UW-Green Bay is building a media hub

With the start of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay came Educational Communication and the Center for Television Production. The television studio operated for many years and had ties to Wisconsin Public Television. In 2002, the center closed and began operating as a non-profit video production facility called Educational Television Productions of Northeast Wisconsin. For a time, the production center operated in the Educational Services building at UW-Green Bay. Eventually it also closed and production moved to CESA 7.

Studio space and equipment have been returned to campus. It was a classic mix of standard-definition equipment including three-quarter-inch decks, Betacam, one-inch tape, and DVC-Pro. BTS cameras and the early 1970s Kliegl lighting system were only used for teaching and campus video.

Fast forward to 2022 and the campus continues its video production and radio broadcast work with a new Media Hub for the Communication program.

The new production center houses high-definition video cameras, one-touch recording systems, multitrack audio production, voice-over booths and a student radio. An LED lighting system is also included along with a new console, digital radio station and Technics turntables. The television studio has professional level equipment such as Allen Heath, Ross Video, Hitachi cameras and Libec tripods. The radio area has an Arrakis audio console as well as EV20 microphones.

With many delays in the supply chain, the university is moving forward, albeit a little slower than originally planned. The equipment will be used for campus productions, on-campus classes, student podcasts, and other faculty, staff, and student needs.
