Broadcast Engineering Students help to provide over 12 hours of live coverage of the recent University Varsity Tournament.

Recently our industry partners, Cloudbass, helped the University’s Broadcast & Live Event Technology and Sound & Live Event Technology students to produce the best coverage of Varsity to date. Cloudbass provided their “CBOB4” 12 camera HD rigid truck together with EVS replay servers, 7 HD camera channels including two RF cameras, and variety of additional fibre-based audio / vision technologies. An embedded feed was provided which in turn was broadcast live on Facebook for over 12 hours.

Working with the Union of Students our students were able to assist with all areas including VT, camera operation, camera racking, sound, and live directing. There’s nothing like “getting your hands dirty” and this event exposed our students to the full gamut (excuse the pun!) of live television.

Due to our collaboration with one of the UK’s major Outside Broadcast facilities providers, students are able to gain experience of using equipment that Universities on their own simply can’t resource.

If you’d like to join a programme which provides its students with industry focussed and industry relevant teaching/work shadowing opportunities across all areas of Outside Broadcast, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
