Multichannel media production systems
- IMT4371 - 10 ECTS

Expected learning outcomes

The students will have insight into system solutions and components to be used in media production projects where different types of media content will be produced and where content will be distributed digitally in different media channels. The students will be capable of analyze system and tool requirements in actual media production projects; they will be capable of developing alternative solutions for such projects; and they will be capable of recommending a system solution by comparing and evaluating the various alternatives. The students have gained experience from planning, running, and evaluating a multi-channel production project.

Evaluation of Project(s)

Form(s) of Assessment (additional text)

The assessment will be based on two reports:

  1. A midterm report that shall contain the service description and the production plan for the project and that documents the technical solution that is chosen. The report shall also document alternatives that have been considered and tests that have been conducted as a basis for the choice of technical solution. The midterm report counts for 30% of the final grade.
  2. A project report at the end of the project that describes how the production was executed and that documents the details of the chosen technical setup. The project report shall further reflect on the chosen setup and experiences made during the execution of the production. The project report shall also discuss alternative solutions and potential improvements. At last, the project report shall reflect on to what degree the chosen technical solution can be reused in other types of multi-channel productions. The final report counts for 70% of the final grade.

Students may collaborate on the descriptive parts of the report, i.e., the parts that describe the execution of the production and the technical setup. Students, however, must do their analysis and reflections individually and independently.
