It has involved an investment of 112.000 euros and means we can offer students from the Degree in Audiovisual Media the use of state-of-the-art equipment.

The TecnoCampus has inaugurated today a new recording studio equipped with state-of-the-art technology for audio recording and editing in line with current standards in the music industry. The studio, which has meant an investment of €112.000, makes it possible to reconcile the conditions of recording and professional music production with teaching, as it has a control room that incorporates a stand with a capacity for 25 students.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Mataró and President of the TecnoCampus, David Bote. The former director of Catalunya Ràdio and Digital Media of the CCMA also spoke.Saul Gordillo, who gave a talk on innovation and new audiences in the audiovisual sector; the general manager of TecnoCampus, Josep Lluís Checa; and the coordinators of the degree in Audiovisual Media, Jordi Roquer and Rafa Suarez. 

In his speech, Gordillo highlighted the commitment to digital native content, designed for new forms of consumption such as immersive podcasts or videos on platforms like YouTube. "Radio," he stressed, "is also visual, and must use audiovisual materials and social media." Programs such as "The Bunker", "Crimes" or "Adolescents", he concluded, are the fruit of this strategic vision to renew in content and forms of distribution "with the aim of rejuvenating audiences."

The space inaugurated today consists of a recording room with direct view of the control room, as well as video and audio connection with other spaces of the TecnoCampus such as the set or radio studios. With this infrastructure, small and large format recordings can be made, from traditional productions to orchestral recordings. In the technical field, it has a full range of specialised microphones, Neve, Api and Focusrite preamps among others and the Staten Raven control system, which allows you to work with two large touch screens on all your own editing parameters of a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).

The studio also incorporates a Dolby Atmos monitoring system, a multi-channel audio system, increasingly used in film, video games and music, from which the user has an immersive experience. All these virtues of the space have been verified today, the day of the inauguration, in the musical performance of the group NOUNEE, led by a student of the Degree in Audiovisual Media, April Ndjel.

Tribute to Professor Jou

Coinciding with the inauguration of this space, today was also the discovery of a plaque in honour of the teacher John Joe, who died last year and was one of the main promoters of the creation of the Degree in Audiovisual Media. By agreement of the Board of Trustees of the TecnoCampus Foundation, the SERMAT (audiovisual material loan service) will now be dedicated to Professor Jou. Another teacher, Alfonso Palacios , was in charge of dedicating a few words in memory of Joan Jou as the closing of the event.
