The Television Studio houses some of the most advanced equipment in the industry. It includes audio and video editing suites, a full control room overlooking the studio area, and the latest software for graphics, video and audio production. Students produce audio and video projects that are professional in quality.
The Digital Media: Film, TV and Radio Major has multiple opportunities for students to advance their skills by participating in extracurricular activities. The Rider University Network (RUN) is the student-run production service, which produces a weekly news magazine program. Students write, produce and direct programs distributed over Rider's campus-wide cable system. At 107.7 The Bronc, Rider's radio station, students from any major can create their own programs, which are broadcast from the Bart Luedeke Center.
The interactive digital media labs feature 38 Macintosh computers with the latest operating system. The computers run industry-standard multimedia software packages, including current versions of Adobe products, DigiDesign, and Microsoft. The labs are also equipped with digital projection systems to demonstrate writing, visual, video, and audio principles and techniques.
All computers in the labs are linked, so that students can produce, store, transfer, and share projects over a sophisticated digital network. The labs combine a professional journalism environment with a media-rich workspace, with students arranged in pods that allow both collaboration and individual work. This sophisticated teaching and learning environment, which in some ways emulates a newsroom, serves the students as they produce professional-quality portfolios and web and multimedia projects.
