Lander University Upgrades Digital Media Studio with Blackmagic Design


Lander University Upgrades Digital Media Studio with Blackmagic Design
Lander University may be a small university in Greenwood, SC, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in passion. Like every other university in the country, Lander's faculty and staff want to equip students to be outstanding in their fields. Thanks in part to Assistant Professor of digital media Cory Carpenter, students in the Mass Communications and Media Studies program are doing just that. In his two year tenure working at Lander, Cory pushed for an upgrade for the digital media studio's outdated equipment, and the program's 125 students now learn about television production using three Blackmagic Studio Cameras HD, an ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K switcher, a Smart Videohub 16x16 router, one HyperDeck Studio Pro and a SmartScope Duo 4K.

Content Insider #508 - Keeping Viewers
Content Insider #508 - Keeping Viewers
OTT (over the top) viewing is great...any time, any place, any device. Our kids love it. Heck you probably love it. True the new content delivery folks like it for the most part but their challenge is keeping you "tuning in" to their service. The problem is called churn - kids (and adults) moving from one source to another to another. Every time you leave it costs a lot of money to get a new viewer. The key to keeping you using them is simple...keep delivering the content they want. For some services it's super easy. For others not so much. The answer is understanding what each individual wants to view, when and where. Better use of your information and making intelligent recommendations spells profits for the service provider, advertisers and marketers and...a satisfied viewer. Read More

Manhattan College Upgrades to 4K Television Studio with Blackmagic Design
Manhattan College Upgrades to 4K Television Studio with Blackmagic Design
Manhattan College is a private liberal arts college located in Riverdale, NY, a neighborhood in the northwest portion of the Bronx. In 2008, the college formed a new communication department, and as part of that initiative they began building a new, professional television studio for students in the broadcasting/telecommunications program. It took several years, but after putting in several proposals the department received the funds necessary to upgrade the studio to HD. While researching new equipment, Michael realized that Blackmagic Design's line of studio products would allow them to leapfrog over HD and upgrade the studio to 4K for roughly the same price.

The Public Broadcasting Act 50 Years Later
When Lyndon B. Johnson signed the bill that created the Corporation of Public Broadcasting in November 1967, he was envisioning a way for the public to gain access to quality television. Unlike Great Britain, the United States had no public service broadcasting system in place when television came in vogue. Instead they had a mixture of commercial television stations that were highly lucrative and small non-commercialized radio and television stations that aired local and national educational programs.

Content Insider #504 - Taking Flight
Drones as small as mosquitos and as large as a house were being shown everywhere at CES and the only ones that looked worthwhile had cameras attached to them or were being talked about for protection or production. Actually a couple of the "this is going to be a hot, fantastic market for us slashed staffs or closed their doors. The drone business is good and a lot of dads bought them for their kids over the holidays ... then crashed them. All of these things are great if they're used responsibly but being thoughtful and responsible isn't a huge market. Read More
