Producers - No New Programming for Broadcast the Weeks of March 20 and March 27

Printer-friendly version

Producers, 

This is a reminder that we will be installing a new HD broadcast server during the weeks of March 20 and March 27.  As a result, we will be repeating the entire week of programming that happens between March 13 and March 19 during each of those weeks.  

We apologize for the inconvenience.  

 

The City of Seattle provided Seattle Community Media with $51,000 toward new production gear purchases.  We thank the City for their generosity.  And as a result, there are some great new upgrades happening to the station.  

1) NEW BROADCAST SERVER:  We have purchased a new HD broadcast server for the channel.  The SCM broadcast has been served from an SCCtv server that has done a decent job, but is long overdue for replacement.  While the channel won't be broadcast in HD yet, the new server will be state-of-the-art.  We plan on installing the new server and other broadcast equipment during the final two weeks of March.  

THE IMPORTANT INFO:  Due to this installation, we will be repeating the entire week of programming that shows between 12:01am Sunday, March 13, 2016 through midnight, Saturday, March 19th, 2016, during the weeks of March 20th and March 27th.  No new programming submitted during this time will broadcast during those two weeks.  New programs will appear on the website though.  We are suggesting to producers that they mention the repeats occurring during their shows that appear the week of March 13.  You can even mention that new programs will be appear on the web during this time should you choose to do so.
