Students at Oneonta High School will soon get hands-on experience with television production, thanks to a recent donation from SUNY Oneonta.

The college donated a complete TV studio setup – including three cameras with teleprompters, an audio mixer, video switcher, graphics generator, racks, monitors, wireless microphone sets, tripods, pedestals and an intercom system—to the school.

SUNY Oneonta junior Tyler Kimball, chief engineer for the college's television station, WIRE TV, built the system in the college’s TV studio and helped set up the donated gear in December in a high school classroom that has been converted into a TV studio.

Oneonta High School social studies and technology teacher AJ Hecox said he is looking forward to using the new equipment in his broadcast communications class. The school already had camcorders, lighting, editing software and other field production equipment, and students have been practicing storytelling, shooting, interviewing and editing. Now, they will be able to go one step further and learn the basics of live television production.

SUNY Oneonta has had a television studio facility in the Hodgdon Instructional Resource Center since the building was constructed in 1966. The college has kept the level of the equipment on par with what students would find in industrial or small-market television stations, with several upgrades over the years. The most recent upgrade to HD placed some very good standard-definition digital equipment out of service.

“I'm thrilled that this equipment is finding a new home at the high school,” said David Geasey, SUNY Oneonta’s director of Creative Media Services. "Generally this gear would be surplussed, but via the New York State CREATE program we were able to donate this gear to Oneonta High School. Most schools are able to purchase inexpensive HD camcorders and software that allow them to teach the techniques of single-camera, shoot-and-edit production. Studio equipment tends to be much more expensive and generally should be purchased as a complete system.”

SUNY Oneonta’s WIRE TV club produces six weekly shows in the college’s TV studio, which is also used in several mass communications classes.
