VESTAL (WBNG) — A brand new communications studio at Binghamton University is allowing its staff to better communicate on a national level.
Their state of the art live broadcast studio on campus will allow their world class staff to share their expertise with news organizations around the world.
Staff can live stream to major organizations using a high tech camera and teleprompter system.
Before this development, staff would have to travel to nearby studios at other universities, or use the limited technology available.
“Binghamton faculty do a lot of interesting things, and they just do a lot of compelling research, and have a lot of expertise in a lot of different subjects,” says Ryan Yarosh, B.U.’s Communications Director. “This studio will enable them to communicate those different messages and help them get that expertise out there beyond Binghamton, really throughout the whole world, which is fantastic.”
The studio will also be used for taking photos and shooting videos for promotional purposes.
After just being unveiled last week, it’s already been used to film a conversation between the university’s president and nobel prize winning B.U. Professor Stan Whittingham.
It was all thanks to a donation made by class of ’76 alumni Roger Mills Gilbert.
