World-class Learning Environment
Newhouse's classrooms are web-ready and feature KeyNote, PowerPoint and other programs that support advanced multimedia presentations.
Laboratory computers are equipped with motion graphics, 3D animation and research tools. Students learning about visual media have access to digital imaging, Final Cut editing, digital sound editing and Adobe Creative Suite programs. Our professional photography studio offers Profoto D4 strobe equipment and lighting attachments, as well as HDSLR and digital Mamiya medium-format camera gear. Our collaborative media room is where students build web-based, interactive information sites using Macintosh computers.
Broadcast and digital journalism and television, radio and film students have at their disposal two television studios with a master control room; these facilities have recently undergone an $18 million renovation and upgrade. Field equipment includes dozens of digital video camera systems (HD tape and tapeless formats), lights, microphones and other production accessories.
Post-production facilities contain 60 HD nonlinear editing stations (Avid, Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro); a 16-channel, digital music-recording studio; two digital post-production sound studios equipped with Pro Tools HD and 5.1 surround sound capabilities; an extensive sound effects and music collection; Photoshop, After Effects and Cinema 4D graphic systems; and an encoder and server for video streaming on the web. The Newhouse School is an Avid and Apple authorized training partner and offers courses that lead to Avid certification. The broadcast newsroom computers use the Associated Press’ Electronic News Production System, and students edit digital radio news stories using Audacity.
