Air University Television  
Lt Col Ronald D. Fowler, Director  

Air University Television is Air University's dedicated television facility, the Air Force's southeastern regional television production center, and one of five Air Force distance learning uplink (broadcast) sites. From a full-service, $4 million physical plant, AUTV provides video production and editing, cable distribution, satellite uplink and downlink (receive) services, and television engineering consultation to support Air University's professional military and continuing education courses locally and Air Force wide.

As a part of the Air Technology Network, AUTV provides satellite uplink or downlink services. Courses are transmitted from the broadcast studio to downlink sites throughout DOD and the federal government. Downlink signals are distributed through Air University Cable Network (AUCN). AUTV also provides digitized video clips for inclusion in interactive courseware.

Production personnel produce broadcast quality videotape programs for a wide range of applications, from short video supplements to faculty lesson plans to full-length programs for widespread distribution. Video programming to support daily classroom needs is aired over the AUCN. The AUCN signal is received in all Air University classrooms on Maxwell AFB and Gunter Annex. Presentations in each school's main auditorium are distributed live or recorded for delayed playback and entry into the video archive.

Engineering personnel provide the technical services required to install, maintain, and repair the more than 1,400 pieces of video equipment in the AUTV facility and its subsystems throughout the Maxwell-Gunter community. AUTV engineers also provide consultations to customers planning new requirements or modifications of existing video systems. They provide comprehensive product research, procurement planning, system description, schematic preparation, custom installation, acceptance testing, and emergency repairs.
