Over the Christmas break, under the tutelage of chair Chuck Gloman, TV/film and theatre students Cara Maiatico ’13, Victoria Blair ’15, Nikki Heckerman ‘13, and Rhianna Radick ’13 worked with the JVC Americas Corporation to test a new high definition camera with immediate, wireless transfer capability. This was before the product was officially launched in the United States.
JVC is a leading developer and manufacturer of sophisticated audio and video products. Two of the company’s engineers, Dwayne Kersey and Edgar Shane, worked with the students to create an instructional video on the use of the equipment.
The video shows how to shoot with the camera and then how to send a video package anywhere on earth, wirelessly, via a 4G connection. "We shot the video in front of the DeSales University sign outside of Billera Hall and the footage was sent, wirelessly, without satellite or microwave technology, to the JVC website in Japan," said Gloman. "Our students gave up a portion of their holiday break to shoot in the cold because they wanted to be a part of this new technology; to be the first to see and use it."
The instructional video that resulted from the JVC-DeSales collaboration will be placed on the JVC website, thereby garnering international attention to the DeSales TV/Film Department. Gloman stressed how proud he was that "a company like JVC brought this opportunity to DeSales University and not one of the high-profile film schools such as NYU or UCLA."
John Bell, head of the Division of Performing Arts said that, "this is yet another example of Chuck leveraging his professional reputation to attract cutting-edge technology manufacturers to campus to create exciting opportunities to the DeSales University TV/Film students."
