Welcome to the New Media Center

The NMC now offers faculty the ability to do voice-over lecture capture for courses. The audio room has soundproofing treatment, both MAC and PC as well as high-end digital recording devices. ScreenFlow for the MAC and Camtasia for the PC record any activity occurring on the monitor, while your voice is recorded using an attached microphone. The resulting recordings can be uploaded to Blackboard using Kaltura or YouTube.

The New Media Center (NMC) provides a fully staffed multimedia laboratory for the university community to access cutting-edge digital media technologies and receive instruction or assistance in their uses.

The NMC has been a focal point for online and offline multimedia content creation at Princeton since 1994. During weekday afternoons our doors are open to Princeton faculty, staff, and students, who would like to enhance their academic projects or simply create and edit digital content.

The New Media Center offers one-on-one assistance and training in hardware and software. We provide one to two hour training for small classes (under 30 students) in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Final Cut Pro. We also provide sales of blank DVDs and CDs. Color printing is available for a fee.  Student and department account numbers accepted as well as checks. We cannot accept cash or credit cards.

The New Media Center will digitize analog materials free of charge for use in current / upcoming courses and for research purposes upon request by a faculty member. Contact or drop by the NMC to learn more.

We also offer Roxen assistance. Please write to or call 258-6009 to make an appointment.

We have recently begun a free digitization service for faculty & staff who have analog media they would like to use for teaching or research. We will convert 35 mm slides, vinyl records, audio cassettes, VHS tapes and a variety of photographic film formats.  Contact Paula Brett at 258-6009 or

I thought I’d look into because we’ve had several requests at the NMC for students/lecturers who need to hold a video interview with a hiring company/college/university that is not within driving distance.
I’ve suggested using MSN Messenger, AIM or even Skype. It seemed some requestors did not feel comfortable installing new software onto their systems. I had heard of Tinychat and suggested it once. Let’s get testing.
You can use Twitter or Facebook acc
We recently had a client who had several .MTS files on an SDHC card that he wanted to convert to the .MP4 format and make available via his Blackboard course site.  Final Cut Pro can read these files as can the freeware VLC Media Player and MPEG Streamclip.  However neither VLC nor Mpeg could actually convert the files (they claim it, but we’ve tested it).
Rather than forcing the client to have to import to Final Cut Pro, export/convert, we found iSky
