C-SPAN isn't ready to follow MSNBC, CNBC and the rest into the breach immediately, but that doesn't mean it can't start planning for the future. A switch to digital in June means equipment upgrades, and new hardware from Motorola is spec'd to deliver not only that, but also future upgrades to MPEG-4 compression and HD on all three channels later on. The next time we watch a big leaguer or CEO weaseling through a session on Capitol Hill we expect to catch every drop of sweat in great detail.
