TSL snaps up Ravensbourne gig


Ravensbourne College is one of the UK’s leading educators in the field of broadcast production and technology. In October 2010 the college moved from its campus in Chislehurst to a brand-new purpose-built building in the Greenwich Peninsula.
Ravensbourne were looking to appoint a systems integrator to design a new end-to-end broadcast facility. TSL, a company recognised for its experience and expertise with broadcast systems, was selected as their preferred partner of choice.
TSL managing director David Phillips said: “Ravensbourne is fertile soil for those seeking careers as operational, systems network or product development engineers. We are delighted to have been chosen to design and build the system that will be used by the next generation of broadcast technology professionals to acquire and develop the creative and technical skills necessary to flourish in the industry.”
The assignment was not a standard broadcast systems integration project, but one that required a number of unique features from TSL. It was essential that the solution demonstrated an understanding of educational needs – from providing students with an authentic experience to supplying the lecturers with the necessary tools they require to teach.
TSL were able to develop an individually tailored solution to comprehensively meet the needs of Ravensbourne College. Working closely with innovative third party manufacturers, yet remaining fiercely independent in its approach, confirmed TSL offered a first class bespoke solution for which the college was searching.
TSL went on to build a complete broadcast facility including a 135 sq.m TV Studio with 5 cameras, Production control rooms, Presentation facility, Ingest area, 12 Edit Suites and an Audio Recording Studio. In addition to the TV Studio, other rooms and open spaces were cabled to allow the whole building to be used for TV production.
The facility was built using an extensive range of equipment for students to obtain experience across the whole of the broadcasting sequence. A level of flexibility was ensured for future intentions of installing prevailing technology.
The system was preconfigured at TSL’s facility in Maidenhead and shipped to site in June 2010. Today, Ravensbourne has a spacious and flexible broadcast facility; a perfect solution for lecturers and students, whilst ensuring the college remains a leader in broadcast education.
Robin Baker, Chief Executive of Ravensbourne College said: "I have been very pleased with the attitude and performance of TSL in the installation of all our TV equipment. They have always acted professionally and I would certainly recommend them to other organisations”.

Creating Authentic Content That Counts
Frank le Mair We’re deep into the 2010’s and the way in which we consume content has changed forever. Broadcasters and content owners are fighting for eyeballs in a saturated market where consumers are watching their favourite shows on different devices across a number of platforms. To target millennials and younger generations, who generally consume short bursts of video on YouTube and social media - particularly Snapchat, Instagram and now IGTV - media companies are creating more and more authentic stories and are using platforms that are compelling for this demographic. Unlike generations before them, they have totally new video viewing patterns and ideals.

The Pace of Change
Dick Hobbs - new

The youngest human to stand on the moon (so far) was Charles Moss, the lunar module pilot of Apollo 16. Charlie had a wonderful claim: his father witnessed the Wright Brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk, and lived to see his son on the moon.

Does anything capture the speed of technological advance better than that? The whole of the history of powered flight in one lifetime.
