UHD Upgrade For Anglia Ruskin University

News Image
A project to upgrade Anglia Ruskin University's SD television studio and gallery to HD – with a provision for a future move to 4K – has been completed. Megahertz was appointed systems integrator to provide consultation services and also design, install and commission the upgrade.

The new UHD-capable studio replaces an in-house analogue solution that the university had installed a decade ago. A redesign of the existing gallery layout was required and the facility now features three Panasonic AK-UC3000 4K cameras and AK-UCU500 Camera Control Units. An AW-UE70 Panasonic remote PTZ camera, AJA UHD VTR and HD graphics/character generator are also installed.

All UHD feeds are generated from a Ross Carbonite Black 2ME vision mixer for programme/transmission and preview monitoring. HD streaming is possible from HD sources or down-converted UHD sources, such as the programme output from the vision mixer. Other equipment installed at the studio include an Allan & Heath QU16 audio mixing desk.

Daniel Jagger, Creative Design Technical Manager at Anglia Ruskin University's Faculty of Arts, law and Social Sciences, said: "We were looking to create a highly proficient learning environment, built to broadcast industry standards. With Megahertz's vast knowledge and experience, along with their impressive portfolio of broadcast clients, we were confident they would deliver a system that would meet our present and future commercial, technical and practical requirements. This Megahertz design gives our students access to a facility that is as close as possible to a 'real world' operational TV studio while offering them a simple yet flexible system on which to learn. Ultimately this will give our graduates an 'edge' when it comes to future employment in the broadcast industry."

Jon Flay, Managing Director, Megahertz, added: "It's a pleasure to be involved with an educational facility that is pioneering some of the key new 4K technology. With such installations, we are effectively contributing to the future of the broadcast industry, which will certainly involve graduates from Anglia Ruskin University."
