Digital Media Labs

The Digital Media Lab (DML) Consortium consists of five Digital Media studios/classrooms. Two Digital Media studios are located in Dwinelle Hall and three are on the second floor of Kroeber Hall.

295 Kroeber is a computer lab with 12 Apple and 3 PC workstations. Software options include Final Cut Studio, Adobe and Macromedia suites, Maya, Max/MSP/Jitter, and more. Eight of the workstations have dedicated DV capture decks with color broadcast monitors. Other available hardware peripherals include a firewire capture audio interface, a midi keyboard, audio reference monitors, an audio mixing board, and a data projector. The core of the computer lab is a Quad Xenon 64-bit XServe.

An adjacent room, 285 Kroeber, functions as a shooting and recording studio as well as a forum for screenings and discussion. This studio offers a large flexible space for video shoots, including a Libec dolly tripod, Mole-Richardson lighting, a green screen, a skateboard dolly and tracks, and rolling scaffolding. A separate audio recording room houses a hanging vocal recording mic and walls covered in sound-absorbing material.

A third Digital Media lab in 275 Kroeber houses the Photography studio/classroom that has 18 computer stations and a 44-inch, large-format printer, Epson Photo Stylus Pro R9900.

All studios are on electronic keypads for 24-hour access. The Digital Media Labs have equipment available for student check-out, including digital video cameras, lighting kits, audio recording devices, microphones, mic stands, boom poles, and a variety of audio and video production accessories.
