Access Equipment & The Means of Production
I want to produce my own TV show--to air on Channel 17 and stream on my website! Where do I get equipment?
Good News! Channel 17/ Town Meeting TV is a government access TV channel that's open to everyone! You can borrow the video equipment that you need to make your show and air it on Channel 17. We have cameras, tripods, and microphones available for check out by people who live or work in our member communities. Equipment is lent out on a first-come, first-served, basis and we provide one-on-one training once you make an appointment. You can also use our modest digital editing facilities.
When you Reserve Equipment be sure you:
1. Know what you want to record, have an event set up, an interview, or a date that you want to record on.
2. Indicate the exact dates you want to reserve a camera for. (Limit your reservation to as few days around the event as possible.)
3. Specify the equipment you will want to borrow. Tell us the type of the camera you have been trained to use and any other equipment you will need (microphones, lights, etc.)
