SAN DIEGO — Aug. 4, 2009 — Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic today announced that it has provided consulting and integration services for the new Centro de Comunicación Audiovisual y Multimedia (Center for Audiovisual Communication and Multimedia, or CECAM) at Mexico's Universidad Iberoamericana (UIA Tijuana) in Playas de Tijuana, Baja California. The studio and post-production facility serves as a teaching and training tool for UIA Tijuana film and television production students and supports their creation of news programs, talk shows, and other broadcast content.
"Our goal is to foster a space in which students can create multimedia projects using cutting-edge tools and equipment, and TV Magic's expertise helped us make this idea a reality," said Marta Marquez, manager of the Communications Department at UIA Tijuana. "TV Magic understood our needs and provided insight into the best solutions for the CECAM. Furthermore, the company's training and support of newly hired staff has been critical to our ability to provide students with education that prepares them for the professional broadcast market."
The CECAM was created to support students through training, as well as the analysis, creation, and dissemination of media projects that encourage the exchange of new ideas both within and beyond the university community. The systems incorporated into the CECAM by TV Magic include six Canon SD cameras, a Broadcast Pix switcher, four Apple® workstations, ARRI and Kino Flo lighting, Sony and JVC VTRs, and a Yamaha audio mixer.
Integrated to support production from end to end, the new systems within the CECAM simplify production for UIA Tijuana students and provide a solid foundation for later work in broadcast stations and other media organizations. Among the programs created at the CECAM is "Caldero TV," which has been produced by UIA Tijuana students for more than a decade and is distributed on cable channel 21 for Sintesis TV in Baja California, Tijuana, Ensenada, and Mexicali.
