By the end of September, Wellesley will have 6 high-definition robotic TV studios up and running in various buildings across town. The studios are part of a multi-year plan to provide quality video coverage of government meetings and other important events in Wellesley using minimal human resources. Wellesley Public Media developed this plan in cooperation with town officials. One person will operate all of the equipment in each studio – which includes 4 robotic high-definition cameras, multiple wireless microphones and integration of laptop presentations into the cablecasts.
The studios are located in the following locations:
*Juliani Room at Town Hall
*Great Hall at Town Hall
*Wakelin Room at the main library
*Kingsbury Room at the Police Station
*Multi-Media room at the Tolles Parsons Center
*Room 08 in the Warren Building
Wellesley Public Media executive director James Joyce expects demand for meeting coverage in Wellesley to increase once the studios are complete and is seeking people to work part-time learning to operate the robotic TV studios and assist with increased demand for coverage.
“It’s a great opportunity for someone looking to pick up some extra cash working part-time in the evening,” he says. “If you are a quick learner and enjoy multi-tasking then you will do well.”
