SAN DIEGO — March 24, 2009 —
Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic today announced that it has provided end-to-end design, installation, and training services in completing a new A/V and broadcast facility for the City of Chino Hills in California. The installation, situated in Chino Hills' new city hall, enables recording of city council meetings and supports production of other community programming. A bulletin board system, also incorporated into Chino Hills' facilities by TV Magic, allows the city to advise residents of local news and events and provides a medium for instant communication to households.
"With our move to a brand-new city hall, we wanted to establish an up-to-date media and broadcast system that would make it easier to reach the community with high-quality audio and video from city proceedings and programs," said Valerie McClung, community relations manager at the City of Chino Hills. "We chose to work with TV Magic's experts because of the company's superior track record in engineering and designing systems of this type. The TV Magic installation has given us state-of-the-art production technology and capabilities, and a better workflow in creating programming, both of which are vital to our goal of providing excellent communications and outreach to Chino Hills residents."
Equipped with a Tightrope server for media storage, playout, and bulletin board messaging; a Broadcast Pix™ switcher system; high-definition Panasonic AW HE-100 robotic cameras; and a Final Cut Pro® editing system, the Chino Hills A/V facility is capable of producing special programming content for government access and has enhanced the production value of recorded meetings. The city also can provide staff members with better access to programming targeted to internal departments. The new bulletin board system serves as a user-friendly platform for delivering timely updates to city employees and constituents. This capability proved critical when the city experienced city-wide emergencies including a major wildfire and earthquake in 2008.
"Current A/V technologies give local government the opportunity to connect with the community through the provision of timely and dynamic messages and productions," said Stephen Milley, vice president of sales and marketing for TV Magic. "Chino Hills is among the growing number of cities taking advantage of professionally integrated media installations to raise their profiles in the community and to make important information and messages available both internally and citywide."
