Austin, TX – channelAustin is set to unveil its $1 million technological transformation and cutting edge opportunities for digital media production and distribution.

On Saturday, October 10, 2009 city leaders will help relaunch Austin’s own community television studios as a fully operational high definition digital media center poised to meet the expanded needs of Austin’s creative community.

The October event – aptly dubbed the digital fusion fest – will feature an afternoon of activities ranging from live music to blue screen fantasies for kids, all designed to awe our community and to showcase transformed studios and equipment.

“channelAustin is poised to become the place for digital media training, production, and distribution in Central Texas,” said Dr. Scott D. Roberts, a professor in Digital Media Business Management at St. Edwards University and channelAustin Board member.

Every Austin resident now has the opportunity to shoot with cutting-edge HDV digital cameras and edit on Apple’s industry standard Final Cut Pro software, or produce live television shows in an HD environment on par with or better than most in Central Texas.

The digital fusion fest, a celebration of this new direction, promises to be a dynamic community oriented event, with live music and spoken word, kids activities, studio tours, and health screenings, as well as participation from numerous non-profits, the fire fighters association and local area businesses.

The digital fusion fest takes place on:

Saturday | October 10, 2009| 2:00 to 5:30 PM | 1143 Northwestern Avenue Austin 78702

channelAustin is a non-profit 501(c3), contracted with the City to manage the digital community media center and television studios located in East Austin.
