Welcome to the MPS Support Website.

Students working in one of the the MPS Mac LabsWe created this website to make your interaction with the MPS easier and more efficient. You will find here all sorts of useful resources: basic facts about the MPS, its facilities and staff, frequently asked questions (FAQ) and tutorials and guides about our equipment and software.

We very much rely on you telling us what is missing, what we can improve, what is inaccessible or confusing on this site. You can pass on your comments by clicking on Contact MPS link at the top right of every page, we will be grateful for your input.

We are now taking ADI facility, equipment & support bookings for the academic term starting in September 2014. Please book using the ADI Technical Resource Form (download link below) and return the completed form to

Please note that the PC lab: WB.1.15 and the Mac labs: WB.1.11, WB.1.26 and WB.1.27 are managed by the UEL Timetabling Unit and not by the ADI Equipment Store.

Please contact Anne Stow to book the ADI West Building computer labs.

We would like to remind all staff that the current formula for calculating Technical Demonstration hours is: 1 hour per 20 students for each teaching week. Please observe this when making your booking. However, if you need more support hours in a particular week and less in other weeks, you should indicate this in your booking form (within the 1 hour per 20 students for each teaching week formula, of course); we will try to make appropriate arrangements with the Technical Associates.

Please remember that Technical Associates are employed to assist in delivering lectures or workshops, and are not allowed to teach or take the responsibility for the class.

Turning the Radio Studio digital

s2-10_mixer_frontiso_thumbMPS’s busy radio studio will have its first major equipment upgrade in 20 years. Our radio technician Trevor Hails has been skilfully maintaining our old Soundcraft analogue mixer and managed to keep it alive and functioning well all this time. Unfortunately last year the equipment started to exhibit more faults and the cost of maintenance was going to spiral out of control. We managed to get additional funding from the University’s 2009/10 budget and after much research purchased a Sonifex S2 digital mixer. S2 is a new breed of radio broadcast mixer. Using the latest technology components, it offers digital audio quality with analogue ease-of-use in a modular format. We are working hard with the manufacturer to have it installed for Semester A 2010. The teaching staff and the students will see many advantages in the new set-up, most importantly the ease of use. MPS technicians will create preset configurations appropriate for the teaching needs and users will have a working setup at a press of a button.
