Television and Radio Interview Facilities (Vyvx Studio)

In addition to serving as the University Communications photo studio, the Media Studio in WWH offers live and remote recording of interviews by news media outlets.

VYVX: Remote connection for TV interviews.

ISDN: Remote connection for radio interviews with up to two people.

Under normal circumstances, the Digial Content Group (DCG) in coordination with Media Relations will check availability of the studio and either book the studio or recommend an alternative. The DCG videographer will coordinate technical setup with media. However, at this time the Vyvx service is not available due to a staff vacancy in the DCG.

Media reps should alert Gary Susswein in Media Relations about planned interviews, then contact one of the following local studios to schedule the remote transmission. Be certain to provide the following information:

  • Date and time
  • Contact info for media outlet
  • Interviewee's name
