The Digital Media Suite first opened in 2008 as a collaboration between the University Libraries, REACH, and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. It opened with 4 Mac workstations and 3 cameras for checkout.
Technology and Equipment
11 Windows and 5 Mac workstations are available. All workstations have the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, SnagIt, Panopto Recorder, and Audacity installed.
Other software installed include PyWare 3D, ProTools, Blender, QGIS 3, and more.
The DMS supports multimedia creation in two main studios: an audio studio and a video studio.
These studios provide high quality recording and production equipment along with support by student workers.
One Button Studio
The DMS also provides self-service video creation using a studio modeled after the Penn State One Button Studio.
In the past four years, usage of the DMS has increased by more than 91%. In the 2018-2019 academic year, more than 1700 students received instruction on media assignments and over 2900 people worked in the DMS.
On average, students, faculty, and staff spend over 3500 hours each year learning, recording, and producing media in the Digital Media Suite.
Support by the University Libraries
The UofL University Libraries provide diverse support for faculty conducting digital scholarship research and teaching.
