Green screen video camera

The new 'pop-up' facilities are open to staff, students and the public to create a range of digital content. 

The West Hub's Digital Media Lab can be used to record high-quality videos and audio to deliver digital content to the highest production standard. The equipment can be used to record green-screen videos, podcasts or add voice-overs to presentation slides. Content creators of all levels can bring a brief and a script to the Lab and the Media Team will provide the equipment and the technical assistance to help produce high-end digital material.
