White Mark Completes College Studio Commission

A high-tech tapeless television studio has been installed by the College of Law, one of the UK's leading providers of legal education and training.
It commissioned acoustic and technical design company White Mark Ltd to design the studio for its new facility in Store Street, Bloomsbury.
Due to open in September, the four-floor facility will house the College's entire Multi Media Unit and will incorporate four Final Cut Pro edit and graphics suites, a voice over booth, a Pro Tools audio edit suite, an Apple xSan 2 server system for tapeless workflow, a Newtek Tricaster Broadcast System and a number of solid state cameras.
Jon Harman, Director of Multi Media, College of Law, said: "The new facility will be used to produce 76 1/2 hour programmes annually for the legal professional development market - a £2.5 million business in its own right that we are planning to launch as an online TV service in January 2009.
"The Multi Media Unit also produces a wide range of interactive e-learning solutions that are delivered via the web and have rich media content. This part of our role is increasing rapidly and the new facility will enable us to modernise and streamline our workflow processes."
Having a multi-functional television studio in central London that is both tapeless and able to stream live will provide the College with a valuable asset.
Once operational, it will be used to film interviews and studio discussions for the College's roster of television programmes and to film video content for the interactive learning courses produced for College students and the legal professional development market.
"In the last three years we have made 250 e-learning courses and we plan to evolve and expand this number over the next five years," Harman said.
"We will also use the new facility for internal business communications. The College of Law is a £60 million business spread over seven centres nationally; therefore we have a great need and desire to increase business communications between these centres by web-casting important business messages to staff.
"The new studio will enable us to air discussions between senior management and the staff and increase a collegiate environment by presenting clear and concise communications internally."
Harman adds that White Mark was chosen for this project on the strength of its reputation as an acoustic design company.
White Mark specialises in production facilities for music recording, film and television and has designed and supervised the construction of over 170 audio production suites worldwide. For this project White Mark is working alongside Root 6, which has been commissioned to handle the studio installation and engineering.
