If you walked through Education Hall this semester, you might have noticed a new look to room 104. NYIT’s Communication Arts department has revamped its television studio’s control room to new state of the art technology. This will not only help Communication Arts students learn the new technology but it also helps give a sense of what it’s like in the real world itself working in professional media.

“Our control room had been updated beautifully and places us squarely into the 21st century,” said Professor Don Fizzinoglia, Chair of Communication Arts. “Furthermore, while there is still much to do, it puts NYIT and the Communication Arts Dept. in a position to move forward on a number of fronts including our web channel Globesville and its requirements regarding global reach, interactivity and the various digital production needed to make us both innovators and solid content producers. Also, every one of our students will be learning on equipment and in a setting that is as close to state of the art as possible.”

The structure of the control room is considerably different. The audio was previously pointed to the back wall of the room but is now in the middle of the room. There are now three flat screens on the left side of the room with equipment in the front ready for use. There will be no more video tapes as everything will be going to digital which shows the advancement of technology.

“With the upgrading of our television studio and control room we have the opportunity for students to incorporate high definition video and numerous digital video effects into their productions,” said Dr. Anthony Piazza, Associate Professor of Communication Arts. “The control room equipment can meet any requirements for video production from level 1 to level 5 and of course, Globesville’s need for its international reach. We look forward to assisting the students in utilizing this equipment upgrade.”

“I think the new control room is fantastic,” said freshman Andrew Hanc. “It’s a major upgrade from when I visited last spring and it will definitely help us and future students get more familiar with what is being used in control rooms at major networks.”

“As a freshman transfer student coming in and seeing the control room for the first time was incredible,” said freshmen Jesse Gottfried. “I was surprised that we would be starting on such advanced equipment as beginners. It made me really want to make sure I was paying attention and didn’t miss anything because it’s such a great opportunity to have professional equipment to use.”

After years of having the same control room, the question is why now?

“I think NYIT and specifically our Dean, Dr. Roger Yu, have seen the many changes taking place in industry communications and media production, and how these changes are accelerating every day,” said Professor Fizzinoglia. “Our new control room represents a leap forward in support of Globesville and the new media endeavors that the Communication Arts department has initiated to set us apart from other universities. Keep in mind, we’re committed to have our students “learning by doing” and hands on in this setting address that perfectly.”

The control room is not only open to Communication Art students but it is open to anybody that wants to check it out. One required class for Communication Art students is TEVE 101 taught by Dr. Piazza. With the new control room, it has created more of an opportunity for students to learn more hands on than what they would receive at other colleges.
