The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at LIT offers a diverse range of programmes; if you’re looking for a career in renewable energy, music technology, audio and video production, automation or electronic engineering.

With up-to-date laboratories, editing suites and recording studios, students will get to work on today’s best industry standard equipment. Our hands-on, practical approach to learning means you will have the knowledge but also the skills to tackle even the most difficult jobs.

The staff are constantly finding new opportunities to get their students involved in real-world work. Students from the Video & Sound Technology programme were given the chance to get first-hand experience of filming and recording for the revival of Munster Rugby’s “Munster TV”. Students attended practice sessions and press conferences leading up to the Heineken Cup and edited their videos in the new LIT editing suites to provide high-quality videos for the team’s website. Give us a ring if you’d like more information on what our department can do for you!

Hi all, Well just back lecturing at LIT and low and behold we have Avid Media Composer 5 installed on all the suites. We have been running tests today to see if the intergration works with the Avid Unity server and so far there have been only a few small path issues which have been sorted.

The interface is pretty much the same folks, Avid is a bit like Porsche in that they tend to leave the look of the product the same but only tweak the performance and price as it suits them.

With the positioning of the tools on the left of the timeline and a few graphical changes MC5 seems to have pretty much the same build performance as its previous version.

MC5 does have a few new tricks however… this is taken from the website. It make interesting reading. Enjoy.

  • Directly access and edit RED files through AMA, without transcoding (images are scaled to HD frame size)
  • Work natively with QuickTime video formats, including Apple ProRes and H.264
  • Edit video and audio by dragging and dropping elements in the timeline
  • Keep high-end finishing projects in-house and gain great color precision with HD-RGB support (including dual-link I/O support with Nitris DX systems)
  • Monitor video externally with support for the Matrox MXO2 Mini
  • Mix and match frame sizes and aspect ratios — in addition to formats, frame rates, and resolutions — in the same timeline
  • Take a break during long renders and have your system email you when the job’s done
  • Import AVCHD files directly from cameras and other devices
  • Capture to and edit XDCAM HD and DVC PRO HD formats from baseband without additional hardware
  • Access low-res XDCAM proxies for offline work, with full-quality audio
  • Import text-based ancillary data and embed it in the video signal with the new “Data Track” and SMPTE 436M support using Nitris DX- and Mojo DX-based systems
  • View stereo audio tracks as single channels in the timeline for easier handling
  • Create high-quality sounds and mixes with support for RTAS audio processing plug-ins
  • Natively access and edit 4:2:2 MPEG-2 media from the new Canon cameras using AMA
