BIN to Televise Fine Arts Events
September 1, 2011
The Bison Information Network (BIN) has announced it will televise nine NDSU Division of Fine Arts events during the academic year.
The NDSU student television organization will use its new $36,000 broadcast remote system to televise five events during the fall semester and four more in the spring semester. All Fine Arts events will be seen on a tape delay basis on BIN's on-campus channel SU TV Channel 84.
Among the televised fall events are the Oct. 21 theatre production of "The Wild Party" and the Dec. 11 Messiah concert. The spring semester will include telecasts of the Feb. 11 Jazz Festival and NDSU Opera Theatre's production of Mikado on May 4.
John Miller, NDSU Division of Fine Arts director, said, "What a great initiative, and an opportunity for campus cooperation. We're delighted to work with the BIN on this project."
Andrew Young, BIN general manager, said, "The BIN has taken the next big step to offering real experience to students at NDSU in the television field with this remote system. I'm excited to see the system implemented and students gaining real and hands-on experience. Our remote system is opening many doors of opportunity for BIN and the university."
