Media Management


Students are expected to provide their own external hard-drives for storing media files and editing projects.

We can no longer supply SD and CF cards with camera bookings. It is highly recommended that you purchase your own cards to safeguard your footage. We suggest SDXC with a data rate of at least 30mbps.

Alternatively, Atomos Samurai or Ninja recorders can be booked to record directly from your camera. Please check SiSo for compatibility.
