The world of television production just got a whole light brighter for the students at the Doral Academy Preparatory School who are now practicing their production skills in a brand new control room and studio designed and installed by Midtown Video. As part of the class curriculum, students are required to produce a video profile, public service announcement, interview, news broadcast, music video and commercial.
Students are producing the school’s morning announcements and student productions, in a control room outfitted with an HD switcher and filming in a studio with Sony’s new HXC 100 Studio Cameras.
Carlos Ferrals, TV production teacher said,” Fernando and the Midtown Video team met with the architects in the planning stages. From the consulting process on, Midtown Video was extremely helpful, and knowledgeable; they are always just a phone call away, they did an outstanding, job!”
In addition, the students are using AJA KiPros for a tapeless workflow. They are editing their stories on IMacs in the classrooms and pushing the stored video to the control room where there’s another Apple station for airing the video. Conduits connect the TV control room and studio to the Gym and auditorium with Triax cables.
Added Ferrals, “This hands on experience is the ideal preparing these student for the highly competitive world of television production, They’ll be doing all of this now with state of the art equipment.”
