The IET Media Lab offers three types of scanners:

  • Document Scanners - automatically scans loose sheets of paper through a sheet feeder (up to 50 at a time). Scans can be saved in a variety of formats including PDF, jpg, Word doc and Excel Documents
  • Flatbed Scanners - a versatile scanner, this scanner can scan individual sheets of paper, pages from a book or even objects placed on the flatbed. In addition, adapters are available to scan various types/sizes of negative or slide film.
  • Slide/Negative Scanner - dedicated slide or negative scanner. Can scan from a color or black and white 35mm negative or mounted slides.


Both entry-level video editing and advanced professional video editing software are available. iMovie is available for beginning video editing. For more advanced users, Apple's Final Cut Pro Studio is available.

On specialized Video Stations, dual monitors are available allowing more room for video timelines, bins and menus. In addition, the second monitor can act as a High Definition display when editing HD footage.


The IET Media Lab has one audio room with a Mac workstation available for mixing and recording sound. The room contains a microphone, MIDI keyboard, speakers, and analog tape recorder.

Color Printing

Color printing is available in the IET Media Lab at a cost of $1.00 per page. Color printing is priced per side, meaning a two-sided color printout costs $2. Color printing is billed on a separate account from regular black and white printing.
