Congratulations to Live and Studio Sound graduate Kath Gray who has just been named Young Technologist of the Year by the Royal Television Society. Following her graduation in 2013 Kath has worked for NEP Visions as a guarantee engineer.
Last month Media Technology students were on hand at Glastonbury festival to offer technical support for some of the media operations. A team of our students spent a sweltering week at Pilton’s Worthy Farm, guaranteeing the department’s outside broadcast production vehicle.
Students from the Media Technology programme presented their thoughts on ‘technologies to look out for at IBC‘ to representatives from the IABM today. Topics ranged from virtual reality and immersive formats, to LED lighting panels and cloud-based editing. Andrew Jones and Dr Martin Salter were impressed by the students’ preparation and passion for their topics.
Yesterday saw the culmination of three years of hard work for our soon-to-be graduands. Final year Media Technology students presented their final year projects to the academic team and industry representatives during our annual technology exhibition “poster day”.
Media Technology students were visited yesterday by founder and director of AKA Broadcast, Kris Whitely. Kris formed the company six years ago with the vision of creating a light-weight systems integration service that could bring the most appropriate equipment together to deliver cost-effective and timely projects.
On the 27th April through to Monday 1st Teddy Rocks festival was in full swing. With multiple stages and tents it was a challenging technical brief but Media Technology student delivered for the charity event. Students provided technical support for their Production and Journalism cousins who were providing all the coverage and feeds for the event.
Senior Lecturer in Media Technology Paul Bourne presented a lecture to the local network of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on Wednesday 10th May.
