Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) funded PhD Studentship in
collaboration with 360 Production

Applications are invited for the following DEL CAST studentship
(Co-operative Awards in Science and Technology):

A Software Platform for 360 MAM (Media Asset Management)

360 Production, based in London and Derry/Londonderry, is a company
with significant experience in the TV industry and is a leading
provider of factual content (e.g. `Digging for Britain', `James May's
Things You Need to Know About', `The Crusades'). 360 Production’s
objective is to create innovative TV content which can be communicated
in diverse, strategic and innovative ways, fusing great TV with great
technology. 360 Production is in a period of growth focused on
revolutionising the distribution of TV content. This goal will be
pursued through the creation of interactive multimedia, mobile and
online applications, which can maximise the interactive potential of
TV content. The University of Ulster encourages research in digital
creativity, intelligent multimedia and creative technologies, which
involves a combination of knowledge and skills from the Creative Arts
and Computing and which link naturally to e.g. Digital Cities and
First UK City of Culture, 2013. This studentship encompasses the
investigation of an innovative software platform for 360 MAM (Media
Asset Management).

The project available is in the Computer Science Research Institute
(in collaboration with 360 Production) and is tenable in the Faculty
of Arts at Magee Campus.
