About the Michigan Tech Video Network

Telcom operates a Non-Cable MVPD / SMATV / Cable TV System to provide Michigan Tech students on campus with television programming.

The system delivers broadcast, movie, information, international, sports, music, and entertainment channels throughout the campus residential community. The system consists of satellite receivers, cable television modulators, and an extensive distribution network. Basic cable service is provided to over 1300 locations on campus with many subscribing to the premium movie channels.

Michigan Tech also supports H.323 (IP) conferencing and web-based video conferencing. While Telcom supports the infrastructure used by these video conferencing services, Michigan Tech's department of Educational Technology Services supports the engineering and services.
