The Multimedia Room is used by patrons largely for working on video editing projects. Furthermore, each workstation has a variety of peripheral input devices allowing patrons to capture anything from VHS tapes, DVDs to miniDV tapes. This room can also be used by staff to convert media from one form or another to DVDs given the fact that there are up to six DVD recorders dispersed throughout the room. Scanning is another activity that can be preformed in this room; there are multiple scanners located throughout the Multi Media Room.
The Adobe Pro Editing suite is installed on each workstation. This allows patrons to perform sophisticated editing and authoring of digital media content. Patrons most frequently use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and Encore CS6 when working on their video editing projects.
