As I understand the process of HD production, it is not so much the cameras and camera support equipment, it is the use of the truck to process the picture once delivered from the cameras.
All of the KSE/Altitude teams share Altitude owned equipment, but they do not own the truck that sends the feeds to the satellites that brings it to your homes. The HD truck is significantly more expense to use than a regular tv truck.
This is the main source of the increased cost not so much the cameras. I also beleive that the transmission of an HD signal is more expensive, this is not something that can be mitigated.
Altitude does use overhead shots on a regular basis for the Mammoth as well as the Avalanche. I love this feature but unfortuantely the referees don't get to use this one!!!!!
Hope that answers your question!!
It did! Thanks Steve!!
