Egham, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 29 April 2012
The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have officially opened MediaCityUK as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The Queen toured The Studios at the new media centre on Salford Quays while the Duke unveiled a specially-commissioned holographic animation at the University of Salford’s new digital media teaching facilities that are equipped with proAV’s ground breaking AV technologies.
Prince Philip watched students filming a programme in one of the new building’s professional television studios and toured the Digital Performance Lab, a creative media teaching and research space that houses some of the world’s most advanced AV systems.
proAV was awarded the contract to equip the prestigious digital learning, teaching and research space by main contractor, Overbury plc and the new campus was formally opened in October 2011 when the first undergraduate and postgraduate students embarked on courses including Audio Technology, Journalism, Animation, Computer and Video Games, Digital Broadcast Technology and Creative Technology.
