Digital Media Center Green Screen

In the past year, the Digital Media Center video production studio has recorded more and more productions each day, specifically using the green screen. The DMC used to live life with an old, small, fabric green screen. It was hard to work with, and frequently inconvenient. Then DMC received a new, Pro Cyc green screen provided by Tech Fee funding, and everything changed. Students love the new green screen. It allows for a better and cleaner key which in turn heightens the production value of each video segment. The Video Production classes have incorporated the green screen into the course. The new green screen is being used 5 days a week to record segments like weather, election updates, sports updates and many more.“It’s incredible, and we couldn’t live without it!​” –Sarah Renee Henry
