What's New in the Koop
The university's Jandoli School has been given a network level television sports production truck by Game Creek Video, becoming the only school in the country with such a facility.
Imagine yourself doing play-by-play of Division One college sports on live television for hundreds of thousands of viewers on a TV sports network.
Picture yourself directing or producing a tournament basketball game, providing replays, running a camera or providing audio or graphics for telecasts.
You can be one of the St. Bonaventure JMC students taking a unique course in remote TV production using the university's broadcast facility, a 48-foot, 40-ton unit with 10 cameras and facilities once used for major league sports and the Academy Awards.

You'll learn the way to present journalism on the fly, live sports telecasts of A-10 basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse etc., plus studio shows about sports and public affairs when you enroll in JMC 401E. Your instructor spent 35 years as a big league producer and director, and you'll also learn in workshops from men and women who've won Emmys for their work at CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN.
Currently the course is open to juniors and seniors, but internships for credit are available to sophomores.
The equipment on the truck includes a Grass Valley 3000 switcher, four hard Ikegami cameras with Canon lenses, three hand-held Ikegami cameras, four Sony W75 Beta decks, a Yamaha 3500 audio console, a Chyron Infinit, and an Abekas DVEous.
