To support students working in new media, McMaster has a well-developed Humanities Media and Computing Centre with labs, servers, support staff and a media library. This lab has research workstations suitable for digital video, audio editing, electronic text scanning and manipulation, and web development. These facilities will be used for completion of both course work and media project requirements.
The servers, including CFI-funded research servers, in the staff and research lab can support advanced and innovative digital projects. We have the capacity to create virtual servers as secure domains where graduate students can develop new media works. Specific resources supported by the HMC are listed below.
