All the programming will be done by the technicians and students of the Mass Communication Faculty.

We learn from history and from our past. For this very reason Mass Communication faculty has created a Media Museum where audio visual production equipment which was used over last few decades and which has now been phased out is displayed for the students as well as general public to get a glimpse of now obsolete technology. Most of the equipment has been donated by many known film & video professionals, most notably amongst them renowned documentary film maker Mr. Pramod Mathur and his wife.
The faculty of Mass Communication has a fully functional Television Studio with attached PCR which is fitted with state of the art production facilities like vision mixers, tele-prompters, broadcast cameras, on screen text-generators (VTWs), cool lights and talk back systems. Here the students practice their news-room skills and also assist technicians on the many in-house programs of the university, the flag bearer of which is the e-learning series produced by SGT on a regular (almost daily) basis.
The Mass Communication Faculty has a large ensemble of production equipment needed for Student Productions as well as in-house programming needs. 6 SONY cameras, 9 Cannon DSLR cameras with lenses and filters, Cool Lights, Tungsten Lights, Ground and Stand reflectors, Skimmers, Cutters, Gun microphones with Boom Rods, RF Microphones and field Audio Mixers are some of the professional grade equipment the university owns. The entire production facility is controlled by a studio manager who marshals a team of 3 Cameraman, 4 still photographers, 2 editors, one VFX & Graphics artist, two audio-video engineers and a store keeper.
Two editing bays running on iMAC platforms loaded with Final Cut Pro are at the disposal of the faculty of Mass Communication and Media Technology. Here highly experienced and efficient editors guide students into editing of programs as well as editing all the in-house programs. All workshops, industrial visits, visits of dignitaries, cultural programs of the university are shaped here and all the raw-data is stored on the high end servers. All student productions too are shaped here – rough assembled, fine cut, audio laying, sfx and final mastering is done on these terminals. A graphic station feeds the editing suites with all the graphics and Vfx shots needed by all the productions.
