InterTech 1 is filled with industry-leading talent, housing tenants from a film studio to pharmaceutical companies. That talent passes through the labs of the DMI, where students are imagining, designing and bringing ideas on paper to motion media onscreen. Classroom professional workstations offer Adobe, Foundry and Autodesk software, including programs like Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, The Foundry Nuke, Autodesk Maya and Unreal Game Engine. Students can access all workstations and software at all times in the DMI 24-hour Flex Lab.
The DMI also offers a 1600-square-foot studio, complete with an industry-standard green screen with a curved cyc wall and professional lighting equipment that ensure the best compositing experience for students. The stage also boasts a multi-actor motion capture system paired with high-quality digital cinema cameras capable of producing stunning 4K footage. The DMI features an industrial-grade gigabit network with high-speed switching. Students work with systems that create, serve via an Isilon Storage System and render digital imagery on a 450 core Cisco Blade render farm.
