Channel 7 Oaks Television (7Oaks TV) is an innovative and exciting program created by the Seven Oaks School Division in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Channel 7 Oaks was developed and is currently located within Maples Collegiate. The program began in a single classroom and has since expanded to include two film studios, a broadcast control room, and the use of an iMac computer lab. During the fall of 2011, the Channel 7 Oaks Website was released after nearly a year of development and has since brought video content to thousands of viewers around the World.
A variety of programming has been developed by the members of the Channel 7 Oaks program. Working in conjunction with the students of the Film and Broadcasting program, the Channel 7 Oaks Crew has released nearly 150 video projects in the first two years of operation. These projects include live broadcast recordings, studio shows, and short films. All of which are developed using the latest broadcast technology.
During the spring of 2013, development of a new and improved Channel 7 Oaks Website began. The redesign was implemented to prepare the system for future growth and the move towards high definition video support and high definition video streaming as well as increased support for mobile devices. A majority of the new Website features were rolled out during the fall of 2013. In order to stay current, we expect to be updating the Channel 7 Oaks Website and application on an ongoing basis. The current version is "mobile friendly" and was rolled out during the fall of 2016 with updates occuring in 2017 and 2018.
