Kean University has replaced its television studio equipment with new high-definition equipment that is the standard in studios and newsrooms around the world.
Professor Gina Gili, who teaches TV Studio Production and Media Performance, said the new equipment puts students in real-world scenarios. She teaches a studio production course in which students learn how to produce a show.
Kean students are producing eight shows in the studio.
The new equipment includes a high-definition media switcher, graphics workstation with LiveText Software, teleprompter workstation, two new flat-panel TV displays and three ProHD camcorders with high resolution. Up to eight cameras and other external devices can be connected to the new switcher.
Kean is also offering virtual sets, which go beyond green-screen technology in using video or photos to create realistic-looking backdrops. The new equipment can also record multiple streams of video, as well as stream over the internet.
