College of the Canyons Anchors Remodeled Studio with Broadcast Pix Granite 5000 Live Video Production System

Broadcast Pix today announced that College of the Canyons, a community college in Valencia, Calif., that serves the Santa Clarita area, has installed a Granite 5000 live video production system as part of an upgrade to HD production for its studio and control room facilities. The system is used for classroom instruction as well as the production of Cougar News, a student-produced news program that is streamed live towww.cougarnews.com.

Part of the Division of Fine and Performing Arts, the Department of Media Entertainment Arts (MEA) has more than 400 students, including more than 85 broadcast students. Ron Entrekin, broadcast lab technical engineer, said part of the certification offered through the department is based on providing training on professional equipment. The move to HD production was a must, he added, because HD is where a lot of broadcast and high-end production houses are going.

Local bond funds allocated for upgrading the college campus paid for the $1 million renovation. In addition to a new Granite 5000, which was installed in February by the Garden Grove, Calif.-based offices of VMI, Inc., the facility now features a Yamaha LS9 digital audio mixer and three new JVC GY-HD250U ProHD cameras with studio configurations on Libec pedestals.

Entrekin praised the 2 M/E workflow of the Granite 5000. With its DVI output, one M/E is used to feed background monitors on the set and change them on the fly during a show. It did exactly what we wanted at a price we could afford, Entrekin said. The 2 M/E workflow is how we want to teach in the control room, and Broadcast Pix works better than any other system out there.

For Entrekin, one of the main reasons for choosing the Granite system was Fluent Watch Folders, which allows students to import video files over the network, even during a live program. He also said they use the built-in clip and animation stores, as well as the built-in Harris Inscriber GS CG. Entrekin said there are also plans to integrate Fluent Rapid CG into the system to feed a handful of 46-inch monitors across the facility with updated news and weather, along with programming.

Granite 5000 includes support for Fluent-View customizable displays, but MEA added support for an additional two monitors for its facility. Three Fluent-View monitors are used in the control room one for the director, two 60-inch LCD monitors for the technical director while the fourth is used in the audio room. The audio person can see whats coming before it gets to air, Entrekin explained. We couldnt do that before. Our audio students love being able to see whats coming next.

Students produce seven episodes of Cougar News each semester, as well as four specials. Episodes are also shown on SCVTV, the local PEG (public, education, government) channel on Time Warner Cable. The programs are also available on demand on the schools Web site andwww.scvtv.com.

Meanwhile, MEAs previous production system, a Broadcast Pix Targa 2000 purchased in 2007, is now being used by advanced students to produce live school baseball and basketball coverage, which is streamed to the Web site via Skype. Our students have found a use for it beyond what we expected, Entrekin said.
