Visions of Virtual Production

Virtual production (VP) is increasingly being integrated into education, driven by advancements and investments in the technology. Kieran Phillips, Director of Sales and Marketing at CJP Broadcast Service Solutions, spoke to Installation about how CJP has been actively involved in this development, contributing their expertise to educational institutions.

CJP has worked on several notable projects, including the installation of VP studios at the University of Sunderland, the University of the Creative Arts, and Southampton Solent University. These projects equip students with access to state-of-the-art VP technologies, preparing them for careers in the media industry. According to Phillips, these installations not only provide essential technical skills but also foster creativity and collaboration across various academic disciplines.

Phillips emphasises that “these university facilities prepare media students for careers by giving them access to the tools they will be using in the professional world. But their influence is bigger than that: they introduce other disciplines to new forms of creativity which can have a transformative effect on their specialist fields.” By providing training and access to advanced VP tools, CJP is helping to bridge the gap between education and the professional world, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the demands of modern production environments.
