The SVN Broadcast Center takes technology on the road to major ed-tech conferences and associations around the country. Staffed by local students of TV production, the Broadcast Center serves as a prototype studio that any school could implement.
“We had four objectives in mind when we originally created the concept of the Broadcast Center”, says John Churchman, publisher of School Video News. “First, as an eMagazine devoted to TV and Video Production in the K-12 environment, we wanted to create a showcase for products that could be implemented at any grade level. Second, we wanted to create a lab environment in which local schools could participate in the production of programming for the conference which could include producing stories featuring topical conference events, interviews, and streaming of live coverage such as keynote speeches. Third, the Broadcast Center can facilitate distribution of safe programming and moderated content sharing through SchoolTube, and finally, The Broadcast Center affords the hosting conference the ability to create content for other organization functions, such as next year’s event.”
