In spring 2016, Leeds Trinity University put out a tender to update their ageing broadcast radio and journalism facilities, we knew it was a project we wanted to tackle. The brief was to convert their existing studios to a digital audio over IP solution, refresh the look of the studio woodwork whilst maintaining the main framework and upgrade to the latest Myriad playout system. Exactly the kind of challenge we love!
We have worked with a large number of Universities and Colleges over the years and in most cases, each project has presented it's own set of challenges to overcome. Here are just a few of the projects we have worked on recently.
In 2015 we partnered with Veale Associates to provide a complete solution for the refurbishment of the University of West London’s broadcast radio facilities. Veale associates are a traditional studio building outfit and handled the physical outfit of the studios as well as the audio equipment installation. We handled the software and IT requirements of the project.
This case study refers to the recent upgrade to the radio broadcast facilities at the Sheffield Hallam University. This project was undertaken in the summer of 2015 and was actually to replace studios fitted by us originally in 2010. In 2010 we had installed analogue studios based on Sonifex S2’s but they wanted to upgrade to digital technology so we recommended a switch to the Axia Livewire system.
In 2012 Broadcast Radio (then called P Squared) was successful in a tender to provide a five studio complex for their radio and journalism course as part of a wider multi-million pound media centre refit.
