New Program Transition Plan


The Digital Media program is undergoing some exciting changes that will benefit our students and help them prepare for the work force. These include classes that give students the opportunity to work on projects and software similar to industry demands.

DJI Osmo


The Digital Media department strives to keep up up with the ever advancing mobile video market. With the new DJI Osmo, camera operators are now able to run, jump, and even skip while maintaining a perfectly balanced video. This camera gives our students the opportunity to capture beautiful video while on the go!

GoPro Hero 4 Session

Our new GoPro Hero 4 Session is a small camera that packs a powerful punch! This lightweight camera is perfect for capturing action shots while also producing beautiful images up to 3264×2448. The GoPro is waterproof and mounted to surfaces making it a versatile tool for adventurers.

New DJI Ronin 3 Axis Gimbal Stabilizer


The DJI Ronin allows our students to create freely fluid moving shots. The automatic gimble stabilizes the camera as the videographer moves around the shot thus giving them more flexibility than ever before! Our current DSLR’s and Blackmagic Cinema cameras can be mounted on the Ronin as well.

New Updated Macs


The Digital Media Technology classrooms and Media Lab have been upgraded with new and improved Apple computers. Each computer has a 5K 27-inch built-in retina display running the latest OS from Apple. These computers are equipped with Intel Core i7 processors, 8-GB or 16-GB RAM, a 256 GB SSD Flash Storage or a 1TB drive and a Radeon R9 graphics card with 2 GB V-RAM. Additionally, each system has a full suite of Adobe Creative Cloud software alongside other industry standard apps.
