Creative Technology Studios
Our multimillion-pound Creative Technology Studios feature industry-standard video, audio and radio production suites and fully equipped recording studios with facilities for the acquisition, editing and distribution of video, audio and computer-generated materials.
The film studios have multi-camera, blue and green screen studios so that students can create videos that use colour keying to merge video with computer graphics, stock video and still images.
The multi-camera studio replicates the most common setup for TV studios so students can practice techniques covering all of the areas of studio work including presenting, camera work, direction, lighting, and sound. The film studios also include a full lighting setup and students can use live graphic overlays to replicate news, shopping channel and chat show environments.
We also have a suite of workstations with HD editing software, broadcast-standard radio production studios with professional playout and management systems and audio and video laboratories with high-specification test equipment for signal analysis.
Students have access to fused-media and motion-capture studios for the teaching and research of 3D image capture, modelling and display.
Library and learning zones
The Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offers a range of print and online resources to support your studies. Our extensive online collection of resources, e-books and electronic journals can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library staff offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching, reference management and assistive technology. There is also a ‘Just Ask’ service for help and advice, available via email or telephone. In addition, we have space across campus for group or individual work and study, with computer stations, laptops, plasma screens and assistive technology available.
More flexible ways to learn
We offer an equitable and inclusive approach to learning and teaching for all our students. Known as the Universal Design for Learning (UDL), our teaching approach has been recognised as sector leading. UDL means we offer a wide variety of support, facilities and technology to all students, including those with disabilities and specific learning differences.
Just one of the ways we do this is by using ‘DMU Replay’ – a technology providing all students with anytime access to audio and/or visual material of lectures. This means students can revise taught material in a way that suits them best, whether it's replaying a recording of a class or adapting written material shared in class using specialist software.
