Yamaha Nuage helps train Germany’s technicians of the future

University of Applied Sciences (Hamburg, Germany) has recently added a 1,715 m² new media building, where a Yamaha Nuage system has become the centre of post-production. The university hosts over a thousand Bachelor and Masters degree students, with the Faculty of Design, Media and Information based at the Finkenau Campus.


The new media building features modern technology in film, audio, lighting and media production. As well as learning theory, media technology students can gain practical experience with the latest equipment.


“When planning our post-production studio we looked at the current DAW systems including several controller solutions,” says Carsten Goldberg, Dipl.Ing, technical head of the faculty’s audio department. “We had been using Cubase and Nuendo for some time and wanted something that fitted our current workflow, but was also flexible enough to prepare our students for what is a versatile industry. Nuage seemed the perfect solution.”


The core production facility is a 70 m² octagonal live room with seven metre high ceilings, surrounded by seven recording and editing rooms including a Foley stage and accommodation block. The whole production area is linked via a complex Dante network. Any control room can be linked to the live room or any other edit suite.


Supplied and installed by Hamburg-based Nuage Partner Digital Audioservice, the Nuage system comprises an NCS500CT Master Unit and two NCS500FD fader units.
