About This Project
Pasadena City College offers a diverse academic experience, and wanted to add a world-class broadcast studio for training broadcast students and teaching over the air. The challenge was to utilize the facility’s current technical furniture and conduit infrastructure in the design, and to give the facility the added purpose of serving as the back-up studio transmitter link for the world-renowned KPCC.
PCC’s radio facility includes 3 separate control rooms, 1 interview space, a recording studio live room, and a server room. This setup enables students to fully simulate a studio link between three different cities; with one control room acting as the master routing control, and the other two as separate cities.
