TV Studio (Media Lab) at School

Your school will have your own TV Studio with trained staff.

Every school has large budget for developing its infrastructure and resource centres. Today every school has Chemistry / Physics Laboratories, Computer Labs, Home Science Labs, Huge Libraries with thousands of books, indoors and out door sports facilities, workshops for project making and many more. But very few schools in Delhi NCR have their own TV Studio. The possible reasons behind it are…………..

  • This is not a requirement of CBSE regulatory body.
  • Management thinks it is expensive to have TV Studio.
  • General understanding is that TV Studio may cost crores of rupees and there is no R.O.I. (Return on Investment).
  • Who will look after all those electronic equipments?
  • School has no trained staff to handle cameras and perform video editing.

First let me clear this misconception –

  • Most of the school in Europe and U. S. have their own TV Studios. The Arabic schools in Kuwait, Bahrain and Dubai also have their own TV Studios and they prepare their own educational programmes in Arabic language. They also do dubbing in Arabic to original English programmes.
  • TV Studio in schools in India will give modern look and students will benefit out of their ‘Educational Promotion through Visual Communication’.
  • Investment to make own TV Studio will start from just Rs. 300,000/- (Three Lakhs).  True Vision Media has proposals for TV Studios of different size and shape.
