Media Work Stations

If you need assistance or training on specific software, please contact IMATS in advance and schedule an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org, 212-854-2418
Guidelines for Using Media Work Stations
Bring an external hard drive to save your work. Files saved on media workstations are removed periodically.
If you forgot your external drive, you have some options:
Check out a drive at the Equipment Room.
Store footage and other project files in your Google Drive or a Dropbox account.
If it the project is less than 2 gigabytes, you can email it to yourself using WeTransfer.com.
Please begin shutting down at least 30 minutes before the building closes.
IMATS has a digitization station where media can be transfered from VHS or mini-DV formats to digital files. We do not offer digitization services, but we can instruct you on how to use the digitization equipment. Media duplication must comply with copyright and intellectual property regulations.
