New Modulator

Give a big thanks to Mike Corkery for donating the new modulator! I came in after school today to test out the new modulator. I set up channel 20 as the wide shot from the camera up in video engineering and channel 16 should be infrared. The dual RG6 cable should also be in soon for installation so we can connect the rest of the school to video engineering. Lastly, Tuesday we hopefully will be receiving the new Tricaster Studio.

RF to Backstage Almost Done

The setup crew, Rick and I, worked on modulating 2 channels from master control into our cable TV distribution system backstage. This will allow for the distribution of one infrared channel and one channel that has direct feed from our video switcher to 10 TV's backstage. Next step is to tie into the high school cable distribution system.

We're also awaiting for our new Tricaster Studio to arrive. Take a look!

Keep checking back for more information.
