The Digital Media Studio offers a wide range of support for video production. With a studio appointment Lehigh University students, faculty, and staff can film interviews, record audio narration, and utilize the green screen.

Afterwards they can use our editing tools to complete the work and output it to various formats such as DVD, Ensemble streaming, etc.
