Channel 6 celebrates new facility

Truckee-Tahoe Community Television will hold an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 10, to introduce the community to its new television facility.

The open house will feature two hours of live broadcasting so visitors can see the facility at work.

This exciting format will highlight music from local groups and youth and will let the community see the possibilities for future programming produced locally. The new studio is located at Tahoe-Truckee High School, in the shop area near the Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District office. Turn left from Donner Pass Road, into the driveway between the district office and the high school and follow the signs to TTCTV.

Truckee-Tahoe Community Television will provide community members access to television production facilities and air time on Channel 6 in Truckee. Television is a very effective way of communicating. For those interested in using the technology and spending the necessary time, the new Channel 6 facility will make it easier than ever.

TTCTV was funded last year by USA Media through franchise renewal negotiations with the Town of Truckee.

The new facility is now ready to open. A new studio, control room and edit suites will be the focus of activities for community members who would like to learn to produce programming either in the studio or in the field. Residents of the Truckee area will be able to take several certification workshops that will allow them to use video cameras, edit facilities and the studio.

People will be able to produce programs about issues, events, personal interests, local history, interesting people and a myriad of other topics. They will be assisted with each step and the staff at TTCTV will help produce studio shows as well. The studio can be used to produce programming about art, music, talk shows, how-to’s, and many other topics.

Staff from TTCTV will be actively inviting groups, organizations and individuals to use the facility as a way to effectively communicate with the rest of the community.

There will be a schedule of workshops announced in January and the evening schedule for program production will get underway a couple of months after that.

Most activities will be free or will have a nominal fee charged to cover basic costs.
