Studio Use for Series Producers

September 04, 2020


Due to COVID-19 Open Signal is not open for regular hours. However, we will be allowing series producers to make appointments to use the studios 2 weeks or less ahead of the desired production date starting on September 21st. 

  • There will be no live cable broadcast shows. You will be required to submit your shows to us in your Community Dashboard either onsite when using the studio, or remotely at least 2 days prior to the premiere date. Studio appointments have not been scheduled in advance for you. You will be required to contact the front desk either by leaving a message at 503-288-1515 or emailing frontdesk@opensignalpdx.org to have someone contact you to set up an appointment, go over policies and answer any questions.
  • For those who are unable to submit video remotely, you may set up appointments to upload your content. Contact the front desk by leaving a message on 503-288-1515 or emailing frontdesk@opensignalpdx.org to have someone contact you to set up an appointment.
  • Reservations for field equipment for your series must be also arranged. Contact the front desk either by leaving a message on 503-288-1515 or emailing frontdesk@opensignalpdx.org to have someone contact you.
  • Your series episodes are due a minimum of two days prior to the premiere date.  Shows are submitted remotely, or let us know which episode you'd like replayed. More information about remote submissions is available here: Submitting Video Remotely. If you're unable to submit your episodes on time please contact playback staff at playback@opensignalpdx.org or 503-288-1515 ext 321.
  • All new show submissions must have a show record created in your Community Dashboard. If you're not sure how to do this please contact playback.

    Please be aware that playback staff will not be working on holidays on these dates: November 11th, November 26th, December 24th and December 25th. We will not be processing files on those dates, but your shows will broadcast per usual. We may take additional time off for the holidays so if we are missing shows we may contact you to see if we can get them in advance.

    You are allowed to create show records in your account and share your files with us now for next season.


    Happy show making!
