SignaSys completes Stanford University upgrade

December 18, 2003

SignaSys has completed engineering and integration services with Stanford University's Stanford Video department, a division of University Communications in Stanford, CA. Stanford's live radio and television broadcast studio is in a new facility on campus at 691 Pampas Lane.

The two-phase project began with temporarily relocating and redeploying Stanford University's multi-camera production studio and various edit suites before the final move to the new facility to prevent down time. During the second phase of the project, SignaSys relocated the studio's system, the newly constructed permanent campus facility, and upgraded it with a digital infrastructure.

Stanford Video uses these facilities primarily for national distribution of live news contribution, the production of informational television programs, and to create original program materials of university events. Stanford's new studio facilitates hundreds of live feeds a year, servicing primarily news broadcasters featuring the university's scholars. Stanford experts have relied on the feed facilities to appear live on ABC's Nightline; PBS's The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer; CNN's Crossfire and NewsNight with Aaron Brown; and MSNBC's The News with Brian Williams. National Public Radio also has secured the university's feed capabilities to accommodate guests for All Things Considered, Talk of the Nation and Science Friday. International media companies such as the British and Canadian broadcasting corporations have used the facility as well.
