ECTV announced new programs and opportunities at internal event; public open house tours scheduled


Everett Community Television (ECTV) hosted an internal unveiling of the redesigned studio at Everett City Hall to demonstrate everything that the public access station has to offer to the community and City of Everett departments. Over the past few years, ECTV has been upgrading the station’s infrastructure with new equipment, such as cameras, switchboards and network capabilities that the public can utilize. Recently, the station has acquired new furniture and redesigned the stage and set to give the studio a more modern look and feel.

ECTV Technical Producer Akinyele Staples hosted the internal event to inform City departments about the opportunities that are available and how to best utilize the studio to get important messages out to the community. Attendees were able to learn how and when to consider ECTV for marketing strategies, how to keep the community informed through broadcast media and how to set up and install video and audio through a crash course.

“This renovation is integral to developing and maintaining interest in visual media,” said Staples. “ECTV Studio 3B is now prepped to become a viable space to learn and create.”

The event also featured light refreshments and a performance by Jazz and R&B duo Big Redd’s House. The new learning opportunities and studio redesign are part of the City and the station’s commitment to improving public access for the community.

“The redesigned studio and new programs and equipment are an effort to reinvigorate public access in our community,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “It’s important for residents to know that ECTV is here for you to utilize and help bring your video and TV show ideas to life.”

ECTV was set to begin hosting pop in tours that are open to the public on January 18 at ECTV Studio 3B, which is located at Everett City Hall (484 Broadway) on the Lower Level. There is a public walk-in from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.  on Thursday, Jan. 25. The public is also invited to schedule tours of the studio by scheduling an appointment at ectv.simplybook.me.
