SCATV went LIVE from ArtBeat in Davis Square on Saturday, July 19 from noon to 1:30pm. This was the first time SCATV was able to go live from outside the studio, and we hope to do this many times in the future. It was possible because of some new SCATV technology, a Tricaster switcher and cell phone streaming ability. We streamed to our studio via Livestream, and then routed the stream to the cable channel. Easy as pie!
Miguel Rivas, SCATV Operations Manager, was the mastermind and director of the production. Greater Somerville hosts KyAnn Anderson and Joe Lynch were the excellent show hosts who did lots of lively interviews of festival attendees. The crew were Wendy Blom, Hans Elmidor, Erica Jones, Bryan McKeon, Henry Parker, Ricardo Pineda, and Vaughn Simkins. The program will be shown again on Channel 3.
Many thanks to the Somerville Arts Council for giving SCATV the space for the remote studio, and for producing such an awesome festival.
