IDSC Hardware

All workstations in the IDSC lab are equipped with a standard set of hardware. Workstations are further divided into specialty areas for media development (i.e. web, graphics, video) and include additional peripheral equipment (i.e. scanners, VCR's, MiniDV). Both Mac and Windows platforms have equivalent hardware and software allowing lab users to work in the operating system of their choice. In addition to workstation hardware, we offer a wide variety of printers. Additional equipment is available for in-lab checkout.
