Digital Media Suite Computers
The Digital Media Suite (DMS) has 11 Windows and 5 Mac computers available. All have the complete Adobe Creative Cloud collection of software installed. The DMS is divided into two main sections, the staffed, instructional lab and studios and the unstaffed, self-service lab and studio.
In our instructional space you will find 11 computers available (9 Windows, 2 Macs). Two of the Windows computers have dual-monitor setups for more advanced projects. An additional Mac is available in our Audio Studio. The dedicated video studio is also available in this space. Staff can provide support with all the hardware and most Adobe software (see below for exceptions).
In our self-service spaces, you will find 4 computers available (2 Macs, 2 Windows). The One Button Studio is also available for use to record audio or video. All the self-service resources are available anytime the East Wing of Ekstrom Library is open (see Library hours here). To access the computers, simply come into the open lab area at the front of the DMS. Access to the One Button Studio is available at the East Service Desk.
