The Columbus Video Access Center: A Research Analysis of Public Reaction.
Ksobiech, Kenneth J.; And Others
In cooperation with the Indiana University Department of Telecommunications, the Video Access Center (VAC) in Columbus, Indiana has undertaken a two phase evaluation of its activities. The first phase, done in 1974, was designed to (1) compare VAC to other public access centers throughout the country, (2) determine the size and demographic composition of the VAC audience, and (3) assess the attitudes of Columbus residents toward public access television. A series of recommendations for changes resulted from the initial evaluation. This report describes the second phase of the evaluation and includes (1) descriptive information on the development of the Columbus VAC from February 1974 to February 1975, (2) a quantitative analysis of television viewing by cable subscribers in Columbus, and (3) data, based on 200 telephone interviews, on the reaction of Columbus residents to VAC. Recommendations for future programing and promotional activities are included at the conclusion of the document. (DGC)
