Cutting-edge IMRC building opens spring 2013
New media building features advanced technologies and innovative learning spaces
The new Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center, or IMRC, features studios for traditional arts as well as a computer-driven 3d router, video production lab, and high performance computer cluster.
New Media professor and Intermedia director Owen Smith secured a 3.69 million dollar bond for construction in 2009 from the Maine Technology Institute and MTAF fund. This spring the project he has spearheaded is coming to fruition.
Smith described the IMRC as "a living, working building that strengthens our community of scholars and artists and that supports a creative culture in which students are experimenting, interacting, and learning 24 hours a day."
The 15,000 square-foot building includes such innovations as a CNC router and a multipurpose Adaptive Presentation Environment. A rich-media classroom designed to facilitate bottom-up learning features four separate student tables with associated whiteboards and wireless laptop-to-screen connections.
Several New Media classes are already slated to take advantage of these advanced facilities in the coming term. IMRC has a dedicated Web site at www.IMRCcenter.com.
