We Visit KCET-TV


The winter weather turned mercifully sunny and a large contingent of Mass Comm 101 students turned out for a tour of the historic KCET television studios.
 
Emily was our tour guide. She told us about the station's history as a movie studio.
After touring the historical part of the studio, Emily took us to a preview of the future--High-Definition Television (HDTV). In the not-too-distant future we will be receiving digital television signals, which will allow interactive television, multiple broadcasts over the same station, higher quality video and audio and other features.

The sample HDTV show we saw was very impressive--terrific picture and sound!
