About the Library: About the TV Center

Brooklyn College's TV Center was built during the Golden Age of Television. Launched in 1964, the TV Center was one of the first college-based, fully professional television production facilities in the country. In conjunction with the Department of Television, Radio & Emerging Media, classes at the center have been continuously running since its opening.

Today the center continues to serve as a full production facility, providing field equipment loans (Library, 2nd floor New Media Center), a fully equipped Multi-Camera Studio (Studio B) and Post-production Lab (Rm 038 Library) offering students high-end computer workstations with all the necessary hardware and software to edit and create work across a variety of video and audio programs., and other supporting services to students enrolled in production courses.

With a footprint of 2,200 square feet, Studio B remains the heart of the facility. The studio is equipped with a 14-foot lighting grid, ETC lighting control/dimming system for more than 100 instruments as well as full black travelers, two projection cycs, and a green screen for special effects. Productions are able to stream live or record to our server or portable drives. Jibs, dollies, camera stabilizers, and sliders can all be employed to enhance production along with scenic and lighting.

The TV Center is located in the basement of Whitehead Hall and includes Operations and Production Offices (018), Studio B and MCR (007), Engineering (008).
