Liverpool John Moores University
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.
At the time, it was decided that a traditional analogue solution would be preferable as the Axia AoIP equipment was fairly new at the time, so we recommended a Sonifex S2 based solution with Myriad Playout in each studio.
The key criteria for the JMU installation was to provide commercial grade equipment that was genuinely in the commercial and wider radio industry. The aim was to provide a dynamic environment where the students could learn and perfect radio and news presentation skills and produce coursework for assessment as part of several media related courses.
One of the key factors was that they wanted a fully integrated system that would make work completed in one studio to be instantly accessible in all the other facilities. The included Myriad Playout system with centralised audio and data storage met and exceeded this criteria.
The installation was undertaken in the summer of 2012 and was completed in time for the start of the following September term.
In addition, we also facilitated the creation of an online radio station for JMU which allows the students to experience live broadcasting and help them showcase their work.
