Mission & Vision

"Building a Better Community through Technology"

LTC MISSION STATEMENT
LTC fosters open access to information and communication technologies for the distribution of free ideas, community development and personal empowerment.

Did you know that the average American watches

14 years
worth of television in their lifetime? But did it ever occur to you to ask how much time that same person spend making television? It seems pretty crazy that if TV and digital video are the main ways we get information and entertain ourselves that such a small percentage of us actually know how to make it, doesn't it?

That's what LTC is here for - to get all of us average Americans off the couch and BEHIND the camera - calling the shots, telling the stories, and truly communicating with other members of our community.

Ever dreamed of being on TV? Or do you just have something you'd really like to say? Then come to LTC and we can help you make the thought a reality.

Our fully functioning television studios contain top of the line equipment like a green screen (yes, just like the weather reporter uses), tapeless HD cameras, multi-track audio mixers, and professional studio lighting.

Contribute your voice to the Lowell community on Lowell Comcast channel 8 (Public), 95 (Education), and 99 (Municipal). Want to learn more before you step on set? LTC offers classes in studio operation, camera knowledge, creative software programs, and web design. These classes will provide you with the necessary tools and valuable skills that will help reach your broadcasting goals. Let LTC give you the freedom to express yourself and empower your community!
