Report on Summer Experimental Television Project. Work Incentive Program, July 1 to August 31, 1969.
Shult, Robert J.
The summer television project was instituted to provide a period of exploration and experimentation during which the needs of the Wisconsin State Employment Service and the Work Incentive Program were examined. Television was primarily useful for self-evaluation and for demonstration or introduction of new programs. Several types of television equipment were available. A one half inch system cost from $800 to $2,000, whereas a 1-inch system varied in price from $2,000 to $10,000. The one half inch system was light enough to be moved by one person and transported in an automobile. The larger system weighed at least 200 pounds and required a panel truck for transport. The major advantage of the larger system was its superior picture producing capability. The project must still solve the problems of: (1) which areas can effectively use television, (2) necessary levels of equipment, and (3) administration and control of television activity. (BC)
