Whether you’re a University / College, high school, or an institution dedicated to the teaching of media production (and broadcast), your goal is to prepare your students for the real world. Yet such institutions typically don’t have the resources or budget that real world post production or broadcast facilities have.
This is not to say that your demands are not as great. In fact, educational facilities providing such curriculum and/or services often face challenges well beyond those of typical post production or broadcast facility. For example, you likely have an IT department deeply involved in the infrastructure of your teaching environment without the media workflow expertise you may desire. The IT department will likely be more concerned with network security and protection than with your media.
There’s also the need for a high level of compatibility across operating systems and applications, like Adobe’s Creative Suite, Apple’s Final Cut Pro, and Avid’s Media Composer. In order for the students to keep up with the latest in media production technology and gain a broad experience, educational institutions must be able to move between new and legacy operating systems and editing applications with ease.
