Sounds pretty neat
The last time I got to work with cool electronics was at my last teaching assignment in Houston. Someone had donated an audio mixer, digital mixer, recorder, and a couple of video cameras with tripods to the school.
Our computer teacher used this hardware to revive the use of the clunky old televisions that hung overhead in the corner of each classroom.
Fifth grade honor students auditioned to become anchors. Other students became technicians. We used the hardware to create an in-house closed circuit TV studio.
Since we shared the computer teacher with another campus, I was drafted as the co-producer. I was excused from all morning duty and was always present in the studio for morning announcements. From time to time, a substitute would appear in my classroom and I would be summoned to the studio to film the production of a class performance or to air the principal for a special announcement.
It was all quite interesting - especially after I learned how to use the digital mixer and could train the student technicians to choose a different type of fade out when switching from camera one to camera two.
The school administrator didn't like using a mike, so she bought a wireless mike that clipped onto her lapel.
One morning, following morning announcements, she forgot to turn off the mike and remove it from her clothing. As she left the classroom studio, a student careened down the hallway and ran headlong into the principal. The administrator berated the student ... live ... on the schoolwide network.
I ran into the hallway and made quick cutting motions with my hands. When the administrator snarled at me for interrupting, I whispered, "live mike" and pointed at her lapel.
I've never seen a person's face undergo so many interesting colors ...
