The New Media Studio serves as UMBC’s central hub for video production on campus. For over 25 years, UMBC’s television production facility has served institutional production needs while providing a rich academic resource for students in a number of disciplines.
Made possible by a unique partnership with Retirement Living Television, UMBC’s production facilities have recently undergone a one million dollar renovation. The new studio provides television production classes an opportunity to work in a state-of-the-art facility. In addition, RLTV’s operation on campus provides students with internships and the chance to be a part of a growing national network. The New Media Studio also uses the studio for production projects for Studio clients.
Video field production services are also provided by The New Media Studio. We are equipped for multicamera and HD shooting and can create broadcast-quality productions in a wide range of distribution formats.
In addition, the Studio supports video distribution through streaming@UMBC, featuring on-demand streaming media of interest to the UMBC community. The offerings include lectures, broadcast segments and special features. Much of this content is also available through iTunes U, our academic site within Apple’s iTunes music store. The UMBC Arts Channel, broadcast on campus cable channel 2, features arts-related programming covering music, dance and visual arts, produced by students and faculty. Finally, UMBC's participation in the ResearchChannel brings select campus-produced programming to a national audience.
