Indiana University Communications regularly accommodates media requests for live, on-camera faculty interviews by using a small fiber optic studio located in the Bloomington office. Production line and IFB phone numbers are supplied to broadcasters. Also provided at no cost is a signal from the studio, through WTIU-TV, into WFYI-TV (PBS) or any of the major network news television affiliates in Indianapolis. The requesting broadcasters are responsible for arranging for satellite or VYVEX transmittal of the signal from Indianapolis into their own facilities. Although the studio camera is high definition, the fiber link with Indianapolis is currently standard definition. Engineers can provide aspect ratios of 9:16 or 4:3.
To arrange a studio interview, contact Tracy James at 812-855-0084 and firstname.lastname@example.org, or George Vlahakis at 812-855-0846 and email@example.com.
