“Experience Empowering Excellence”

Boca Ciega High School

The use of a broadcast studio in the high school setting is a way to actively involve students in the learning process. It allows students to develop technical, organizational and communication skills throughout their experience. When Boca Ciega High School contacted Encore they were getting a brand new building and wanted Encore to design a system to fit their needs and budget. They chose Encore due to our ability to design, integrate and service their facility.

Encore Broadcast Solutions introduced the NewTek TriCaster TCXD850 rack-mounted production system to Pinellas County Schools to take their ability to both stream and record a live production to the next level as they stepped into the digital future. We used three Panasonic AG-HPX170 cameras with Prompter People FLEX 17 teleprompters supported by Manfrotto heavy duty tripods. Six Shure lavalier wired microphones and condenser lapel microphones were used with a 50 ft. stage box, 16 channel audio snake from RapcoHorizon. Encore also incorporated a Mackie 1604 audio mixer. To complement the design two full PrimeTime Lighting KW2 systems were installed.

When you contract with Encore you will quickly realize our expertise in broadcast studio design and we’ll take you above and beyond the average school studio system. Boca Ciega High School utilized a full system training session from Encore and later ordered three field packages for this studio including cameras, microphones, tripods and SD cards for their ENG (Electronic News Gathering).   The students now have the technology to enrich, reinforce and accomplish their goals of sharing their productions and learning how to be a Broadcast Professional.
