WHBS-TV has many fine pieces of equipment that we use. Listed are some of the equipment.
Ikegami HC-400W Professional Digital Video Camera: We use two of these cameras in our studio for interviews and other in-studio shoots. While this is only a standard definition camera, we broadcast in SD so this is a moot point.
Canon GL1/GL2 Handheld Camcorder: We have a number of these that we use for shoots outside of the studio: Football, assemblies, parades, swimming, soccer, etc. Again, while this is only a standard definition camera, we broadcast in SD so this is again, moot.
Panasonic AG-AC90 AVCCAM HD Camcorder: As WHBS-TV is run by donations and DVD sales, we needed to find a cost-effective solution to progress into HD. While we still cannot broadcast HD, we are starting to put HD content online. We currently have two AG-AC90s that the officers are learning to use and are starting to record select content. We will start to upload our content in the coming weeks.
Technology is always advancing and improving. We are always searching for ways to make our content better in both quality and quantity, as well as make them more accessible. If you would like to help us out by making a donation, please call the station at 440-835-6777 or email Mr. Szekely at Szekely@wlake.org.
