Revised - DXARTS Advanced Digital Imaging Expansion
The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS)
The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) supports a high quality workflow for film and video production that students currently utilize on a daily basis. We are able to facilitate the development and research of cutting edge audio/visual artworks and technologies, providing students across the university support and access to sophisticated equipment and techniques for sound and image making. This proposed Advanced Digital Imaging Expansion will greatly build on our existing STF and department funded equipment that is in extremely high demand for students' work across campus. The expansion will allow for a much overdue upgrade across the entire digital cinema and digital video suite and put advanced tools in students' hands allowing them to explore far beyond industry standard imaging practices. Currently, we do not have the capabilities in our post production studio to optimally work with professional digital cinema footage nor do we have enough cameras to keep up with the student demand. The expansion would allow students to take full advantage of the amazing tools at their disposal as well as support a complete digital cinema/moving image workflow. There are 3 main expansion areas: Studio, Capture, and Support. All students (beginning, intermediate and advanced) experimenting with video art, narrative, performance and documentary work will be able to have 24-hour access to a complete professional color and post-production facility, a data solution for data intensive work and advanced research, and a stable of new advanced cameras and lenses.
