Marin TV Goes Black in Observance of April 16

You may have noticed the Marin TV channels were black this morning. We could make up all sorts of excuses and snarky explanations, but in reality we had a big UPS unit fail which took down most of our equipment for several hours. We have since bypassed power and are up and running again - our apologies for any inconvenience!

Marin TV - Master Control Updates

November 17, 2016 8:00 AM UPDATE

More work ahead! We brought the Community Channel 26 online last night and it is now playing out the regular program schedule. Still many tweaks to be done to encoder/scalers along the signal path to refine the image quality. We should have Channel 27/30 back to their normal schedules later today.

November 16, 2016 8:00 AM UPDATE

We worked late into the night but haven't yet brought the new system online. There will continue to be interruptions to the normal schedule throughout the day as we transfer files, test and configure the setup. Hopefully there will be a return to normal programming this evening. We appreciate your patience! Note: Live government meetings will play at their scheduled times and the Government Channel 27 remains on the same schedule as usual.

November 15, 2016 UPDATE

We are rolling over the Marin TV cable channels to new servers this afternoon. Expect some disruptions to the programming schedule as we do this. We hope to have things as close to normal as soon as possible. Tweaks and tests will continue throughout the week.

"Honorable Mention" for Dick Jordan's "Cuba, Libre?"

Congratulations to CMCM member Dick Jordan, whose feature-length documentary "Cuba, Libre?" has been awarded an "Honorable Mention" from the SaMo Indie Fest film festival that will take place in Santa Monica, CA in November.

Exploring travel to Cuba by Americans from the early decades of the 20th century to the present day, "Cuba, Libre?" aired on MarinTV in January of this year and had a special screening at CMCM in February. The film was also shown at the Visual Radio Television Network Festival in Oakland in April, and the Sausalito and San Francisco public libraries as part of their respective film programs.

Kudos to Dick, who thanks Cynthia Abbott, Allen Bronstein, Gael Chandler, Marguerite Elliott and other CMCM members and guest instructors for providing critical feedback on the film during post-production.
