WELCOME TO THE STUDIO BLOG!

 

We hope you’ll find this blog useful while you’re working in the studios. We’ve included tons of information that we hope will be a good resource. We will continue to update it throughout the semester. Please let us know if there is any other useful information we can include.

STUDIO EQUIPMENT REQUEST FORMS 

In an effort to de-densify the Tufte Television Facilities and comply with COVID guidelines, we have moved our equipment checkout process to an online format. Equipment must be requested at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled studio time. Your equipment will be left in a drop-off bin in the studio at the start of your scheduled time. Make sure to return all of the vended equipment to that bin and leave it where you found it when your time is up. Any additional equipment requests during your studio time can be requested using the intercom system.

 

THE STUDIO PODCAST

Draw from the experiences of current and former students as they talk through the lessons they have learned from past productions. Created during the COVID quarantine of 2020, The Studio Podcast is a student-run conversation that serves to pass on tips to students who are looking to take on new challenges during their time at Emerson.

This guide has been written as a reference tool to help Technical Support Specialists become better acquainted with the Tufte PPC Television Facilities equipment and its operation.

This guide will provide you with an overview of the Studio’s important systems. It is not within the scope of this guide to supply the same detailed information found in each system’s user manual. Instead, you will find the answers to commonly asked questions for operating and troubleshooting the Studio’s equipment.

For more detailed information and training, please speak with one of the Studio Managers or read the equipment operational manuals, which are available in the TV Studio Office in hard copy or pdf.

In the TV Studio Library, you will find resources to improve your general knowledge of our television equipment and operational manuals.

The Knowledge Base provides links to some very helpful and useful material, provided by equipment manufacturers.  This information is mostly non-equipment specific, and is a great reference tool to use in conjunction with textbooks and class materials.  For example, The Handbook of Intercom Systems, is an excellent source to learn more about how intercom systems work.

The User Manuals section provides operational manuals for specific pieces of equipment used in the Tufte PPC Television Facilities.  The manuals are listed by which room the equipment is installed and used, except the section on Supplemental Audio Equipment.
