Media and Project Lab
The Media and Project Lab is room 210 on level 2 of the Huxley Building.
Equipment in the Media Lab
There are 8 brand new project PCs, to be allocated to individual or group project students (Undergrads or MScs) - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you need a project PC, explaining thoroughly why you need one and ensuring that your project supervisor agrees, bearing in mind that Academic Committee stipulated that 95% of all projects should be done on standard lab machines without requiring exclusive or privileged access.
In addition, there are a further 8 "media" PCs, intended to have games consoles, MIDI keyboards etc attached to them, and 7 "cider" Apple Macs intended for Mac-based projects involving iPads or iPhones.
There are then various games consoles to plug into the "medias" and the "ciders":
* 3 Microsoft Xbox360 consoles
* 2 Sony Playstations (but 1 development tool!)
* 2 Apple iPads
When you come to borrow a device you will be responsible for it and you will be asked to sign an internal CSG record book.
The Xbox360 SDK is called XNA Game Studio. You will need to register for a (free) Student App Hub Membership. Please follow the steps below:
