Peltz Digital Media Lab

The Digital Media Lab (DML) is an enclosed room with a green screen wall and outfitted with hardware and software designed to help users record, create, and edit digital recordings (audio, movie, images, etc.). If you wish to digitize your old media (vinyl records, film, slides, VHS, etc.), please book the Digitization Room.
