The National Film and Television School (NFTS) has opened a 4K digital content training studio and hub, and Sony is discussing its installation of 4K and HDR live production tools in the facility.
The Sony Gallery is part of the new facilities at the NFTS’ Beaconsfield campus in England. The space will provide an opportunity for students to learn the ropes of television production and prepare them for the world of modern broadcasting, with the ability to shoot, record and stream live content in 4K.
In order to deliver some of the UK’s first 4K native studio courses, the facility has been equipped with Sony 4K technologies, including six HDC-4300 system cameras, an XVS-7000 switcher and a PWS-4500 live server system, all capable of supporting 4K, HDR and IP workflows.
Nik Powell, director at the National Film and Television School, said: “Educating and inspiring the next generation of production professionals means ensuring they have access to the tools they’ll encounter when they enter the world of full-time employment, and 4K has become an absolute necessity for this.”
