SFA unveils upgraded studio
Nacogdoches, TX — The new and improved SFA-TV2 studio and KSAU radio station at Stephen F. Austin State University, which received a more than $200,000 renovation, was unveiled Thursday.
The SFA-TV2 studio was refinished with new flooring, windows, production set and a 2ME Ross Vision production switcher, which allows the student production crew to switch camera views and layer editing effects, such as dissolve.
"It's a great advancement," said Simone Gardner, a senior radio/TV broadcasting student who hopes to one day work for The Weather Channel. "We have a green screen now, and I'm really excited because I want to do weather and meteorology."
In the studio, students play all the roles - floor manager, camera 1, camera 2, talent, audio and technical director, said LaDyrian Cole, a senior radio/TV broadcasting and journalism student who aspires to be a correspondent for E! Entertainment News.
"It's very up-to-date. It's what they're using in the stations now," Cole said. "I think this is going to better prepare us because we'll already know the equipment, the technologies, the systems that actual stations are using."
