PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT/FACILITY REQUESTS – Upon receiving approval of the program proposal, the user may submit a WCTV Production Equipment Request form to reserve equipment or a Facility Request form to reserve facilities. These requests must be submitted in person. No production equipment will be reserved via telephone. Production Equipment/Facility Request forms will be processed by WCTV staff on a daily basis. Users will be notified only if there is a time conflict and equipment or facility is not available.
CANCELLATIONS – In the event a user fails to use the equipment and/or facility reserved without 24-hour notice of cancellation, that user may be prohibited from use of that equipment and/or facility for a period of 30 days. Users showing up 30 minutes late for use of reserved production equipment or facility without notification, relinquish their reservation, which may then be available to other users. Users may also be prohibited from use of that equipment or facility for a period of thirty days. Repeated offenses may result in indefinite suspension, loss of WCTV certification, and necessary legal measures.
DAMAGE OR LOSS – Users will sign the WCTV Equipment/Facility Request form agreeing to be financially responsible for damage or loss of equipment during the period it is reserved in their name. Lost or damaged equipment must be replaced with identical equipment within thirty days. Failure to comply within this time period will result in suspension from use of all WCTV equipment and facilities until the lost or damaged item has been replaced or repaired, or may result in legal action. The user will not be responsible for normal wear and tear of equipment.
CHECK OUT – Portable equipment will be checked out and in by WCTV. Equipment will be thoroughly examined both at check out and return to determine the condition of the equipment at that time. Users should allow time in their production planning for this procedure.
PRACTICE – New workshop graduates may reserve production equipment and facilities for the purpose of practicing. It is understood however, that access productions in progress will take precedent and the user may be required to relinquish their practice time to facilitate the completion of the production.
EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES – The equipment and facilities are provided for the express purpose of producing programs for cablecast on the community access channels. The use of equipment to produce programs for private use only or for personal or commercial gain is prohibited.
