The Front Lab is used by students for a variety of media development projects. Students typically use this area to scan images, OCR scan documents, edit pictures, print color documents, print posters and write papers. See our software list!

The Front Lab contains the following equipment:

Computers: 

13 HP EliteOne 800 All-In-One's make up the front lab area. These computers are packed with power! They run Windows 7 64 bit with hardware like 16 GB of RAM, an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU@ 2.90GHz speed processor, and 60 GB SSD and 500 GB SATA hard drive space. The All-In-Ones bring in more mobility and freedom to be creative since the screens are now touch enabled.
