Murray Edwards College, Cambridge is strengthening its technical capability with the appointment of Liam Martin as Audio Visual Technician – including meeting the currently changing needs for hybrid events.
Responsible for all the AV equipment across the College and conference spaces, Liam runs the technology aspects of all events including sound, live streaming, filming, recording and hybrid elements.
Following a first class degree in Audio and Music Technology from Anglia Ruskin University, Liam worked freelance as an audio producer, mostly making podcasts, as well as organising live streams and remote meetings during the pandemic.
Liam says: “In my new role I have already worked on some exciting projects with interesting people, including an Art event which included a live link from Ukraine and a session with a BAFTA and Academy Award-nominated film maker about his documentary ‘For Sama’.
“Most recently, I have been helping out on an active set for a TV show for a household name celebrity, as ‘in house crew’. It was really exciting to see the person in our Lecture Theatre!
“I am also working on refitting the AV equipment in Paula Browne House, so we can provide broadcast-standard live streams and hybrid events there. It’s a really great development that we are able to support remote participants, anywhere in the world, which is certainly changing the game with events.”
