Audio Recording & Publishing

Media Services provide audio recording, editing and publishing. Academics may record lectures, demonstrations and research material. The clients may use written scripts. The audio can be edited and ‘cleaned’ for incorporation into multimedia content suitable for the web or DVD distribution. Audio voice-overs are often used as instructional or promotional pieces in video projects. Our audio recordings are suitable to be incorporated into projects using software such as Storyline.
