Multimedia Computer Lab

Multimedia Lab Overview

There are 17 PCs and 8 MACs available for use in the Multimedia Lab. Each of the computers are connected to a DVD/VHS recording unit with a monitor to assist in video uploading and editing.

Our lab also includes three audio/video editing suites, a SmartBoard, VHS or MiniDV tape to DVD conversion units, multiple scanners and a Black & White printer.the front of the Multimedia Lab to ensure positive experience in our computer labs and assist with your questions and troubleshooting.

We have three printers available in the Media Hub. Our Black & White printer is located in the Multimedia Lab. Printing from our Black & White printer subtracts 1 page from your printing account for each page in your document. This printer defaults to duplex printing, but can be changed to single-sided printing.

We also have two color printers. Our primary color printer is located behind our Front Desk and our staff will gather them from the printer for you. If needed, you can also print to transparencies for $1 per sheet from this printer. Our second color printer is located in our Mac Lab and can be used for printing up to 11" x 17" sized documents. Printing from our color printers subtracts 10 pages from your printing account for each page in your document.

Video Editing
Using one of the editing suites or iMac stations in the multimedia lab, students, faculty and staff can edit videos and produce a finished product in DVD, CD, VHS, flash, QuickTime, and windows file formats.

1-hour block appointments can be made in person in the Media Hub, or over the phone through the Media Hub information desk at 382-6170. Please make sure to note if you need training in the appointment book, or alert the student assistant to your needs.

When coming to edit, make sure to bring all of your materials and be prepared with any text or music you would like to add. Having text written out, music pre-selected on a flash drive and knowing what portions of your video you would like to edit or remove will save you many headaches.
