September 2020 Newsletter

Steve Says

It was a busy summer at MVTV, and our live events (two of them simultaneously on cable and Youtube) went well and provided some learning experiences. They were:

· MVRHS 2020 Graduation link:

· MVCS Possible Dreams Auction

· Sail MV Auction

· Hospice Auction


Producers: the studio is available for recording! 

Please alert your guests that masks must be worn into the building, and social distancing is available in the studio. All studio shoots are by appointment with me.

I am still upgrading studio lighting, and working on the MVTV archives in our new Signology box.  Steve and I are looking into replacing our aging Tricaster…   more on this later.


Classes in both camera use and editing with Premier Pro are available to members here at MVTV. I will meet with you outside in our tent, and masks are required.

Please call me at 508-696-9760 to make an appointment.

MVTV Board of Directors

Most of the discussion at the Sept. 1st Zoom meeting centered on the possibility of televising MVRHS fall sports. If these sports are played no spectators will be allowed, so live television would be important for families and sports fans.

The board also discussed replacing our aging Tricaster… Steve and Kelly are working on it, and will report next month.
