Southern Oregon Digital Media Center

Renewed. Revamped. Recharged.

The Digital Media Center at Southern Oregon University provides a space where people, tools and technology blend together to inspire relevant and compelling media for the 21st century. The center serves both the university and the larger community in Southern Oregon and the Rogue River Valley. The DMC builds on and expands the mission of SOU’s Rogue Valley Community Television organization (RVTV), and also works closely with the university’s Center for Emerging Media & Digital Arts (EMDA) and other academic departments. These include Communication, Art, Computer Science and more.

For more details about the DMC's mission and practices, please see our strategic plan and our public engagement whitepaper.

The DMC's 8500-square-foot facility includes a digital media teaching classroom and lab with 20 multimedia workstations, a state-of-the-art television production studio with a permanent lighting grid, a digital master control center for playback and archiving of programming, and an equipment room with cameras, lighting and sound equipment available for student check-out.

The DMC empowers our students, our governmental partners and regional enterprises in our community by building and operating a state-of-the-art center for convergent media, cinema studies, scholarly research, interdisciplinary teaching and public outreach.
