Obtaining your own Creative Media Network Storage
Creative Media Storage Request Form
To use the Edit Suites we recommend you edit all digital media work directly from your very own creative media network storage. Once set up, you can access your creative media storage via your network drive, located in 'This PC' when logging on with your university credentials on any managed desktop Windows PC.
The storage will be labelled Creative Media and located under 'X' drive, which comes with 50GB of quota.
This dedicated storage can be obtained by using the form above. Please allow up to two working days to receive your storage allocation. Each creative media storage allocation is issued per project basis. All files on the account will be deleted the day after the expiry date set. If working in a group, only one storage access is needed.
Software available: Everything the university managed desktop offers, including; Adobe CC 2018 (includes Premiere Pro, Audition, After Effects, InDesign, Prelude, Media Encoder etc), Audacity, Microsoft Office, Google Chrome, and many more.
