effects, audio, everything required to broadcast a show. And first they would invest in HD cameras; otherwise, the switcher would be a waste of money. I can't imagine the cost... 40 years ago, a cheap studio colour camera cost $50,000.
