Nuage Contributes to Higher Education at HAW Hamburg

Nov, 2015

Yamaha NUAGE has become the centre of post-production at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), Faculty of Design, Media and Information, Department of Media Technology.

Hamburg University of Applied Sciences is one of the most important tertiary educators for audio and video engineers in Germany. Hosting a total of 1,069 Bachelor and Master’s students, their new media building (1,715 m²) on the Design & Media Campus Finkenau is a state-of-the-art facility providing the latest technology in film, audio, lighting and general media production. In this studio facility media technology students have the opportunity to not only learn the theory but also get practical experience with top of the range equipment that prepares them to become the next generation of production specialists.

“When planning our post-production studio we looked at the current DAW systems including several controller solutions,” Dipl.Ing.Carsten Goldberg, technical head of the audio department, explains. “As we had been using Cubase and Nuendo for some time, we wanted to have something that fitted our current workflow but was also flexible enough to prepare our students for a versatile industry. NUAGE seemed to be the perfect solution and it turned out to be true. We like the tight integration with Nuendo, which is our main production system for audio in general. The way to work with the contoller is very intuitive and instead of spending ages fiddling about trying to learn another piece of equipment, you can instead use it like a console and can focus on the sound.”

The university´s core production facility is a 70 m² octagon-shaped live room with 7 metre high ceilings and is surrounded by seven recording and editing rooms incuding a foley stage and an accommodation place. The whole production area is connected via a complex Dante network providing an unprecedented connectability. Virtually any contol room can be linked to the live room or any other edit suite which allows huge recording sessions as well as independent works for bigger groups of students.
