ATG Broadcast completes Media Gallery relocation for BBC Academy ATG Broadcast has completed relocation of the BBC Academy's central London production training studio from Marylebone to White City. The project included the installation and commissioning of a Media Gallery control room and studio floor including traditional tape-based equipment as well as the most up-to-date file-based technology.

"Moving the Marylebone facility to White City forms part of the integration of the BBC's technical training activities into a College of Production which will operate in conjunction with the College of Journalism and the College of Leadership and Management," comments Nick Hall, Technical Services Manager at the BBC Academy. "The new site has the advantage of being close to BBC Television Centre and adjacent to Media Village. It can operate in conjunction with the BBC's engineering training facilities at Wood Norton."

MW Video Systems IBC success. Posted: 26/10/2009
MW Video Systems IBC success. MW Video Systems report that they were very pleased with the results they have had so far from showing their products at IBC 2009. Despite some concerns about the effects of the Credit Crunch on the number of visitors and the scaling back of projects MW found some real business opportunities and although visitor numbers were down (according to the organisers own statistics) MW had a substantial number of serious enquiries.

Brian Speck, MWs managing director, said I was extremely pleased with the reception we got to our Technical Furniture, it has been some time since we last exhibited at IBC and I have to say that I was concerned that we might have chosen a very bad time to go back in, however I am now sure it was the right decision. We booked a fairly modest stand with the emphasis on showing our styling and quality and we received extremely complimentary comments from everyone who came to see us. As a result we now have a considerable number of projects to work on and I can honestly say we have never been busier, quite an achievement in these times.

MW provide a complete technical furniture design, build and fit service for clients from a simple edit suite to a full Broadcast Gallery as well as having a comprehensive range of off the shelf products. For further information please contact Brian Speck on 01869 345222, email sales@mw-video.com or visit our website www.mwvideo.com.
