Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice

Leeds Trinity University, a university renowned for teaching excellence in television and radio, have adopted the Quicklink TX to introduce guests into their Yorkshire Voice show.

The Yorkshire Voice is a local live news show produced by Journalism students at Leeds Trinity University which is broadcast live across the University’s social media platforms and website.

At the University’s studio, the Quicklink TX is set up next to the vision mixer station. A production team member is assigned to contacting and managing the guest contributors using the Quicklink and Skype TX Controller. The SDI output from the Quicklink TX is fed into the mixer and then into the studio screen and live output.

“The Quicklink TX has enabled our Journalism students to introduce live remote contributors without the need for them to always come to the studio itself for a short interview. The solution allows our BJTC MA Journalism students to replicate remote live feeds as seen on professional broadcast productions.” Mark Willett, Senior Media Technician at Leeds Trinity University.

Mark continues “The Quicklink TX not only supplements our remote live streaming location camera but enables Journalism students in the field using a phone with Skype to provide live remote coverage”.
