Our Media Centre consists of two major areas:
- The Production and Post Production facilities
- The Newsroom, Broadcast Newsroom and Radio Studios
Production and Post Production
Our post production area houses 40 dedicated HD edit suites, each offering a late 2013 model Mac Pro equipped with industry standard audio, video and compositing software (Avid Media Composer 8, Adobe CC 2014, Pro Tools 11).
Our shoot studio is capable of hosting medium-scale set build and lighting set-ups, whilst our sound studio consists of a control room and soundproofed voice over booth that utilises a talkback system to communicate between the two. Our control rooms are equipped with specialist Digidesign audio hardware consisting of mixing desks and recording software for voice and music recording.
The Broadcast Newsroom consists of a multi-purpose iMac production area and a state-of-the-art high definition Television News Set. Our iMacs run both Windows and Mac OS and offer dedicated television and radio production software (Burli, Autocue Newsroom, Premier Pro, Audition). Our three-camera Television News Set was thoroughly revamped in 2013 and offers a plethora of industry level equipment, at the heart of which is our Newtek TriCaster 460 integrated production switcher. In addition we have a separate Newsroom for multi platform newsgathering, offering a wide range of specialist software.
We have three professionally equipped radio studios and a dedicated studio monitoring area. Each studio comes equipped with a range of specialist news production and music scheduling software (Burli, Myriad) and professional hardware (Sonifex S2 mixing desks, ISDN units).
