Just months ago we began our conversion to high definition quality. After all the hard work from the Diversified team and the WTOP members who helped, our studio has completed its conversion to HD.
On Saturday, October 22 we pulled off the first of our HD broadcasts. Both the women’s and men’s ice hockey game presented the entire crew with the challenge of using equipment that no one was familiar with.
Members will continue to practice on the new equipment with upcoming broadcasts such as our “Media Summit Red Carpet Show” and “Election Night in Oswego” coverage. A goal is to continue to learn how to make sure the live stream is up and running and that the audio during the hockey games is up to par.
After a successful Facebook Live and live Twitter chat about the upgrade, we were able to get followers and viewers attention days before the upgrade was completed. There for the reaction to our first HD broadcast from alumni and viewers via social media was awesome! We appreciate all of those who tuned in for the hockey kickoff.
Now we move onto training week and run through week. “Those who were apart of the hockey broadcasts have a little advantage because they’ve already worked with the new equipment” Taylor Ksiazek, ‘18 says.
Thank you to everyone who has followed along during this crazy, awesome experience! We are all very excited to reign in a new era of WTOP and face the challenges of learning and working with all the new equipment throughout the rest of this semester!
