Fairfield University Adds Hitachi Cameras to Media Center

The Voices of Others talk show set
Fairfield University is using Hitachi HD cameras to create "The Voices of Others," a nationally distributed talk show series that fosters multiple ways of thinking, seeing and experiencing the world.

Fairfield University (Fairfield, Conn.) has upgraded its Media Center with the addition of three Hitachi SK-3020P HDTV studio/EFP cameras, equipped with Hitachi CU-3100 camera control units and Fujinon HA18x7.6BRM HD lenses. The Media Center serves the production needs of the university and has a unique role in supporting the academic requirements of Fairfield's New Media Film, Television and Radio Program within the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.

The Hitachi cameras, which reside in the Media Center's 30 x 45 foot Studio B, are controlled and switched remotely from the University's satellite uplink/television production truck.

Besides enabling Fairfield to move up to multi-standard, broadcast-quality, native 16:9 HDTV production capability, the new Hitachi HDTV studio/field cameras also can be used to produce video from remote sites.

"The Hitachi SK-3020P's were especially attractive to us because they have the flexibility to be used in our studio as well as taken on the road," said Brian F. Merry, television producer/director at the Fairfield University Media Center.

The production truck, which is equipped with a Thomson Grass Valley Kayak HD production switcher and Chyron LEX2 HD graphics engine, also has a Ku-Band satellite uplink.
