New digital media production suite opens

Media Studies and communication journalism and marketing students have advanced new technology to learn with, following the opening of a digital media production village on the Wellington campus.

 Associate Head of the School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing, Dr Elizabeth Gray, says the suite of rooms on Floor D of Block 5 is a continuation of the upgrade of facilities available to students studying through both the College of Business and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

“After months of intensive planning and work, our cutting edge new facilities offer students and staff a complete workflow for video, audio and multi-media production operating as the digital heart of the Bachelor of Communication.”

 The new facilities that include a video studio and control room, sound suite, multi media editing suite would complement the existing digital media practice lab.

 The video studio, complete with a green screen, can be used by staff and students to carry out interviews, pieces to camera, instructional videos, learn the management and running of a video studio and to make mini lectures.

 Students from the School of English and Media Studies who since 2011 have enjoyed the use of an adjoining theatre laboratory and green room will also use the digital media suite as part of their course programme.
