The Santa Barbara Channels moved into a great new location across Hollister from the Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta in May of this year. The building had previously been used as a television studio, most recently by Univision. The Santa Barbara Channels made some substantial improvements, created a second smaller studio, and upgraded equipment including HiDef PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) remotely operated cameras, DMX (Digital Multiplex) LED lighting, a Jony Jib Pro12, and four G5 edit bays running Final Cut Studio.
Come see one of the finest and newest community media centers in the nation, a place members of our community already produce more than 30 different studio programs, a media center that has won two dozen national and regional awards for content in the past five years. Find out how you can be involved, see firsthand how television is created, or talk to the staff about how this award-winning center can help you meet your organization’s media needs.
