NCCC Unveils New Digital Media Video Production Studio

SANBORN, N.Y. (Nov. 5, 2008) — The Niagara County Community College Arts & Media Division unveiled its new Digital Media Video Production Studio today at the Henrietta G. Lewis Library in Room D-120.

NCCC’s television production facility under went a $120,000 major transformation with funds obtained through the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act.

“This newly renovated facility will give our students hands-on experience with state-of-the-art digital video equipment. It also enhances the ability of the College to create innovative digital video programming for the institution and the community,” Kyle LoConti, Arts & Media Division Chair, said.

The facility reflects a major commitment by the College to support its growing Digital Media program, which last year added a new Digital Video & Audio Production track.

The new high-definition (HD) studio is equipped with the latest HD video cameras and production equipment. It also features a computerized lighting system, the ability to produce video in multiple formats for TV and the web, green-screen and virtual set production capabilities, a professional audio recording booth, a teleprompter, HD character generator and a new video screening room equipped with a HD flat screen monitor and 5.1 surround sound audio.

Students in the Communications & Media Arts curriculum and the newly launched Audio Recording and Production program will utilize the HDTV facility and the other digital media labs.
