SA-CAN – San Antonio Community Access Network Studios (PEG)
On this tour, you will visit the City of San Antonio’s newly constructed 32,000 sq. ft. SA-CAN television production facility located in San Antonio’s historic Plaza de Armas building. The production facility includes two 2,500 sq. ft. television studios that can be transformed into one 5,000 sq. ft. studio by retracting a Skyfold acoustic partitioning wall into the ceiling of the studios. The facility includes two Green Rooms, two AV-Control Rooms, several Edits Bays, Engineer Room, Master Control, Equipment Room, Prop Room and SA-CAN staff offices. The entire three-story facility is equipped with state-of-the art television production equipment and was entirely funded with the use of City PEG funds. We will show a short video of the studio construction process.
The City’s television network includes our three PEG channels (PATV-INTV-TVSA) and our new City-owned television channel KGSA-TV. We just launched our own broadcast television channel, FCC-licensed, this month.
