New TV Studio switcher

Students and faculty of the Electronic Media Division are fortunate to be housed in Mary Emery Hall, which opened in the fall of 1999.  Emery Hall still seems new to us and we are constantly updating our studios and equipment to make sure it stays that way.  Our new News Set, shown top above, was donated by WXIX TV and proudly installed in July, 2014.  Our Broadcast Pix switcher in our television production studio, shown second, was installed in August, 2009.

We have a full array of video production equipment for the field. This includes new Panasonic High Definition video cameras, a professional range of lighting and grip equipment for documentary, news, commercial music video or narrative production.  This is available through E-Media's Production Office.

The Division's post-production facilities are state-of-the-art with over 25 nonlinear edit workstations designed to work in either high definition or standard definition. This includes an Avid Adrenalines system and multiple workstations with both Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer software capable of capturing high definition video in a tapeless workflow environment and delivering video for high definition, Blu-Ray, DVD, internet and mobile devices, as well as a variety of digital and analog videotape formats.  

The Judith and Jim Van Cleave Multimedia Laboratory offers students access to cutting edge hardware and software used by today’s digital professionals.

Since the fall of 2006, our incoming students are required to purchase a fully equipped Mac laptop.  Students are introduced to the software in the Integrated Media Production I class freshman year.  We are finding that students increasingly do much of their production work on their own laptops.

The Ralph J. Corbett Audio Production Center includes first class, acoustically treated recording spaces, control rooms and post-production suites.  Our studios are designed to support surround sound production and mix environments using modular digital multi-track and digital audio workstations, ProTools and Adobe Audition technologies.

The Jack and Joan Strader Radio Center offers state-of-the-art radio production facilities for the student-run internet radio station, Bearcast.

Our electronic newsroom, donated by the Scripps Howard Foundation, includes two Final Cut digital video editing suites and the NewsKing script writing system.

Our non-production classes are held in CCM’s “smart classrooms”, which are equipped with multimedia teaching stations.

E-Media's Production Office

E-Media students take Digital Video during their second year in our program.  They’ll find the staff in the production office to be important to their success in that course and beyond.
