Aug 24, 2017If you haven’t checked out SCTV lately, take a peek. You’ll see a big improvement in the way our programming looks. The improvements began last summer when SCTV upgraded all our studio equipment to high definition.
At the end of May, SCTV completed a major project to upgrade the robotic cameras and electronics in town hall to high definition. Six cameras in the two town hall meeting rooms were replaced with new robotic high definition cameras. Also, all the video electronics in the town hall control room were replaced.
The final step occurred earlier this week when SCTV and Comcast replaced the aging analog modulators that were used to send our programming to Comcast with new digital encoders. Our deep thanks go to the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for providing a matching grant, and to Rick Wagner and all the others who contributed to our capital campaign. Thanks also to the SCTV volunteers and staff who contributed so much time to the conversion effort. We are indebted to Board Member Mark Orenstein without whose help this would not have happened.
