Last year’s MLTV crew gets ready to start morning announcements. This year’s staff hopes to be up and running soon with a new format that allows A building classrooms to use their ViewSonic boards and a private Youtube channel to broadcast the program.

Mountain Lion Television hoped to debut Wednesday, Sept. 11.  Technical difficulties got in the way such as the Youtube link not working because the triCaster would not stream and the sound was coming through way too hot.  They will work on the issues and try again next week.

“We have a lot of great new technology, and we are looking forward to using it.  We switched platforms this year from PC to Macintosh and have a lot of powerful editing programs that we are really looking forward to using,” adviser Douglas Sipes said.

The first showing usually happens earlier in the year, but this year they have all new equipment.  They are trying to relearn a lot of things because everything has changed since last year.
