University of Miami's Award-Winning Cable Channel



Nationally-recognized television professionals have learned their craft in our state-of-the-art studios. UMTV houses two fully equipped digital television studios, control rooms, a broadcast up and down link studio and a 40' X 40' sound stage. For broadcast students studying Meteorology, the center is equipped to deliver professional, on-air graphics with real-time data feeds and visualization software.

As television technology advances, we look to stay ahead of the curve and continue to train tomorrow's newsmakers here.


The control rooms are where UMTV productions come to life. Students get professional hands-on experience working with Grass Valley K2 servers and switchers, Chyron graphics systems, and audio boards to create professional productions that can be streamed live online or on our cable channel. Control rooms also aid in allowing remote location broadcasts from live events on the University of Miami campus.

UMTV’s Master Control is the technological engine behind UMTV operations.


Students have access to cutting-edge equipment to aid them in creating their productions. The studios recently underwent a major upgrade that allows UMTV to produce shows in full HD. With this upgrade came new cameras, lighting, servers and audio boards. Editing suites are available fully-equipped with Apple iMac computers installed with Avid Media Composer and Adobe Creative Cloud.

The Equipment Room is also available that has an inventory of digital video, still and audio equipment.
