School of Communications adds new technology over summer

Three more classrooms in McEwen were tech-enhanced during the summer, meaning that students and teachers can use any combination of video, PowerPoint and Internet access for class projects.

The summer upgrade of McEwen 207, 212 and 214 with data projectors brings to eight the number of tech-enhanced classrooms used by the School of Communications.

The School also added more digital video cameras for students, upgraded the video editing suite, obtained a new Chyron character generator for professional-style graphics in video packages, improved the audio lab and added 120-gigabyte hard drives to a computer lab.

The newest video cameras bring the fleet of digital cameras to 41, compared to 13 at this time last year. The School, in conjunction with Elon Television, now provides 32 GL-1 and GL-2 video cameras and nine of the advanced XL-1s for student use. Students also have access to 4 JVC three-chip cameras, two Panasonic 450 one-chip cameras and one Betacam, for a total of 48 cameras available to students in broadcast and Senior Seminar courses.

In the video editing suite, the addition of a G4 dual-processor computer allows DVD creation, a transcoder permits video format changes, and eight new digital video decks let students input and output projects onto videotape for editing. The School has adopted Final Cut Pro as the video editing software at five workstations while continuing Media 100 at four workstations.

The audio lab was upgraded with ProTools, the latest software to create CDs for audio sweetening manipulation.
