CJP Broadcast Maintains Creative Edge at EHU

The Department of Creative Arts at Edge Hill University (EHU) has renewed its technical support contract with CJP Broadcast Service Solutions for a further year. 

The contract includes maintenance of two HD TV studios, radio and sound recording studios as well as upgrade planning and installation services.

Based in the Creative Edge building on the Ormskirk campus, the Department of Creative Arts offers courses in subject areas including Animation, Film, Media & Television plus postgraduate courses to MA level in Film & Media and International Creative Enterprise. EHU was declared 2014-2015 University of the Year in the 10th annual Times Higher Education (THE) Awards and named University of the Year for Student Retention by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. The Department of Creative Arts has strong links with leading companies and agencies throughout the media industry, including collaborations with the BBC and MediaCity.

Edge Hill has two studios which are supported by TV Studio Manager Ian Steel alongside Senior Tech Paul Farrell. One is a professional multipurpose studio. The other is a broadcast standard TV studio. The broadcast space was designed to replicate an industry standard space enabling students to gain invaluable experience of working in a broadcast setting. The studios are managed and support by Edge Hill staff alongside CJP who provide a first class support network.

"Our aim has always been to ensure students gain hands-on practice with the technology they will be working with as they start their careers," comments Neill Cockwill, Creative Media Technology Development Manager. "CJP has partnered with us very efficiently and effectively over a long period, providing the continuity of experience which is essential in any rapidly advancing industry. The CJP team's skills are evident in the quality of the engineering maintenance they provide and in the perceptiveness of their advice as we plan for the future."

"We have been privileged to provide technical support and broadcast engineering services to a number of education facilities over the years,” adds CJP Broadcast Managing Director Chris Phillips. "It is particularly gratifying to assist renowned universities such as Edge Hill which play a key role in developing future generations of media industry talent. The CJP team look forward to working with Edge Hill University’s academic and technology teams for a further year. Recent activity on the department's behalf has been to update an earlier generation lighting control desk with a new Zero 88 FLX which is one of the most advanced of its kind on the market both in its ease of use and in its range of creative features. We have been working with Neill and his colleagues on full technical review of the equipment resources deployed in the Creative Edge building and are now going forward with upgrades as part of a five-year plan."
