Media Commons offers iMac station in library

9/14/2011 —



Work on multi-media projects becomes more convenient for the Penn State New Kensington community with the opening of a new Media Commons editing station in the Elizabeth S. Blissell Library. 

The new iMac computer station sits adjacent to the library information desk and offers a convenient third location for individual and group work. This location offers opportunities to edit audio or video projects in a quiet environment. In addition, library staff will be on-hand to offer advice on issues such as copyrights.

The other two locations for the editing stations are in the Computer Center and in the main Media Commons room, located in Room 12B on the lower-level of the Conference Center.

Media Commons is a University-wide initiative to provide a variety of services to help students, faculty and staff produce and publish multimedia projects. The studio supports teaching, learning and research. The studio is equipped with a HD camera, studio lighting, green screen, and microphones, and can be utilized for video or audio productions. Consultants, training opportunities and audio/video production facilities are available to beginners as well as advanced users.

For information, contact Deborah Sillman at dys100@psu.edu via e-mail.
