On Tuesday Aug 17, the Bridge opens our new Digital Media Lab. The lab, funded and managed by the ZSR library, Office of Entrepreneurship, Information Systems and the Chambers family fund, provides an environment where students, faculty and staff can explore new digital media and technologies.

The lab contains 7 Mac Mini desktop machines, five SunRay thin clients (3 running OSX and 2 running Linux) and one Windows Vista machine. The services supported in the lab include digitization of photos, video and audio, Multi-media editing, software development and standard productivity applications.

The lab builds on the related services of the bridge including the Mini-Studio, Videography services, and multi-media and innovative eqiupment checkout. The Bridge circulates iPads, eBooks (Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and Sony eReader), videocameras and audiorecorders to WFU students, faculty and staff.
