LCTV BROADCAST BULLETIN BOARD
LCTV is pleased to help your organization promote your cause or special event.
The LCTV bulletin board is for Lincoln County non-profit organizations to announce their missions, upcoming events, activities or public services.
You’ll find detailed information below about submitting your news to us. You can also email us at email@example.com or call the station at 563-6338 for help.
Sending your image files and videos:
- IMAGE file settings: .jpg or .png, minimum 800(W) x 600(H) pixels (4:3 ratio) or 1280(W) x 720(W) pixels (16:9 ratio), dpi 72
- Please email your slide(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org , or email the exact text you want on the slide(s) (20 words or less) and LCTV will choose a background for the text. You may also deliver text only (20 words or less) requests by snail mail or by dropping off the request at the station (Lincoln County Television & Media Center (LCTV), 29 Sheepscot Road, Newcastle, Maine 04553).
- VIDEO file settings: For best playback, use a .mp4 container with a H264 codec, frame rate 29.97, resolution 1280×720 or 720×480, max audio peak at -6db. Deliver by one of the online services such as Google Drive, We Transfer or DropBox. You can also bring in or drop off a DVD, flashdrive or hard drive. Please make sure to label your hardware if you drop it off.
Due to limited space and available broadcast time, messages will be posted on a first-come first-serve broadcast basis. Please let us know the beginning and ending dates for the posting. Be aware that events are posted no earlier than 21 days from the beginning day of the event. No organization can post more than 4 slides per month – 1 permanent mission slide and 3 event slides that can be changed on a monthly basis.
All postings are subject to approval by LCTV.
