Digital Media Center

Digital Media Center

The Pompano Arts and Cultural Media Center will be responsible for the support of audio/video/visual smart instructional technologies.

The Media Center is focused on serving the needs of the students as well as the center and the city by providing them with the opportunity to use technology in state-of-the-art effective and efficient ways. This involves providing the tools, making those tools accessible to and encouraging their use to enrich the learning experience of all.

These services include providing multimedia support for classes and events, distributing and maintaining such equipment, evaluating and implementing new classroom and presentation technologies, supporting city and organizational activities as they relate to media presentation, and producing a variety of content for the center including “live” video and audio productions within its walls and beyond.

The Media Center

Designed as a full functional production facility, this classroom is set up as five (5) workstations with three (3) students. Each student is provided with Mac computers fully integrated with all necessary software and connected to a main terminal (teachers station) which will also double as an TV anchor desk for selected productions.

The room will also be equipped with an array of state-of-the art cameras, lighting and a specially designed wall for “green screening” and background use.

This 21st century media center will nurture collaboration and hands-on learning in the fields of communication and multi-media. Including broadcasting, graphics, photography and creative writing. This 21st Century media center will support student collaboration and group work – the dominant instruction and learning style today.

If the classroom is the heart of education, this media center will be its soul.
