Students in our studio

A week has passed since Peter Salmon, the Director of BBC North, opened our new High Definition (HD) studio in the LINC building. I must say it was a real coup for us to have Peter take time out of his very busy schedule and officially open the new facility. Peter is a major player in the move of BBC departments to Media City in Salford. 

The TV studio has been designed and built to reflect the facilities that exist in any other studio in the broadcasting or media industry. Peter commented that it looks  and feels like a top professional studio environment. It’s worth mentioning that it’s the only studio of its kind to exist within a Higher Education institution in the North West. As a matter of fact, our studio features in JVC’s professional broadcast website

What does all this mean for the student experience? Well, we have the most up to date industry equipment, full HD cameras and a full HD tapeless workflow. Tapeless means, the workflow model within the studio environment does not get recorded onto conventional video tape. Instead it gets saved in digital file based format. This streamlines the production process within our editing systems, dramatically cutting down production time. Furthermore our systems are fully integrated and transparent allowing a seamless flow between the studio and our editing systems. 

Our students will graduate with a competitive edge over their rivals  as they will have gained hands on experience in a high technical specification, industry standard environment. 

Students can get access to the studio by ringing 01695 584304 or via e-mail mediadevelopment@edgehill.ac.uk 

The media development team can also provide one to one sessions on request and a full overview of our latest, up to date technology. 

We look forward to showing you around our new studio. If you have any questions or feedback on our studio facilities please leave your comments below or by using the contact details provided.
