FAU on ARD-alpha

Television productions of Uni-TV in cooperation with the Bayerischer Rundfunk

In 1999 the Multimedia Center of the Regional Computing Center of Erlangen started a cooperation with the Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) as part of the project Uni-TV. Since then selected lectures of the lecture series "Collegium Alexandrinum", a university-owned series "Ringvorlesung" and other special events have been filmed in a distributed production and have been broadcast in the education channel ARD-alpha under the category "alpha-campus". Afterwards the recordings are made available permanently for download in the video portal of the university. The cooperation with the BR made it possible for the university to offer scientific lectures with topics of general interest to a wide audience.
