Sept. 13, 2011 – The Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech will house the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology with an array of labs and studios devoted to creative technologies and innovative curriculum design. Within this area of the center also will be located the multimedia studio, production control room, newsroom, and associated classroom in support of the Department of Communication.
Consisting of the latest digital production capabilities, the multimedia center will enable high definition production programming, news production, and digital journalism across many platforms. Virginia Tech’s Department of Communication will occupy the space in an academic capacity with curriculum including multimedia journalism and television production. The location of the multimedia center in the Center for the Arts, however, will offer opportunities for integrated research and performances that will be distributed within the building walls, across campus, and throughout the community and state.
