The Scangas Center for Media and Learning
The Scangas Center for Media and Learning embraces digital production. The Scangas Center uses a Broadcast Pix digital video production system operated by a student crew consisting of a producer, director, anchor, cameramen, engineer, lighting and sound engineers, etc. The crew also have a standard array of input technologies at their disposal including MiniDV, VHS, HD remote inputs and other digitally stored media. This studio has the compatibly of recording productions for later release, producing live events to the campus and/or outputting programming to the Internet for world-wide viewing. The Scangas Center for Media and Learning is also the home of Endicott College Television (ECTV). Students have full control of broadcast content and learn all aspects of TV production by creating their own productions.
Additionally, the Scangas Center for Media and Learning is a resource center for students, faculty and staff for the creation of all forms of digital media. It offers the capability of creating and converting instructional content into HD digital formats, including audio, video and graphic content. This content can be created in formats that allow it to be presented as a video or displayed from a computer, posted to the web or made into CD/DVD. Technology training workshops are offered by Scangas Center staff and are open to the entire Endicott Community.
The Scangas Center for Media and Learning was dedicated in October of 1999 through a Davis Grant and the generosity of many donors, most notably Patricia and Pamela Scangas for whom the Center is named. The Center underwent a major upgrade in the summers of 2009 and 2010.
At the core of the Scangas Center is the Broadcast Pix digital production control system and Telvue media storage and distribution server. The system includes a multi screen director's control center, switcher, digital video effects (DVE), audio board, HD cameras, prompters, and controls for a digital character generator (CG), still store, videotape player/record decks, 3 HD studio cameras. Also located in the Scangas Center is a post production facility that houses several video editing systems, including 6 digital non-linear systems (Apple Final Cut Pro), allowing students to experience industry standard video editing technology. The studio can broadcast live to the campus, or over the web in HD and is the home of ECTV, Endicott's student campus TV station.
