Channel 14 - Serving Norwich, Bozrah, Colchester, Franklin, Lisbon, Preston & Sprague, CT.
Channel 14 reaches the towns of Norwich, Bozrah, Colchester, Franklin,
Lisbon, Preston and Sprague. Over 40 hours of local porgramming is cablecast each week Monday through Sunday.
Public Access provides an opportunity for local residents to express their opinions, views and ideas through non-commercial television programs which they produce themselves at no cost using Comcast Cable facilities.
Once trained, area residents may use the Public Access facility to produce programming which will appear on Channel 14. The facility includes a full service video production studio with three Cameras, Audio Console, an all in one computer based system for Video Switching and Character Generation and a Remote Editing Console. Four separate remote video production packages are available for shooting on location. A separate Non-Linear Editing Suite is available for editing as well as another Suite for videotape editing.
Training is provided on an individual basis to meet the goals of a specific program or project. It is the Producer of the project who is directly responsible for organizing and scheduling the training sessions with the Public Access Coordinator.
Of course, if a member of the community wishes to produce a program themselves outside the Comcast Cable facility, or has access to a non-commercial, pre-produced program, they are welcome to apply to the Public Access channel for a time slot. We can accommodate playback of DVD-R video formats based upon availability. Outside programs will be considered for transmission based on the requirements set down in the Public Access Operating Policies.
