Grand Canyon National Park's Success with their Virtual Studio for Kids


SAN JOSE (March 18, 2013) - Turn Key Operations, Inc. (TKO), a video communications solutions provider serving commercial, government, educational and international enterprises, today shared the results of the implementation Grand Canyon National Park's Virtual Studio for Kids. The Studio uses both video conference and Skype technology enabling National Park staff to teach lessons about the Park to school children all across the country. The video production studio network design and integration as well as equipment were provided by TKO Video Communications.

"This year park rangers expect to reach 3000 students with lessons on ecology, geology, and human history of Grand Canyon National Park" said John Roensch, TKO's president and CEO. "We are delighted to have had a role in making all of the complex networking work effectively behind the scenes so that Park Rangers can do what they do best - bring the wonders of the Park to school children everywhere." This project was a unique challenge since the studio required green-screen technology and a network infrastructure that supports high definition, live, multi-camera video production. Schools have the option to connect via Skype or through a dedicated IP address. Environmental Education Rangers hope to reach 10,000 students in future years.
