Last week I traveled with GreyComm Studios to Atlanta for the College Boardcasters conference: CBI (www.askcbi.com). The conference was a great experience, full of informative presentations and insightful discussion. I also had the thrilling opportunity to speak at one of the presentations entitled "Only in Adobe Premiere" in which Jay Dunmore and I illustrated some of the unique features in the Adobe Creative Suite that those looking to move away from Avid or Final Cut might want to consider.
The ability for a college organization to place content on the same medium, the same scale as major production houses is a remarkable opportunity; one that can't be missed
Interacting with other college stations, hearing about their successes and woes incited both envy and contendedness. Most importantly, I saw that GreyComm Studios is taking "campus television" -
I contend that we are far beyond a traditional campus television station at this point
- in the right direction, beyond the set itself. While many colleges I spoke with at the conference seemed to view web content as "side project," we believe it's of equal, if not greater, importance than cable broadcast. Our web content viewed all over the world, far beyond the few residing in the dorms of Loyola Maryland University. The ability for a college organization to place content on the same medium, the same scale as major production houses is a remarkable opportunity; one that can't be missed.
