Interested in video, audio, or image editing?

Great news!  The final details on the new Multimedia Center are getting ironed out!

Library Dean, Scot Harrison, wrote that the "goal  of the Multimedia Center redesign is to provide students with up-to-date technology needed for digital video and audio projects."

The new Center will have 16 student workstations, an instructor station with a SMART Board or a projector (final decision still hasn't been reached), and several large whiteboards.  The workstations will have 27-inch monitors and four stations will have dual monitors.  The hardware in the three study rooms in the center will also be upgraded and include dual monitors.  All computers will have Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection and high-end processors and graphics cards.

The Center will support semester-long courses, such as COM 300which will focus on podcasting this semester and will include filmmaking later on as well as workshops and will be available to students with multimedia assignments.  It is anticipated that the Center will be especially useful for education students, whose portfolios require video components.
