Moon Community Access TV unveils new production trailer

Ed Albert

On Wednesday, Sept. 7, Moon Community Access TV’s brand new high definition production trailer was unveiled at the Moon Township Municipal building. The trailer was collaboration between MCA-TV and Robert Morris University.

Students from RMU-TV have been working with MCA-TV to broadcast live sporting events happening on campus and at the Island Sports Center since 2007.

“We integrate focus applied education that prepares students for leadership in a rapidly changing world,” Dean of School of Communications and Information Systems Barbara Levine stated to the audience in her speech for the dedication of the new production trailer.

“The production trailer is aptly described as a mobile training ground. Our students grow immeasurably from working with professional staff, developing and honing skills while producing a range of sports,” she added.

Robert Morris wanted to give back to alumni Jim Koepfinger, executive director of MCA-TV, for all his work with the students in the Television/Video Production major and all students of RMU-TV.

Students learn with real world experience using the help from Koepfinger and his staff as well as this new high definition production trailer.

Koepfinger was very excited about the new trailer.

“Obviously, the biggest step up in production for this is that it’s a high [definition] production trailer, so we are going to be shooting everything we do in high definition,” he explained. “Besides being a sharper image, it’s also a widescreen format. . . . In sports, that’s a big part of doing sports coverage . . . getting more of the field, more of the action.”

On Labor Day weekend, at the RMU versus Dayton football game, students used the new trailer to put together a live sports production that can be viewed on RMU channel 98 here on campus.

With the new trailer, students and RMU will continue the partnership with MCA-TV to create student produced sporting events at RMU.
