The purchase of a simple video camera and a television in 1981 marked the start of the first children’s hospital TV station in the Netherlands. Patients were filmed with a video camera and they all watched the recordings. Emma TV has since grown into a complete internal broadcaster and has a professional television studio.
From the teen ward, Emma TV makes a live TV program twice a week, exclusively for the Emma Children’s Hospital AMC. Often there are famous Dutch guests! In addition to the regular broadcasts, Emma TV also reports live during events such as Sinterklaas, performances in the Gilat theater and music events within the AMC.
D&MS, together with several suppliers, has offered various equipment over the years. Two D&MS colleagues are responsible for the operational implementation of the broadcasts.
