Editing Suites

  • Suites A, B, and C are equipped with OS X and high-power Macintosh CPUs with AVID Pro and Mojo boards plus Photoshop and After Effects. This makes the editing suites suitable for longer-length, upper-level projects for advanced students and graduate students.
  • Suite D is a new Avid Nitris 3.0 Suite, operating on a high-end Macintosh workstation.
  • Suite E runs Avid 2.8 on an Intel PC and has limited high-definition capability.
  • Suite F is reserved for advanced students doing complex new media projects requiring extensive memory and other special requirements. Suite F is fundamentally the same as the configuration of DPL 1.
