Sony buoys USC station, studio

The USC School of Cinema-Television has raised the curtain on the campus’s new TV production center and student-run TV station.

The facility houses three multi-camera studios, dubbing and post-production rooms, and nearly $2.5 million worth of camera and editing equipment, much of it donated by Sony.

Sony’s commitment

“This gift symbolizes Sony’s commitment to the twin pillars of our future — education and entertainment,” said Jeff Sagansky, co-president of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The campus’s TV station Trojan Vision began nightly broadcasts of original programming last month. Elizabeth Daley, dean of the School of Cinema-Television, said the station and production equipment will give TV and journalism majors invaluable experience in producing programs and running a TV station.

The opening of the production center coincides with the recent gift from TV producers Paul Junger Witt and Susan Harris (“Blossom,” “Soap”) to fund a graduate-level course in the development and production of sitcoms.
