In the summer of 2019, we worked alongside ES Broadcast to upgrade The BRIT School’s old studio to HD.

The BRIT School is a leading performing and creative arts school in Croydon. They required their TV studio and gallery to be renovated, in order to expand capacity and to bring their technology up to date to allow it to teach UHD production in its courses.

The studio was designed for the school to teach the students multi-camera production, and to live stream events on the school’s Youtube channel. These studio facilities are a key resource for students studying the school’s Film and Media Production courses, so creating a sleek and well operating system was essential.

The project consisted of refurbishing the BRIT School’s existing studio space and installing a completely new gallery. We installed new equipment such as cameras, teleprompters, monitoring, microphones and in-ear monitors, and patching. This equipment included Blackmagic Design URSA camera channels, on pedestals, with prompter heads. The studio also featured a green screen, floor monitors, and a full lighting grid.

A key priority for the client was to upgrade the technical capabilities of the studio to give students knowledge of cutting-edge technologies such as 12G and UHD, and to future-proof the facility. Blackmagic Design products were chosen as solutions that achieved this while remaining within budget. The studio also has streaming capabilities, which was an important aspect for the BRIT School.
