Borrow Equipment

MCAT offers cameras, tripods, lighting and microphones for community producers to check out for free and in exchange community producers provide content for MCAT’s cable channels. The equipment must be used for non-commercial purposes. Please talk to MCAT staff if you are being paid to use our equipment. Community producers must get a Missoula Public Library card and attend an MCAT tour and training prior to using equipment.
