55,255

That's the number of Public Access Archive views/downloads over its first 22 months -- a testament to the growing on-line and on-demand audience for your studio and field-produced local content!

We'll be celebrating that and more at tonight Quarterly Studio Producers Meeting, which we always hold on the first Wednesday of the month prior to the new quarter. Starting at 7 o'clock sharp and lasting no more than an hour, we'll cover the waterfront of recent developments at RVTV and we'll be running the now-traditional lottery draft picks to divy up the studio production timeslots for Winter Quarter 2015 (January, February & March).

Only studio-certified producers are eligible to bid for studio time, though all are welcome to attend. Those present will get the first crack at a draft Community Access Policy which has been under review by the RVTV Public Access Advisory Board for the better part of a year now -- we're taking your comments for the next 30 days to see what you think of our attempt to tie together the various documents pertaining to RVTV and public use of the DMC into one coherent format.

UPCOMING SCHEDULE NOTES


Our normal weekly equipment checkout time is on Wednesday between 3:30-6:30 p.m. Producers are highly encouraged to reserve the equipment they need IN ADVANCE. To do so, please e-mail Charles Douglas at douglasc@sou.edu or call (541) 552-6898. Please turn in equipment during this time and notify us in advance of any time conflicts – do NOT leave equipment at the front desk, the back counter, or with anyone other than Charles or Brandon.

Studio Production Times
for Fall Quarter 2014


REMINDER: All cancellations must be made with 7 (seven) days notice, at the peril of losing all production timeslots for this quarter and the next. Yes, we really mean it -- no exceptions aside from documented death in the family, serious illness or other actual emergency. A guest cancellation is not a valid reason -- have a Plan B in place! Cancellations must be made in e-mail format and followed up for confirmation with RVTV staff.

STUDIO TIMESLOT CANCELLATION NOTICE


As a result of cancellations in studio production timeslots (which were provided with at least one week of notice), the following times are available for use in the RVTV Studio:

Friday, Dec. 5th - 5-8pm
Saturday, Dec. 6th - Noon-3pm

Any studio-certified producer is eligible to bid for this production timeslot, first come, first served. We only ask that you follow through on producing your program if you reserve this time!

Drop Charles a line at douglasc@sou.edu if you're interested.

A REMINDER ON PROGRAMMING SUBMISSION HOURS


Due to staffing issues at the DMC, we are asking producers to submit their field productions, promos and any other programs to Brandon or Charles during these particular hours:

Tuesdays 3:30-5:30pm
Wednesdays 3:30-6:30pm
Fridays 5-8pm
Saturdays 9am-6pm


This also applies to “walk-in consultations” – while we want to be open to inquires at all hours, the realities of limited staffing hours and increased operational demands make this a regrettable, but necessary request. If at all possible, make it a habit to call or preferably e-mail in advance to make an appointment. This will hopefully make for more efficient and successful outcomes for all concerned.

Please note that these program submission hours do not apply to any special appointments you’ve set up with RVTV staff – another incentive for pre-planned meetings – and your reservations to use the Public Access Edit Lab can be accomplished during any time of day that the lights are on at the DMC.

SUBMIT PROGRAMS DIGITALLY!


Save money save the environment! Quit using plastic DVDs and get a re-usable thumbdrive to give us your program. You won’t have to pay for submitting local programs (a charge still applied on imports) and we’ll off-load your programs while you wait. It’s good for the Earth and good for your pocketbook, as well as saving RVTV staff a significant amount of time spent ripping DVDs.

SD CARDS & DV TAPES NOTICE


Due to budgetary issues (which are beyond our immediate control), RVTV must announce with immediate effect that we will not supply either SD cards for our Panasonic HD cameras or mini-DV tapes for our Canon Vixia HD cameras & our other standard definition cameras.

SD Cards are available at the SOU Bookstore as well as at many reputable vendors in local storefronts as well as at Internet-based outlets. Tapes are not available at the Bookstore but are also available at a variety of brick-and-mortar and virtual stores.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes…but on the bright side, this means you can retain your own recording media for future use!
