Florida State Recruits Panasonic for Production
Seminole Productions, the video production unit of Florida State University�s Department of Communications, recently invested in four Panasonic AJ-HPX2000 2/3-inch shouldermount P2 HD camcorders. The camcorders are being used to shoot features for several sports television shows that air on Fox Sports Net/Sun Sports, including Seminole Sports Magazine, a weekly university sports highlight show that reaches more than 2 million households in Florida.

Seminole Productions is deploying the HPX2000s in multicamera setups feeding the video boards at more than 80 live events annually, including Seminoles� football, basketball and baseball games.

The unit also shoots various coaches� shows for Fox Sun Sports in 720/24pN. Students handle about half of the production work. Florida State is following the growing trend of universities bulking up video production departments and creating content. The trend is also a boon to regional networks such as Fox Sports Net because they are spared production costs for original programming.
