IdahoPTV awarded emergency grant to replace video switcher

October 25 2004 by Peter Morrill

In September, we received written notification from the United States Department of Commerce, Public Telecommunications Facilities Program (PTFP), that IdahoPTV has been awarded an emergency grant of $158,745 to help us replace the production video switcher in Boise.

In late June, IdahoPTV's thirty-two year old Grass Valley 1600 ceased operation as a result of repeated power fluctuations caused by adverse local weather. Since then, we've been actively searching for funding that would allow us to replace this key piece of production equipment. The video switcher enables us to produce DIALOGUE, DIALOGUE FOR KIDS, THE IDAHO DEBATES, IDAHO REPORTS and other local, studio based programs.
