Vegas PBS opens $60 million facility

Vegas PBS's $60 million Educational Technology Campus was dedicated Monday (June 28), reports the Las Vegas Business Press. The 112,000-square-foot facility houses operations and production for the station, as well as the Clark County School District's Virtual High School and educational media database. "Our role in the community as a local media company is to work with organizations to empower them through the use of the technologies and the distribution networks we have," said g.m. Tom Axtell. Vegas PBS has seven broadcast channels and oversees six closed-circuit channels, and a Homeland Security database of building blueprints for police and fire departments to access during civil emergencies. KLVX is the first totally "green" television station in the United States or Canada to seek LEED gold certification for its facilities (Current, Jan. 8, 2010).
