Radio station interviews/ISDN services at the University Broadcast Center

The Princeton University Broadcast Center studio is available to transmit feeds for live or recorded interviews for radio stations via ISDN and/or telephone connections. This technology has provided professors, interviewers, and listeners with high quality audio from thousands of miles away in various locations around the world.

Princeton professors have been guests on many of the major networks including the BBC and NPR. With access to faculty from various academic departments, the Broadcast Center can arrange interviews with some of the most esteemed experts in their field.

The service is available during regular business hours and to representatives of news organizations who are interviewing members of the Princeton University community. All one-hour radio ISDN interviews for news media outlets will be provided free of charge. For radio ISDN sessions lasting more than one hour, a fee of $100 per additional half-hour (plus tax, if applicable) is charged.

The audio recording studio provides clear sound quality and a soundproof environment that is equipped with four broadcast-grade microphones, which are mixed and edited in a separate control room with Digidesign Pro Tools and transmitted using a Zephyr ISDN encoder/decoder capable of interfacing with any codec that is required by the remote radio or television stations.

The Broadcast Center is located on the A-level of the Lewis Library, at the corner of Washington Road and Ivy Lane in Princeton.

A Broadcast Center staff member sets up the recording studio for your broadcast and handles the connection to the journalists. To request an ISDN or other radio feed, please e-mail or call (609) 258-7872. For more information, visit the Broadcast Center website at
