The Media Hub
The Media Hub offers facilities to accommodate both live and pre-recorded television and radio interviews through an in-house fixed camera system and industry-standard ISDN line.
The facility is managed by the University’s Press Office which acts as liaison between the local, national and international media and the University’s 3,000-strong community of academics and researchers.
The Globelynx camera
The Globelynx TVready camera system offers a dedicated 24/7 on-campus TV studio through which the University can showcase the expertise of its academics on a wide range of topical issues — from British politics and flu outbreaks to climate change and US gun control.
Broadcasters can search the Globelynx database to find the details of the relevant University of Nottingham expert before using the simple, online booking system to reserve a camera slot. The Media Hub is located on our University Park campus.
Broadcasters can book University of Nottingham experts not currently on the Globelynx system by contacting the Press Office.
The ISDN-line enables University staff to take part in down-the-line radio interviews without the need to physically travel to a broadcaster’s own studio.
The facility offers broadcast industry-standard equipment that can provide a high-quality and reliable telephone link.
The University also provides additional ISDN line facilities at its Jubilee and Sutton Bonington Campuses which can be booked via the Press Office.
