The Multimedia Project Studio (MPS) is your place to go for production of multimedia, audio, and video content.

Winter Break 2020 and Spring 2021 Semester Updates:

The MPS is open and available for the Winter Break 2020 and Spring 2021 semester, with a few updates and changes to policy and access.  To comply with the Duke Compact, we’ve removed a few workstations and separated them to ensure safe social distancing. The maximum occupancy of the space is now determined by the number of workstations. Please only enter the lab if there are open workstations - if all computers are in use, please come back later.

Main Space

The lab features high-end, integrated hardware and software that encourages imaginative creation and editing of graphics, web pages, audio, video and 3D. Production tools include the latest Apple iMacs, industry standard software such as Apple's Final Cut Pro, Motion, Compressor and the full Adobe Creative Cloud Suite as wells as a compliment of popular 3D modeling titles such as Rhino, Fusion 360, Blender and AutoCAD.

Side Rooms

A VR development room (unavailable until further notice due to COVID-19 protocols) is equipped with 3d scanners and a VR development Oculus Rift system. The self-service video production studio with green screen and audio booth rooms are perfect for recording videos and podcasts. These side rooms are available by reservation only - see “Open Hours” below for details.

Open Hours

The MPS Main Space is open whenever Bostock Library is open.  See the Library’s website for up to date information.

The Side Rooms are available to reserve by logging to your Duke mail through mail.duke.edu. Go to your calendar and invite the resource you want to use below using the email address. You will receive an email confirmation that your request is accepted or denied. A staff member will meet you at the beginning and end of your timeslot to provide access to these otherwise locked side rooms. Please use provided cleaning supplies to wipe down contact surfaces before and after use.
