The trial won't start on Friday... it's probably a hearing to prepare for the trial.. for the judge to hear motions from both sides on what will and will not be allowed as evidence into the trial, to discuss the witnesses for each side, and to agree to the terms of how the trial will be played out so the rights of both parties are protected.

Expect jury selection to start next week or thereafter.

I believe you are mistaken, Smurf. According to the Radio & Television News Directors Association (RTNDA), judges have "broad discretion" to allow or prohibit cameras in the courtroom.
Canon 3A(7) of the Colorado Code of Judicial Conduct gives judges the power, implemented in Canon 3A(8), to authorize media coverage of court proceedings, subject to several guidelines. Judges also have the power to prohibit or limit coverage upon a finding of substantial likelihood of interference with a fair trial, disruption or degradation of the proceedings, or harm which is distinct from that caused by coverage by other types of media. Those wishing to cover a particular proceeding must submit a written request to do so to the presiding judge at least one day in advance of the proceeding desired to be covered and must give a copy of the request to the counsel for each party participating in the proceeding. Coverage of jury selection, in camera hearings and most pre-trial hearings is prohibited. No close-up photography of the jury, bench conferences or attorney-client communication is permitted. Consent of the participants is not required. The judge may also terminate coverage if the terms of the canon or any additional rules imposed by the Court have been violated. Only one television and one still camera are allowed in the courtroom at one time and the media are responsible for arranging pooling agreements.

It sounds very similar to the California rules -- with the exception that California allows coverage of almost all court proceedings, where "coverage of.... most pre-trial hearings is prohibited" -- and trials in California are regularly televised.

Obviously, today's hearing was inconsequential. There's no future hearing dates listed on the court docket and no media coverage on it, as of yet. I called the Denver Post and the newsroom editor said none of their reporters were assigned to attend the hearing.
