Texas High School adds P2 HD camcorders, HD switcher, projectors
Texas High School in Texarkana, TX, recently opened the Sullivan Performing Arts Center and John Thomas Theatre, which feature three Panasonic AG-HPX300 P2 HD camcorders outfitted for studio use, an AV-HS400A HD/SD switcher and two PT-DW10000U 10000lm 1080p DLP projectors.
In addition to jazz, drama and choir performances, the new theater will present the work of many of the high school’s 220 broadcast journalist students. The students shoot their projects on Panasonic AG-HMC150 professional handheld AVCCAM camcorders.
The broadcast program, named TigerVision in honor of the school mascot, began in 1989 as an elective class for students to learn video production. Since then, TigerVision has grown into an award-winning program creating content that airs on four channels, including three Cable ONE channels and one on-campus, closed-circuit channel.
