Students Sponsored to Amsterdam Conference

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. Congratulations to Marco and Nashpal, who were chosen to attend the International Broadcasters Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam with the International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers (IABM). Commiserations to those who were unsuccessful this year but the standard was very high and the staff were proud of your performance.
