A New Production System Designed by Human Circuit Allows UDC TV to Continue its Mission to Support the University of the District of Columbia.
Human Circuit completes phase IV of UDC TV’s HD studio upgrade as another step in the evolution of modernizing UDC Cable TV‘s broadcast production and signal distribution systems to technology that conforms to industry standards for digital transmission of the highest broadcast standard via cable and the Internet. The system allows UDC TV to offer its product in HD to cable providers, the ability to stream multiple channels in HD on its website, via partner website streaming services, or for a future broadcasting partners.
In addition to the HD upgrade, Human Circuit transitioned UDC TV to a file-based video production operation. UDC TV is now equipped with storage for archiving; allowing the expansion of their video library, and serves as a program schedule back-up to both the cable channel and Internet streaming channel. This change provides more efficient production workflow for students and staff. UDC TV is also now equipped to provide live and on-demand video processing in on premise, cloud-based, or hybrid ground-cloud deployments. Included in the installation is an Imagine broadcast file server providing UDC TV with operational efficiency, improved service, and a unified software architecture.
To complete Phase IV, Human Circuit collaborated with Kevin Lee Alan Designs to build a new TV Studio, maximizing the small studio space giving the client increased functionality for the multitude of shows UDC TV produces. UDC TV’s upgrade also included a Ross XPression Studio character generator system for the creation and playback of lower third and full screen graphics along with the ability to create and produce virtual sets. Our work with UDC continues to show that Human Circuit is built on a foundation of long lasting relationships that works in the best interest of the client with a focus on their goals and vision.
