The SCTV Facility
Simsbury Community Television offers free training to Simsbury residents to produce original programs or to record local events for the Public channel. Learn how to operate a camera and volunteer to help provide government meetings to the community.
The studio, located in the lower level of Eno Memorial Hall, is available to videotape programs during regular office hours. The studio equipment consists of multiple cameras, a digital video switcher, an eight channel audio mixer and offers multiple recording formats. Programs videotaped in the studio are recorded “live on tape”, edited with graphics and music and aired on the Public channel.
In addition to our studio setup, trained volunteers are welcome to use field equipment to videotape meetings, activities, or events that can’t be brought into the studio. A variety of camcorders, tripods, microphones and lighting are available for use after training.
SCTV also maintains a permanent field production studio at the Town Hall that delivers live coverage of Board and Commission meetings on the Government Channel and live streaming on the SCTV website. The meetings are also recorded and rebroadcast on our Government Channel. The production studio consists of 3 remote controlled cameras in both the Main Meeting Room and the Board of Education Meeting room and is configured for one or two people to run all the equipment – cameras, switcher, graphics, audio, etc.
Simsbury High School has the ability to cablecast Live for special Town meetings, graduation or other events that are staged in the auditorium.
The first choice of professional editors, Final Cut Pro delivers high-performance digital nonlinear editing. Add music, voice-over, pictures, etc to polish your finished production.
Motion offers true film-quality output, GPU accelerated performance, and an astounding toolset. Now you can create advanced motion graphics with drag-and-drop ease, startling clarity, and unprecedented color fidelity — all in real time.
The staff and volunteers of SCTV are here to provide training and assistance to qualified persons interested in producing a program. If you have an interest, bit of news, or a talent that you’d like to share with the citizens of Simsbury on our channels, we can train you to operate a camera, edit, direct, or become involved in television production in a way that suits your needs and interests.
