TV Studio Opens on Tremont Street

2/25/2008

Suffolk University officially opened its new, street-level television studio Feb. 25 at 73 Tremont St.

The studio is the setting for television production and broadcast journalism classes within the Communication and Journalism Department, and streaming video panels at the base of its window panels enliven the streetscape.

“The University is acutely aware of the importance of an active street life that promotes pedestrian traffic,” said Vice President for External Affairs John Nucci. “Passers-by will be attracted by the video displays, and they will be able to watch the operation of the TV studio through the storefront windows along Tremont Street.”

The 660-square-foot studio is equipped with three high-definition digital cameras, a full lighting grid and a state-of-the-art control room.

“Our new television studio will enable our students to receive state-of-the-art instruction in television studio production,” said Associate Professor Robert Rosenthal, chair of the Communication and Journalism department. “It also provides an exciting venue for our ‘Temple Street’ television program, and we plan to produce Suffolk University newscasts and a sports show.”

“Temple Street,” which is broadcast on Boston Cable Access (BNN), produces features on Suffolk University and the Boston community, focusing on Beacon Hill and downtown. 

The studio also will be used to conduct broadcast television interviews with local business, political, sports and cultural leaders.
