Over the past several years, the Mayborn School has partnered with UNT's Media Arts Department to completely refurbish the studio space in Chilton Hall. Thanks to valuable donations from area media partners and generous donations from supporters, we now have a new television production facility on the UNT campus, to complement existing facilities in the Media Arts Building.
This new state-of-the-art studio gives students the full visual media experience - from anchoring and broadcasting news to shooting, editing and producing final video for news programming, documentaries and filmmaking.
Classroom for introductory journalism courses such as Instruction in Software Applications Used Within the Journalism Profession, Writing for Broadcast News Media, Advanced Broadcast News Writing and Reporting, Online Journalism and Public Relations Writing. The classroom is equipped with current iMacs installed with software such as InDesign, Photoshop, Final Cut, iLife, iWork, Dreamweaver, and Microsoft Office.
The Mac Lab was founded and originally funded by long-time journalism professor Jim Rogers and is available for all Mayborn School of Journalism students.
Located within the Mac Lab are current iMacs installed with specialized software relevant for print production, photojournalism, broadcast news, advertising, and public relations. Some titles include InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut, Adobe Premiere, Audacity, iLife, iWork, and Photo Mechanic. Black & white as well as color printing are offered for class use only. Also available for use are scanners, headphones, Blu-ray burners, card readers, and other peripherals. The facility also houses four Dell Windows PCs for use on specialized assignments by broadcast students.
Lab assistants are on hand to assist and answer questions about software applications.
Used by broadcast news and online journalism courses and their associated audio and video editing labs. Students in this classroom shoot and edit video for internet and TV news broadcast programs on NTDaily TV and on the campus station Denton Community TV (DCTV), operated by the Mayborn School of Journalism.
