Library Equipment

The Digital Media (Mac) Lab has installed four Wacom Cintiqs for creating digital illustrations and animations: a Wacom Cintiq 24HD, two Cintiq 13HD Pen & Touch Displays, and a Cintiq Companion Hybrid.

There are also three Wacom Intuos5 and three Wacom Intuos3 pen tablets available for checkout.

 


 

New projectors and interactive white boards have been installed in the library's Digital Media Lab and Group Study Room. They are available to staff and students for presentations and training.

The Epson 455Wi BrightLink Interactive Projector and the LCD projector use the same technology as the Wii gaming system to interact between the new SmartBoard screen, the projector and a computer. Presenters can connect their computer via USB to the projector, which can project files from various software programs including Excel, Powerpoint, Word, Adobe PDF and keynote to display documents or photos.

Interactive pens are also available for use on the SmartBoard, turning it into an interactive white board that can be used along with documents displayed by the projector. Presenters can use their phone or computer to project on the SmartBoard.

Use the sign-up sheet on the door or see one of the library staff to reserve the Group Study Room. If needed, you can also ask them to check out the remote control or whiteboard pens.

A tutorial for connecting and calibrating the Epson Brightlink is available on the IMS Website

 


 

The BookScan Station is located by the east entrance of the library.

"The BookScan Station Document Center is designed for high-volume, high-traffic areas where productivity and image quality are paramount. The state-of-the-art, LED-based, energy-saving, Book-Edge scanner scans an 11" x 17" page in under 5 seconds in black and white at 200dpi. The Intel 3.3GHz Core-i3 processor converts the scanned page into a searchable PDF file format in less than 4 seconds. Stack up to 50-pages into the iVina BulletScan S400's automatic document feeder and watch it outpace digital copiers in color as well as black and white."
