About the Lyons New Media Centre

The Lyons New Media Centre is a natural expansion of what was the Lyons Instructional Media Centre, which served the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Centre is a media space for the innovative creation and use of new and traditional media in teaching, learning and research at McMaster. Work spaces include:

  • video and audio editing workstations (all equipped with Adobe Creative Cloud)
  • 2 edit suites
  • consultation room
  • a classroom
  • green screens and other backdrops for filming/photography
  • a Help Desk to provide assistance to students, faculty and staff
  • video gaming room

The Centre features a large video wall to showcase the media creation process, to highlight faculty and student research and to display faculty and student media projects.  The video wall may also be used for special media rich presentations.
