A package rolls into Davison High School on a warm September day. The address reads, “Randy Scott, Davison High School”.
Inside the package, and the other packages to come, lies the future of Davison High School’s television station.
The Broadcast Pix Granite Switcher is the key piece to the re-invention of DTV in this new school year. The switcher runs the show when we’re live. It controls how we present ourselves on-air during live events. Not only that, but soon it will be the main center for all of our graphics as well. With that said, it is without a doubt the most important piece!
Another key piece to our live event broadcasts is the brand new cameras we got. The Sony PXW-X320 XDCAM’s are top-notch cameras that DTV will be using for big events such as football games and live concerts at DHS. These changes mean DTV can finally move from analog to Digital, and now we can shoot and edit all videos in High Definition.
The newest addition to our upgrade is our new audio board, the Soundcraft LX7ii. Not only will our video look good, it will sound great. This board allows us to preview our audio without having to put sound out on air.
These upgrades have been 10 years in the making. Everything was paid for by funds raised by the DTV program, Career Tech Education funds, and generous help from the Davison Schools administration.
With all of these changes a new foundation has been created for the DTV program to continue to grow and create great television and educational experiences for years to come.
