UK - Cleanfeed reports that Birmingham City University has integrated Cleanfeed across its broadcast studio facilities.
As with the entire industry, BCU was required to find a way of adapting to remote working during the pandemic.
Cleanfeed was used by all students over the lockdown period on courses such as Media Production, Media and Communication, Journalism and Sound Engineering and Production. The tool allowed students to deliver professional recordings, broadcasts and media interviews which was crucial to their learning and development.
Peter Crowther, senior technician, Radio and Broadcast Journalism, comments: “I was recommended to Cleanfeed by industry contacts and former colleagues at the BBC and quickly realised the benefits for our students who weren’t able to be on campus. The students liked the service so much over the lockdown learning period that we decided to run pro accounts for our final year students, who have a radio station module as part of their final submissions. The pro Cleanfeed accounts allowed them to co-present shows as though they were in the studio together.”
Over the summer, BCU installed in-house designed Cleanfeed touch screen units into the broadcast and radio studios. Peter Crowther continues: “Our arts design and media centre is a £61m-pound building with purpose-built industry standard spaces, designed to offer state of the art facilities, which are also available for commercial hire. The Cleanfeed integration enables us to bring remote guests into our studios in superior quality and to provide them with a feed that allows them to feel like they’re in the studio too.”
Marc Bakos, co-founder Cleanfeed, comments: “We are so pleased that Cleanfeed supported Birmingham City University students through a period that saw everyone needing to adapt and change their ways of working and more recently to be considered an integrated part of their state-of-the-art facilities.”
