New Media Equipment
July 11, 2013
The Department of Informatics has recently made some equipment purchases that will greatly enhance the Department's media abilities. This purchase includes three Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR cameras equipped with tripods, wireless microphones, and audio recorders. These cameras are broadcast-quality audio/video capture kits and are super light, portable, and versatile. Such cameras are designed for converged-media journalists--those who very often work the field without the assistance of a photographer, videographer, or audio specialist.
This equipment will be used in conjunction with the newly formed, Tiger Media Initiative.
