Radio Broadcast Facilities
The university is equipped with an ISDN line, Sip.Audio / ipDTL and radio studio for broadcast quality audio interviews. This is located in the Horton D building (opposite our main reception), and is managed for the university by the School of Media Design & Technology technical support team. It is equipped for up to three interviewees, and will usually be supported by a technician during broadcast, unless you are working with an experienced / regular expert who is familiar with the codec operation.
For further information, contact our press office.
University staff can find out more from our Specialist Production Resources SharePoint Site.

ISDN support is provided free of charge to broadcasters requiring use of the facility for university interviewees. Use of the facility for external clients / interviewees is chargable. Please contact the press team for further information.
Recording sessions for BBC broadcasts (e.g. Radio Leeds, Radio 4, Word Service, 5Live, etc) should normally be supported directly by the BBC Yorkshire team, who are based in the office next to the studio.
In addition to an ISDN line, broadcast quality links can be received by broadcasters using ipDTL. We are equipped with Sip.audio, Luci Live, BBC BASS and Skype Accounts with broadcast quality audio connectivity. This enables us to broadcast from any location on campus. Sip.audio codecs can be supplied to academics who need to broadcast from home using their domestic broadband internet access.
Please discuss options with us first if you'd like to use one of these solutions.
RamAir is the University of Bradford's student radio station, broadcasting from Student Central for over 36 years. In fact they're the oldest continuously-running student radio station in the UK!
Equipped with two studios for broadcast and production, and access to the university's ISDN line, they are an ideal option for more sophisticated broadcasts than basic down-the-line interviews.
