Broadcasting undergoes equipment upgrades to KMSU studio
KMSU, the campus radio station, recently received an equipment upgrade. The new equipment is not only going to help the program, but also improve the education for broadcasting and production students.
The most important item received was the Tek Tricaster TC1. It is a high definition switcher that will be used in the control room.
Chris Brown, a student who works on the engineering area of the station, is really excited to explore and learn more about the TC1.
“It’s a lot closer to what students would be working with in the field, which will also help us create way better content,” Brown said.
Taylor Rizzari, a broadcasting major, really feels like the new equipment is going to provide an opportunity to expand the program.
“We are already lucky enough to have a TV studio on campus but this new TC1 just puts the icing on the cake,” Rizzari said.
Neil Roberts, a associate professor in the broadcasting program, believes that this equipment is a great new platform for students.
The machine cost about $15,000 and was funded by the student technology fee.
