Every course in the program that requires shooting outside of the studio uses Sony cameras that record in 1080i. The editing labs use Avid Media Composer version 5.5, Final Cut Pro 7, and the entire Adobe CS6 Production bundle including Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop.
|Beginning courses and some elective courses including Digital Imaging, Compositing, and DVD Production all have access to the Sony HVR-HD1000U HDV camera which shoots in the 16x9 1080i format as do all cameras in the program.|
|Video Production students use the Sony HVR - Z1U High Definition cameras along with the most current version of Avid Media Composer for editing and finishing.|
|Advanced students use the Sony HVR-Z7U, a three CMOS chip camcorder that records to a Compact Flash card for the added benefit of working in a file based editing workflow.|
JVC DV 550 cameras are used by students in the Remote Production course for coverage of Football, Hockey, and Basketball. These cameras are fed to our remote truck and switched live for sporting and cultural events.
