Help NCTV17 broadcast Naperville in HD!
For a television station, the studio is its foundation. At NCTV17, our studio at 127 Ambassador Drive is the heart of our operation and the place where we welcome the community to join us on many of our studio-based programs including Live Election Coverage, Spotlight, Business Connection, Inside the Chamber, Career Center, and the anchor portions of our weekly news and sports programming.
As the world moves forward and enjoys the picture quality of HD so must NCTV17. As a not-for-profit, we are ever-mindful of stretching our limited financial resources, but after 15+ years, our four standard definition (SD) studio cameras are on their last legs and need to be replaced by current high definition (HD) technology.
We have been diligent and good stewards of our dollars, so over the past couple of years we’ve carefully planned and put into place the other key components necessary to make the transition to a fully HD studio, such as a digital control room and new lighting grid.
As we enter our 30th Anniversary year, we are going to launch our first capital campaign to help purchase four HD studio cameras and the necessary support technology to move NCTV17 from SD to HD. In fact, we have already raised 60% of the necessary funds. Our goal is to raise the remaining $30,000 so we can purchase and install this new technology by late spring 2017.
If you value the role NCTV17 plays within Naperville as your local community television station, we hope you will consider helping us kick-off this campaign by making a contribution to our #HighDefinition campaign. Perhaps your employer has a matching gift program so the impact of your gift can be increased.
