Out with the old, in with the new

Exciting new features in our studio control room!

  • Four digital HiDef Sony Cameras offering powerful remote controls for exposure, color balance, black level, gain, detail, and many other powerful “look” control.
  •  A robotically-controlled camera, “Bot 1,” featuring remote pan, tilt, zoom, and focus. You can save up to 16 shots which can be recalled with one keystroke for rapid response.  
  • Audio board with 16 mic channels, 8 line channels and a Dan Dugan Automatic Mixing card for the first 8 Mic Channels.     
  •  HiDef Compix Character Generator.  
  • Live Skype and internet access so you can accept live Skype calls and share live web updates throughout your program.
  •  High quality telephone system that doesn’t require a physical phone on the set.  Audio from the phone is directly wired into the audio mixer, providing audio for your TV show theme, studio talent, and the caller.  
  • A ChromaKey green curtain will soon be installed to give you the opportunity to use green-screen technology on your show.
  • Virtual sets are now a possibility through the use of the new switcher, ChromaKey and event memory.   Each camera can have its own unique background.   
  • Five KiPro digital hard drive recorders (instead of tape recorders), with which you can isolate cameras to different drives and have complete recordings of all cameras.  
  •  Blue-Ray recorder and two DVD recorders.
Producers who are already certified as technical directors can join staff producer Mark Pirtle on Wednesdays or Thursdays for hands-on training during the production of a live show. Mark can be reached at (713) 524-7700 x19 or at    Producers can take the Studio Workshop class to become certified technical directors once they’ve completed all of the basic classes and have submitted at least 30 minutes of programming.
