DCTV is a part of Davis Media Access.

Public Access Television

Founded in 1988, Davis Community Television and KDRT are part of Davis Media Access. Davis Community Television (Comcast Cable Channel 15) plays shows produced by local citizens. Anybody who lives, works, or volunteers with a Davis organization can submit programming to air on the channel. DCTV also offers training to volunteers that want to learn how to make videos, films, tv shows, etc. and even a public conference room for media groups looking for a meeting spot. Training is offered in the form of project-based learning, where volunteers are assigned to work on specific projects or productions.

DCTV volunteers have access to Canon GL-2, XL-2's and Mac based editing suites for volunteer and staff-facilitated production. DCTV also manages a TV production studio- complete with JVC studio cameras, intercoms, green screen, and a control room with switching, graphics, audio, patch bays, and so forth. DCTV is one part of the growing commitment of Davis Media Access to assist the public in accessing all forms of media.

Jeff Shaw, the internship coordinator is really awesome and was one of the guiding forces behind KDRT, the new low power community radio station. - J.C.
