About PCTV


Palomar College’s Educational Television program began offering college courses in 1975. The first telecourse produced was a two-unit Art seminar entitled Romance of Clay. The PCTV studio was significantly remodeled in 1995, yielding a “state of the art” production facility designed to meet the needs of the growing program.

The last decade has seen an increase in the use of the studio by RTV faculty and students. Advanced RTV classes produce North County News, Prep Sports Live, and Prime Time Palomar from our PCTV facility. These programs are the backbone of the RTV curriculum.

Production Capabilities:

The PCTV facility is regarded as one of the finest community college television studios in the nation. The studio is 45'x46' and capable of hosting multiple dedicated set areas. The set pieces were produced by Broadcast Design International, one of the premiere set design companies in the world. A wide assortment of lighting instruments are hung from the studio's 15 ft. light grid. Cable television, satellite, online streaming, DVD authoring, and podcasts are all available for content distribution. The facility recently received a state of the art HD upgrade and will continue to receive imporvements in the coming years.
