Durham University DiRAC Memory Intensive Service Relies on Spectra Logic to Preserve Galaxy Simulation Data to Help Understand the Universe

Spectra Logic, a leader in data storage and data management solutions, today announced that the DiRAC Memory Intensive Service based at Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology in the UK has deployed a Spectra®T950 Tape Library with LTO tape drives for the long-term storage of multiple petabytes of cosmological data, representing simulations of galaxy formation and evolution. In addition, Durham recently deployed a second Spectra T950 Tape Library with LTO drives and media to support DiRAC-3, an initiative funded by UK Research and Innovation to upgrade computing power at all four DiRAC sites. The new HPC systems will be three to five times more powerful than the existing DiRAC machines.

NC State University Revolutionizes Production Facilities with IP Connectivity Posted: 06/05/2020
NC State University Revolutionizes Production Facilities with IP Connectivity

North Carolina (NC) State University has transformed its live course production capabilities with a networked video infrastructure, based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for connectivity, around its campuses in Raleigh, N.C. Technology from Imagine Communications is at the heart of NC State DELTA (Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications) providing a quantum leap in capacity and operational efficiency.

DELTA already had dedicated fiber runs linking their centralized operations center located in Ricks Hall Annex with six other buildings on the main campus and two additional buildings located up to 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles) away on their Centennial Campus. Fiber links were being used simply as single-mode, point-to-point connections, providing the capacity for just four video signals per classroom transmitted back to the operations center. In addition to replacing systems that were beyond end of life, it was important to DELTA to provide much greater capacity if it was to meet its commitment to the wider university community for high-quality educational media supporting distance learning in an efficient, effective and service-oriented environment. For the year 2018-2019, this included more than 130 live courses and greater than 7,000 hours of classroom recordings, to support almost 50,000 students enrolled in online and distance learning courses.

The new system uses just 16 fibers to provide extensive networked capability, leaving 20 strands from the original installation free for future expansion. By taking a networked IP approach, the new system gave the DELTA team the capability of 32 x 32 HD signals from each remote building. This is achieved thanks to bidirectional 100 gigabit ethernet capacity across the fiber network.

Salford University selects Sony to prepare students for media industry careers Posted: 12/03/2020
Salford University selects Sony to prepare students for media industry careers

With over 1,200 students a year enrolled on a range of courses from television and radio, to visual and animation, Salford University is well known for preparing students for the realities of the media industry. Central to this preparation are its dedicated studios, opened in 2011, which offer students practical experience and are also used by industry veterans including the BBC and ITV.

Since their opening, the studios have evolved Salford University’s capabilities substantially. Where previously they had one single older 4 camera, 4 mic system, the university now houses 3 industry compliant TV studios and a vast array of cameras, lighting and audio solutions.

“In this space we produce everything from 1 on 1 interviews all the way through to performances of 18-piece Latin bands. We have a large variety of different shows that come in and out. It’s not only for the students, it’s also for working with commercial clients like the BBC, CBEEBIES and ITV,” commented Ash Tidball, the TV studio manager.

White Mark Ltd Revamps Middlesex Universitys Studio A Posted: 05/03/2020
White Mark Ltd Revamps Middlesex Universitys Studio A

The imminent launch of a new BA Degree course in Music Production has inspired Middlesex University London to revamp one of its music recording studios so that it can offer students the very best facilities for their course.

The University, which is based in Hendon, already has two stereo production suites that are DANTE linked to a recording booth, a 5.1 Avid mixing suite and a 24 track recording studio (Studio B), which has its own live room. The University’s existing Studio A, however, had many sound spill issues that needed resolving and it was decided that the best approach was to build a new acoustic space from the ground up.

David Clements, Technical Tutor, enlisted the help of studio design consultancy White Mark Ltd to transform Studio A into an acoustically accurate control room, live room and booth. The facility can now handle stereo and surround sound projects, thanks to the inclusion of a monitoring system that gives students the opportunity to mix in 5.1 and 7.1 formats.

White Mark Ltd was chosen for the project on the basis of its previous track record. “Once we discussed the project with David Bell [White Mark’s Managing Director] and his team, they drew up a design that we really liked,” says Technical Tutor David Clements. “We were looking at a few configurations of the space and White Mark’s plan to make the live areas one large room divided by a folding door into two booths just seemed to make the best use of the space.”

Reynolds Journalism Institute uses the Quicklink TX for Washington Journal interview Posted: 10/02/2020
Reynolds Journalism Institute uses the Quicklink TX for Washington Journal interview

The University of Missouri School of Journalism’s Reynolds Journalism Institute recently used Quicklink TX for an on-air interview with C-SPAN on the Senate presidential impeachment trial.

Staff from RJI utilized Quicklink TX to broadcast Missouri School of Law Professor and author Frank Bowman for a live, one-hour interview on C-SPAN’s morning program, Washington Journal. For this set-up, RJI easily established a two-way, high quality, ultra-low delay call.

“Because of Quicklink, we’re able to sell our small-scale facility to others as a site from which to do these national and international broadcasts. It’s like we’re able to play with the big boys without owning a microwave truck or satellite truck,” said Travis McMillen, senior media producer at RJI. “I’ve found that Quicklink TX provides a powerful, yet straight-forward experience for both the far site and the near site.”

RJI also uses Quicklink TX on a weekly basis during Global Journalist, a ‘virtual roundtable’ program featuring guests from anywhere in the world. During the show, three journalists join the in-studio moderator as guests to discuss a topic from their point of view as the journalist covering the story.

Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice Posted: 20/01/2020
Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice

Leeds Trinity University, a university renowned for teaching excellence in television and radio, have adopted the Quicklink TX to introduce guests into their Yorkshire Voice show.

The Yorkshire Voice is a local live news show produced by Journalism students at Leeds Trinity University which is broadcast live across the University’s social media platforms and website.

At the University’s studio, the Quicklink TX is set up next to the vision mixer station. A production team member is assigned to contacting and managing the guest contributors using the Quicklink and Skype TX Controller. The SDI output from the Quicklink TX is fed into the mixer and then into the studio screen and live output.

“The Quicklink TX has enabled our Journalism students to introduce live remote contributors without the need for them to always come to the studio itself for a short interview. The solution allows our BJTC MA Journalism students to replicate remote live feeds as seen on professional broadcast productions.” Mark Willett, Senior Media Technician at Leeds Trinity University.

Mark continues “The Quicklink TX not only supplements our remote live streaming location camera but enables Journalism students in the field using a phone with Skype to provide live remote coverage”.
