Photo and Video Studios


The 200 sqm video and photo studio is equipped with profes­sional lighting and camera tech­no­logy, ideal for profes­sional photo and video produc­tions. The ceilings have a height of over 6 m and are equipped with a rail system for video lights. In the video and photo studio there are four recor­ding cabins with arti­fi­cial, daylight and profes­sional studio flash light for profes­sional product photo­graphy. The core of the photo studio is the 8 m wide and 5 m high back­drop. In addi­tion, work­sta­tions for repro­duc­tion tech­ni­ques comple­ment the profes­sional video and photo area to be able to take posters and books, among other things. Through the exten­sive camera rental service, students have access to various digital SLR cameras for their project work.

Editing Rooms

The video is a central medium for the presen­ta­tion of the project work. As an important supple­ment to the video studio, editing rooms are available to students. The state-of-the-art equipped work­sta­tions consist of new Power Macs, three high-reso­lu­tion displays, very good spea­kers and profes­sional film editing soft­ware. The data can be stored and retrieved via an extre­mely fast 10 GBit line.

Recor­ding Studio

The recor­ding studio is suitable for profes­sional voice and sound recor­dings and consists of a control room and a recor­ding room. From the control room the recor­dings are coor­di­nated and the audio mate­rial is moni­tored, mixed and edited. The control room is equipped with high-quality tech­no­logy such as mixing consoles and effects units. The recor­ding room is a noise-free room that allows for the recor­ding of acou­stic events. The recor­ding studio is equipped with acou­sti­cally damping elements, so that balanced room acou­stics are created and sound events can be opti­mally recorded.

The computer center as a central faci­lity, toge­ther with the library, forms the infor­ma­tion center of the univer­sity and provides the tech­nical infra­struc­ture for rese­arch and teaching as well as the admi­nis­tra­tion of the university.

In addi­tion to computer pools for lectures, this includes exer­cise and project work­sta­tions with scan­ners, lasers and color prin­ters, as well as 3D/​CAD/​video work­sta­tions with tablets for the most deman­ding 3D, anima­tion or video projects. A render farm ensures fast and reali­stic 3D calculations.

Powerful wire­less and cable networks enable fast data exch­ange and access to internal storage systems and extern­ally stored data. The whole range of IT services of the univer­sity is provided by a virtua­lized server land­scape. Staff of the computer centre and student employees are available until late in the evening to support the students.
