Case study


Developing a fully integrated video workflow
at Huddersfield University

Huddersfield University’s Media and Fine Art departments recently upgraded a suite 
of iMacs to be used by its creative students. They wanted to complement this with a trio of high-spec Mac Pros. They got in touch with us, so we sent in some of our experts to help spec up the perfect hardware for the hybrid HDV video workflow.

Why did they come to us?
The university was moving from a tape to a hybrid video workflow, and wanted hardware to deal with ingesting the new media, plus three high-spec Mac Pros to act as ingest and editing stations.

What did they need?
As well as new cameras and ingest equipment to support the different media, the university needed thee Mac Pro workstations so that students would be able to work with their footage as quickly as possible.

How did we help?
As well as sourcing Mac hardware, Sony HDV cameras, a tape deck, card reader, HD production monitor and fast RAID storage, we tested, configured and installed all the new equipment, then provided training for the university’s technical staff.

What were the benefits?
The university is now teaching media students a more modern workflow, which will ensure they have industry-applicable skills when they graduate. The upgraded hardware allows them to ingest, transcode and transfer files more quickly, meaning that less teaching time is wasted waiting for footage.
