Video equipment and signout

Students in the Robertson School journalism sequence (in the print-online and broadcast concentrations) use professional-quality video and audio equipment, including Sony PMW-510 and Sony EX1-R HD cameras, Adobe Premiere Pro video editing and Adobe Audition audio editing software; and microphones including the Sennheiser EW100-ENG G3 wireless.

Our TV studio is powered by a NewTek Tricaster 8000 video switcher and three Sony HXCD70K HD studio cameras.

Students in MASC 465 Newscasting produce VCU InSight for Richmond PBS using new, state-of-the-art professional TV equipment.
