An Analysis of Our Cable Distribution System: Its Current and Future Capabilities.
Clarke, Tobin de Leon
Three goals have been set for San Joaquin Delta College Learning Resource Center's cable distribution system: it is to be made useable, useful, and flexible. Presently the system consists of a microwave dish installed on one building which points to a relay station with approximately one and one half miles of cable pulled to various locations. A limited number of classroom drops are now capable of receiving a telecast on the system; however, none of the programs available for showing are suitable for use with the student body. In order to accomplish its goals for the cable system, the Learning Resource Center has established nine objectives: (1) install an antenna, switchers, mixers, and other necessary equipment to bring in commercial and public broadcasting stations; (2) connect the library to the cable system; (3) establish a center for scheduling, recording, storing, and distributing videotapes and 16mm films for closed circuit distribution; (4) provide closed circuit distribution capability for videotaped programs; (5) establish a videotape and 16mm film library; (6) connect an adequate number of classrooms to the cable system; (7) install receiver/monitors in each classroom selected for hookup; (8) provide adequate maintenance of the whole system; and (9) provide the capability for eventual two-way transmission.
