New Video Broadcast Studio Delivers MIIS Experts to International Media
The accessibility of faculty and staff experts at the Monterey Institute to international television news media took a giant leap forward in November with the launch of the Institute’s new video broadcast studio. The studio’s HD video camera, professional lighting and sound, and customizable digital backdrop allow our experts to connect with broadcast news organizations for live and pre-taped interviews at a moment’s notice.
Just a few days after the installation and testing of the equipment was completed, the studio was the setting for the November 25 appearance of Dr. Jeffrey Lewis of the Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies on PBS Newshour. The segment on which he appeared focused on the Iran nuclear agreement, and was broadcast live during the East Coast broadcast, with anchor Judy Woodruff interviewing Dr. Lewis as he sat in our on-campus studio on the third floor of the McGowan Building.
The ReadyCam® system from Video Link uses Enhanced IP™ technology to transmit broadcast quality HD video over the Internet to anywhere around the world. When not being used for broadcast interviews, the studio and equipment can also be used to create original video content. The studio has already been used to record a variety of student and faculty interviews for the MIIS website, as well as materials for a planned online course.
