Changes at NewTV

Written by NewTV Staff


NewTV is always changing and evolving to keep up with new technology. We want our members to learn to use the most up-to-date equipment and software. Whether our staff members have been here only a year or they are seasoned veterans, everyone has witnessed a lot of upgrades during their time here. They took the time to reflect on the biggest changes during their tenure.


Changes2Shelly Kamanitz, Director of Marketing and Creative Services: The biggest changes are the expansion of the facility and addition of the screening room, training center and new studio space. NewTV has grown significantly since I started here and it’s exciting to see the new changes.


Steve Russo, Director of Operations: The death of videotape. It happened in 2009. Click here for an interesting article that talks about this transition to tapeless recording media. 


Jessica Leff, Digital Marketing Specialist: I’d say there are two things. First, there has been an increase in the number of member-produced shows. Second, podcasting was introduced as a new option for members to express themselves.


Cheryl Uttaro, Office Manager: The expansion of the facility.


Jenn Adams, News Director: The biggest change I've seen over the 17 years I've been at NewTV has been technology.  When I first started we were recording on tape. So that meant dumping footage IN REAL TIME into our computers to edit using non-linear software. So, if we covered an entire event that lasted two hours, we'd have to wait two hours for the footage to transfer before we could start editing. This all changed once cameras were equipped to use SD cards. Instead of waiting for a real-time transfer of footage, we had only to wait 5-10 minutes. What a game changer and time save this transition has been. 


Noreen Moross, Director of Production Services: Not so much a change just an observation. Devoted, nice to be around people, doing great work. And cake.


Changes1Andrew Eldridge, Creative Director: The biggest change I’ve seen here at NewTV has been the transformation in the equipment and facility over the years. When I first started, there were two standard definition control rooms, which have been upgraded to HD. We’ve expanded to build a theatre, training facility, and a sound stage as well. The cameras have gotten significantly better, and there seems to be a lot more producers making high-quality programs here at NewTV.
