Whatever combination of abilities, learning styles and skills your students have or need to develop, creating their own media content can help them on their way. Not only is it a break from routine that will help them engage, it promotes collaboration and group work, and helps you embed key skills throughout the curriculum. From shooting simple video and recording music on an iPad, right up to editing with industry-standard tools, and sharing projects, we can help get you set up with the hardware and software you need for students to start getting creative.

Sharing (Management and delivery)
When your students have spent time producing all that great audio and video content, you’ll want to make sure their efforts don’t go to waste and that your files are stored securely, are easily accessible, and you can share them in the right format. We call this part management and delivery, and it refers to storage, organisation, and how you choose to share your content, whether that’s to the web or to screens around your school. We can kit you out and advise on the best hardware and software to help you manage your files and deliver them across multiple platforms.
Secure, reliable storage – Storage
Mobile hard drives may be fine if you’re only occasionally working with audio and video, but once you step up to a secondary-level music or media course, and beyond, you need storage that’s more reliable and secure, and more accessible over your school’s network. Talk to us about high-speed shared storage solutions.Shop now
Organised, managed files –
It’s also not ideal to have files saved all over the place, with no way of locating them when you need them. Digital asset management (DAM) solutions give you secure access to all your digital files, and help you easily organise, manage and share them, so you spend less time looking for the assets you need.Shop now

Shared storage for pro video editing at Bath Spa University
Bath Spa University were looking for an 11-seat, multi-user video editing suite. They gave Jigsaw24 a call and we helped them find the solution to meet their performance and budgetary requirements, and ensure that they were able to undertake real-world professional projects.
"The Xsan and Fibre Channel solution Jigsaw24 helped put in place is providing our Broadcast Media students with all the power and space they need to produce high quality results. Particularly impressive is the implementation of distributed processing across the suite – transcoding video is now a quick and easy task, rather than an overnight chore.”
