LSBU's technical facilities are equivalent to a modern production company's and their video and editing equipment is constantly updated.
Our eight laboratories hold 123 Apple G5 Intel computers that run all the major software packages you'd expect to find in a professional environment. Our specialist areas feature dedicated and high-end production including video editing suites, audio mix studio, audio booths and a photographic studio with printing and scanning facilities. They are the focus of project work for both our undergraduate and postgraduate students. Students have their own individual accounts and dedicated server space that enable them to work on any computer in any room.
