Buffalo State College, State University of New York (SUNY), recently upgraded its broadcast studio facilities with three new Hitachi SK-3020P HDTV studio cameras.
Buffalo State’s Instructional Resources TV department is using the new cameras to produce multicamera instructional, administrative and community relations-related programs. The cameras were first put to use during the fall 2007 semester.
The cameras came equipped with Canon HD lenses, 8in viewfinders and four returns that enable the cameraman to toggle a switch to see other HD/SD signals in the viewfinder, such as the teleprompter or a split screen, in addition to what is captured by the camera. The camera returns carry select production signals from the switcher to the cameras, providing the operators with information on how to compose their shots.
