Inc. is a small science and technology TV news and production
company based in New York City. It was co-founded in 1996 by scientist
and CEO/President Eliene Augenbraun to increase the number of quality
science stories being broadcast to the public. The company established
an independent news bureau, ScienCentral
News (formerly known as Science & Technology News Network), to
report on the medical, environmental, and technological issues affecting
daily life. ScienCentral News' features can now be seen several times
each week on ABC’s and NBC's local TV affiliate stations.
The company also produces general science and technology projects. ScienCentral
Productions has helped organizations such as the Institute of
Medicine and the Lucent Technologies Foundation
communicate science and technology to various audiences through videos,
educational products, and the Web. And in collaboration with Twin
Cities Public Television, ScienCentral also co-produced “Transistorized!”—the
award-winning PBS documentary on the invention of the transistor.
