The scanner is set up with a high-performance Mac computer and on an adjustable-height, accessible desk. This workstation has the basic software needed to scan and edit image files.

  • We recommend you bring a USB or external hard drive if you are scanning many large files to speed up the process.

The DSC provides access to a variety of media production software on our high-performance computers (HPC). This includes Audacity, Adobe Creative Suite, Hindenburg, Reaper, and Autodesk tools for Animation and VR. These computers have a large RAM capacity to handle data-heavy media projects. You must book a time to use the computers.
