HHB has supplied audio equipment including five Pro Tools HD systems,
Euphonix and ICON consoles, and ancillary studio and ENG equipment for the
impressive new premises of the Department of Theatre, Film and Television at
the University of York. Representing an investment of some £30 Million, the
new building includes full television studio and post-production facilities,
and equips the University as one of the country¹s leading educators in Film
and Television Production.
Working in close cooperation with the technical installation company, Wire
Broadcast, HHB provided extensive management and support throughout the
projects, from the initial tender submission through to on-site
commissioning and training.
³The Department of Theatre, Film and Television is unique in that our remit
not only involves providing students with a top flight education but also
requires us to engage directly with industry as part of our funding,² says
John Mateer, Head of Film and Television Production at York. ³This means
that our facilities have to be truly industry standard. Working with HHB and
Wire Broadcast has delivered postproduction facilities on a par with those
in Soho, which is no mean feat given our budget was strictly academic in
Commenting on behalf of HHB, Education Sales Manager Andrew Hingley says
³The University of York has been a valued client of HHB for more than 20
years. This project has been particularly interesting as the facilities are
specified for a wide range of media production from video and film, through
to sonic arts and games development. We have an excellent working
relationship with Wire Broadcast, and this has helped us find solutions to
unusual technical features and efficiently deliver the studio systems.²
³We have been very satisfied with both HHB and Wire Broadcast,² continues
Mateer. ³Ours was a complex build, particularly for a University, and
complications inevitably arose. Both HHB and Wire worked hard to rectify
snags and ensure that the project was delivered on time and on budget. I
honestly cannot imagine the process going any more smoothly than it did.²
The University of York was voted ŒUniversity of the Year¹ at the 2010 Times
Higher Education Awards.
