Location Resources

Our on-campus media store provides a wide range of field recording equipment suitable for media capture while you are on the move or out working on location.

From handheld audio recording devices, interview microphones, sophisticated electronic news gathering (ENG) and streaming equipment, you’ll have all you need to grab the action away from base and prepare for developing your post-production or broadcast media when back on-campus.

Radio studios

Our radio studios provide you with everything you need to plan, present, produce and broadcast news, radio feature, podcast and music-programme content. The studios have webcam access to ensure audio content can always be accompanied by image streams demanded by contemporary broadcasters.

All studio areas are networked together and across our production newsrooms. Teaching and production areas have access to live newsfeeds from across the world. Students will enjoy high professional standards in the software and hardware they have access to, alongside exacting technical support to get the best from all our production studios.

TV news room and studios

Across our newsrooms there are over 60 PCs ingesting live news and sports stories from across the world. This raw information forms the foundation for opportunities to craft radio and television scripts and immediately dispatch them into our radio and TV studios for the presentation team to broadcast.

TV and radio news and sports presenters will experience the buzz of the ‘5-4-3-2-1’ in their in-ear talkback system as they go live on-air for the first time, with their colleagues fully hands-on stationed at sophisticated vision mixing, audio balancing and subtitling equipment in the studio Gallery.
