TSL snaps up Ravensbourne gig


Ravensbourne College is one of the UK’s leading educators in the field of broadcast production and technology. In October 2010 the college moved from its campus in Chislehurst to a brand-new purpose-built building in the Greenwich Peninsula.
Ravensbourne were looking to appoint a systems integrator to design a new end-to-end broadcast facility. TSL, a company recognised for its experience and expertise with broadcast systems, was selected as their preferred partner of choice.
TSL managing director David Phillips said: “Ravensbourne is fertile soil for those seeking careers as operational, systems network or product development engineers. We are delighted to have been chosen to design and build the system that will be used by the next generation of broadcast technology professionals to acquire and develop the creative and technical skills necessary to flourish in the industry.”
The assignment was not a standard broadcast systems integration project, but one that required a number of unique features from TSL. It was essential that the solution demonstrated an understanding of educational needs – from providing students with an authentic experience to supplying the lecturers with the necessary tools they require to teach.
TSL were able to develop an individually tailored solution to comprehensively meet the needs of Ravensbourne College. Working closely with innovative third party manufacturers, yet remaining fiercely independent in its approach, confirmed TSL offered a first class bespoke solution for which the college was searching.
TSL went on to build a complete broadcast facility including a 135 sq.m TV Studio with 5 cameras, Production control rooms, Presentation facility, Ingest area, 12 Edit Suites and an Audio Recording Studio. In addition to the TV Studio, other rooms and open spaces were cabled to allow the whole building to be used for TV production.
The facility was built using an extensive range of equipment for students to obtain experience across the whole of the broadcasting sequence. A level of flexibility was ensured for future intentions of installing prevailing technology.
The system was preconfigured at TSL’s facility in Maidenhead and shipped to site in June 2010. Today, Ravensbourne has a spacious and flexible broadcast facility; a perfect solution for lecturers and students, whilst ensuring the college remains a leader in broadcast education.
Robin Baker, Chief Executive of Ravensbourne College said: "I have been very pleased with the attitude and performance of TSL in the installation of all our TV equipment. They have always acted professionally and I would certainly recommend them to other organisations”.

Cloud integration: The only way is up
Francois Vaillant

In 2017 we saw the introduction of SMPTE 2110 and since then, the transition to IP has emerged as a priority for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations, decrease their footprint and effectively integrate with an industry in a rapid state of flux. A 2020 survey by Devoncroft found that almost 20% of broadcasters had already deployed SMPTE 2110, and over 25% were planning to do so. Then came the pandemic, precipitating the need for on-the-fly collaboration and accelerating the transition to remote, virtual and cloud production.

Meeting the specification
Chris Smeeton

A good technical specification will detail precisely what is required, from the equipment to the cables connecting it. Many specifications will give  particular manufacturers and model numbers. On many occasions, this makes tendering simple and gives vendors a secure and fair way to bid.
