The Media Technology Centre is a very high end multimedia lab, completed with a fully digital television studio. The Centre has a direct connection to the fibre backbone of the school network and has a dedicated OS X Raid Server that is capable of writing data to its 2.47TB drives at 75MB per second. Equipped with four G5 dual 2GHz CPU workstations, three G5 2.5 GHz CPU workstations, ten dual 1GHz G4 workstations and eight G4 eMacs, the lab is a powerful studio for computing applications.
In addition to the multimedia Mac workstations, there are two G4 workstations, one in the TV Studio Audio Control Room and one in the Edit Suite dedicated to audio recording using Digi Design ProTools hardware and software for multi-track and MIDI recording. The Production Control Room is equipped with Video Toaster systems hosted by Dell dual 2 GHz workstation. All video production works can be recorded to DV tape or written in uncompressed video format to the Raid Server. Editing post facilities include iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Speed Razor Pro and Toaster Edit. Animation software in use includes Flash and Lightwave.
The room is also equipped with a high-end Radio Booth that runs the school's online radio station Clive Radio. The radio booth is equipped with two radio quality microphones, audio mixer, a signal destribution system, encoders, samplers, and a Dell Server running the radio management system which airs the radio stream at a CD-quality sound.
Students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 take courses in Communications Technology which provide a focus for skills in graphics, computer animation, desktop publishing, audio and video production and live event television production. As part of curriculum work, students produce content for this web site as well as documenting such events as The Christmas Concert, Chinese New Year Concerts and Evening of the Arts performances. Much of the IT production capability is integrated in coursework across the curriculum and examples can currently be found in Geography, Science, English, Drama, Science and Physical Education courses.
