Greensboro Television Network (GTN) produces live meetings from the Greensboro Council Chamber. The chamber is equipped with five remote control cameras and a presentation system displaying data, photos and video on both a 6-by-8 foot screen for those attending the meeting and 19-inch monitors for Council members seated at the dais/desk. The presentation system can display flat art, PowerPoint, and DVD video. The presentation system is self-serve and residents should be prepared to load and run their own presentations. These facilities in Council Chamber are linked via fiber optics to a television production control room equipped with a Broadcast Pix Switcher, Panasonic remote camera controller, and support equipment.
GTN also produces programs in the field using three Sony XDCAM EX cameras and three Avid Media Composer non-linear editors. GTN produces meetings and forums live-to-disc in the field using a Newtek Tricaster configured to handle up to three cameras and multiple audio channels. Character generator graphics and music for these live-to-disc programs is added in the field providing a ready-to-air show at the end of the event.
