Ohlone College Television Going HiDef - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—Work has begun to convert the Ohlone College Television Station into an HD (High Definition) Broadcast Center. Full conversion will be completed in 2014.
The upgrade benefits the College’s Broadcasting students by giving them hands-on experience using the same equipment found at many television stations and video production facilities. Students trained on up-to-date professional video cameras and editing equipment have a significant advantage in the California job market where most of the nation’s video programs are produced.
The College also benefits through better, sharper and clearer communications to the community from the College president, the board of trustees, and student organizations. Videos highlighting College programs and events will have superior picture quality and improved sound.
Most of the funding for the upgrade comes from Measure G, the bond issue passed by Fremont and Newark voters. When the conversion is complete, viewers will be able to tune in to the College’s television channel, Comcast ONTV Channel 28, or the web stream at www.ohlonetv.com and see the noticeably higher quality video.
