A New Approach to Event Recording…October 19, 2015
The recent opening of the £80m Diamond building has seen a new home for department of engineering and some cutting edge facilities for students from all courses, including Architecture. The Media Unit offers a host of facilities and equipment to loan, including a unique advice service; but we also act as a sign post for students and will always encourage you to seek out the best facility or equipment for your work, even if that isn’t within the SSoA.
Included in these new facilities in the Diamond are 9 dedicated Mac editing suits (pictured), including soundproof rooms, audio recording equipment and large dual display screens, a dedicated TV studio and an equipment loans service that includes Canon 70D DSLR camera kits with Rode Video Mic Pro microphones for video capture. This is a great service, and one which you should take advantage of, perhaps at times when the Media Unit is very busy and all of our equipment is out on loan.
You can find out more about this service on the University’s CICS Creative Media webite. More info on the Diamond Building can be found here.
