Suggestions and Guidelines for Development of Television Facilities in Schools for the Deaf.
Goforth, E. Jack
The various combinations of television equipment suitable for use in deaf education are described in terms of the systems used. The classroom system would consist of two cameras, a videotape recorder, a special effects generator for captioning, and a monitor of sufficient size for classroom viewing. The campus system would have the same capabilities but would be of broadcast quality, requiring a full time manager. The regional system would necessitate establishment of a regional captioning center as an interim project, to be manned by professional staff which would create needed program packages and engage in research and design of software. The national system would provide for electronic captioning for open circuit television. For all the above systems, technical aspects are considered, and operating equipment costs are estimated. Staff requirements are specified for campus and regional systems, and equipment layouts are provided for all but the national system. (JD)
