Wireless Mics for Student Media
Any student who has an interest in broadcast journalism, television production, or film, regardless of major, can get involved in Eagle Eye TV -- Auburn's student-run television station.
Our goal is to raise $6,000 to purchase IFB's and wireless mics, allowing students to use the same technology that is used in the business, thus creating a more beneficial learning lab for students.
Wireless mics would remove wires that cover our floors from the studio, solving a major safety concern. An IFB is a special intercom circuit that sends a feed to an earpiece worn by talent which can be interrupted and replaced by a television producer's or director's intercom microphone.
Other schools offer this technology and it is essential for Auburn students to have this same opportunity. Eagle Eye TV produces a variety of content from students, including news, sports, and entertainment shows. We broadcast 24/7 on campus cable and online.
Our Tiger Giving Day goal will help us move to our larger goal of a $10,000 revamp of our studio.
We will purchase the new equipment after Tiger Giving Day, allowing students to immediately be immersed in learning.
