Introducing: Media Suites

It’s never been easier to start your next media project in the Learning Studio. This semester we’re introducing our brand new Media Suites—three reservable spaces focused on media creation, from filming and editing video to recording and editing audio.

Two of these rooms are located in our former Studio rooms. Studio 1 becomes Media 2: home to our redesigned One Button Studio, with upgrades to lighting, video quality, and with added curtain options. And Studio 2 is now Media 3: a professional audio suite with an upgraded digital interface and two studio mics connected to a 27-inch iMac. Whether you’re recording a quick video or launching a new podcast, these updated spaces are the place to start.

And first but not least is Media 1, a brand new space set to open later this year. Media 1 is geared toward student filmmakers, with a production-grade Mac to handle video up to 4K, along with a large flat-screen TV for playing back your creations at-scale.

The Learning Studio has always been a campus home for creators at ACU, and we can’t wait to see how you maximize our new Media Suites to make and share messages that matter.

Reserve a Media Suite, or any of our other group rooms, for up to two hours at a time up to a week in advance, at acu.edu/ls.
