De Montfort University’s Faculty of Technology

, which houses one of Europe’s largest and most up-to-date media technology facilities. PluralEyes, which is now installed on 32 Final Cut Pro® workstations in De Montfort’s Department of Media Technology, helps students understand dual-system sound technology, which is a convenient way to retrieve high-quality sound to match the high-quality video recorded by HDV and DSLR cameras. Videomaker magazine recently named PluralEyes the Best Audio Software of 2010. Its unique and valuable workflow automation features for managing multi-camera, multi-take, and dual-system audio productions initially caught the attention of De Montfort’s Department of Media Technology’s audio technology academic, Justin Davey. With a degree in audio electronics and a background in sound engineering, Davey is no stranger to syncing dual-system sound. Regarding PluralEyes, Davey says, “DSLR is the new hot topic, so I was searching for a way to integrate it into our curriculum. I saw positive feedback on PluralEyes all over the web, so I approached the university about it. I said that our students need to learn how to retrieve high-quality sound for their video projects, and that PluralEyes is one of the best ways to accomplish this often daunting task.� De Montfort undergraduates now can take advantage of PluralEyes’ unique audio-syncing technology in a number of media-driven courses, including Media Production, Radio Production, Media Technology, Multimedia Computing, Music Technology, and Audio Recording Technology. “Students have access to a Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera, along with high-end Sony and Canon HDV cameras that they use to record video, and then capture audio on a separate high-end recorder. Part of their coursework is to learn how to do things manually with clappers, etc.; but I also show them how easy it can be to combine the audio and video in Final Cut Pro using PluralEyes,� comments Davey. Bruce Sharpe, CEO of Singular Software and creator of PluralEyes, says, “De Montfort University is known throughout Europe as one of the best schools to attend for students in the production technology field. The university’s top-notch instructors and forward-thinking curriculum have produced some of the industry’s brightest talents. We are thrilled that the school chose PluralEyes to enhance its reputation as a leader in avant-garde media education.� To learn more about De Montfort University and its Faculty of Technology, please visit:
