Tonight's Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been broadcasted in wide-screen. This is the first time that the Eurovision Song Contest has been broadcasted in wide-screen format.
A majority of the western European countries used the 16/9 television format, while most countries from eastern Europe used the conventional 4/3 format. The Belgian company Alfacam, which also provided a lot of technical supplies for the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 in Jerusalem, is responsible for the wide-screen television broadcast of the contest.
It's possible that both broadcasts differ a little from eachother because both formats need a different direction.
