The film studio features professional studio lighting, various backgrounds, a mobile desk and video and audio production facilities with a live vision mixer.

Please contact the media service department if you would like to use the studio. It can only be booked for university projects upon consultation with them.

The uniCROSS editorial team also use the studio, e.g. to record bands live or for TV presentations. Visit the uniTV website and check out one of the alma* TV programmes filmed in our studio.

Recording booth
Recording booth

You can use our recording booth for professional voice recordings. A large diaphragm microphone can be used to record your text straight to the computer in the control room. We can also record film scores.

To use the recording booth, you will need a brief introduction to the technology and, ideally, a second person to control the recording.

Viewing stations
Viewing station

The University Library boasts an extensive video archive. As they are reference holdings, this media can only be viewed on site. The viewing stations in the media centre are used for this. At the counter, you will be given a key and a headset for your reserved media.
