There is an immediate requirement for some CATV systems to originate local programs and other material by April 1, 1971. The various means of preparing material to be used for local program or advertising origination is discussed. Production equipment which has already proven itself and which requires little maintenance is used. In this case it is 16mm. Some of the requirements for a CATV system are described, such as mobility, preplanning, the quality of the system and inter-changeability of the system with other systems.
