Educational Access Maintenance in Progress

Edu Channel MaintenanceHingham’s Educational Access Channel is currently unavailable as some upgrades are performed.  As you may have read about back in July HCAM’s Public & Government channels were moved onto a new playback Telvue System still housed in Hingham’s Town Hall.  This same upgrade is now also taking place for the educational channel.  In the past Hingham’s Educational channel has originated from Hingham High School, but programming will now be managed from a more central location in Hingham Town Hall. This will allow for easier maintenance and additional programming from other sources throughout town.   This brief outage is occurring while new cables are being run to provide this new connectivity.  We appreciate your patience during this process and promise an improved experience upon completion.  In the mean time we invite you to tune into HCAM’s public channel (Comcast 97, Verizon 31) for the content you would usually see on the educational channel.  For up-to-date playback times please see our Program Guide.

Our October Member in Action is…

Screen Shot 2014-11-06 at 11.32.59 AMCongratulations to our October Member In Action, Susan Hagstrom. Susan is the host and producer of Point and Shoot, a show about basic photography that features local photographers. HCAM Membership & Outreach Coordinator Cristina Aiello had a chance to chat with Susan and ask her about his experience with HCAM-TV thus far.

Susan began production of Point and Shoot last spring but she took a tour of HCAM in 2013 and thought “it was an amazing resource for anyone interested in learning about media production. A photographer herself, she has always had an interest in tech and media business and has wanted to learn about TV production.

When she was asked about what she enjoys most about being an HCAM member she said, “I love seeing how the bits and pieces get put together to make a final product that is hopefully enjoyed by viewers. I also enjoy learning from the amazing staff there. They are very approachable and helpful.

Susan does not currently have any new projects in the works but she did say that she is hoping to get a stream of new guests and hopefully keep improving the quality of her show.

Susan’s member piece is also featured in our November newsletter which you can read here. If you are not a subscriber to our newsletter but would like to be please enter your email address on the right hand side of the website where it says, “Join our mailing list.”
