Valley Access Channels serves the St. Croix Valley area including Stillwater, Bayport and Oak Park Heights. It is an area rich in history, music and many cultural events. We are privileged to be able to provide a wide variety of programming for our communities. Our staff of 4 plus many freelance crews produced 148 programs for our local schools in 2009. This includes about 10 elementary schools, 2 Jr. highs and Stillwater High School. We also produce a monthly program with our local school district and the superintendent called "Talk of the district”. Some of our other highlights are producing the Lumberjack Days Parade and concerts, Summer Tuesdays in the Park concerts and numerous local seminars and events. We also produce 10 local government meetings for our cities every month. VAC is also unique in the amount of programming we receive from around the world. We have access programs from more than a dozen states and as far away as Ireland, New Zealand and recently Brazil. We pride ourselves on the quality and diversity our 4 channels have. Our public channel is 24/7 and provides 10 hours of original programming a day. Our inspirational channel has over 8 denominations producing programs ranging from local church services to diverse speakers and religions from all over the country.
Lastly, our facility is state of the art with a studio and 3 edit suites for public use. We have Final Cut for those looking for high end editing and we provide Vegas Pro Studio for those more comfortable using Windows computers. 8 digital cameras are available for checkout and we are adding 3 new Panasonic HD camcorders this month.
