VINTEN Broadcast have donated two lightweight Vision camera support systems, worth around £2,000, to the Faculty of Creative Media and Performing Arts at West Suffolk College.
They were delivered at the beginning of June and have already been put to use by the students.
Ray Robertson, Head of the School of Media, said: “This gives students a chance to work with professional equipment of a quality which we could never have afforded to buy. These professional systems offer a very high degree of stability and control for a perfectly steady picture.”
Peter Harman, training manager at Vinten Broadcast is a former student at West Suffolk College, having studied Mechanical and Production Engineering there in the 1970s and ten years later, when his career with Vinten took a different turn, he took an IQA (Institute of Quality Assurance) diploma.
It is part of his role as training manager to form links with those colleges and universities throughout the UK which are providing quality training for students intending to work in the media industry. Mr Harman says he would definitely count West Suffolk College amongst the best small media schools.
He said: “I am very impressed by the college's Media department and their very positive attitude. We were very happy to donate these systems. In the longer term, I hope we will be able to think of something more permanent - some way of getting involved in the course.
Links between West Suffolk College and Vinten Broadcast were first developed when visitors from China Central Television and the Beijing Institute were introduced to Vinten by College staff. Vinten already had a sizeable operation in the Pacific Rim countries, and the Chinese delegates were delighted to find a world quality supplier of broadcasting equipment on their doorstep.
