Digital Media Center


Digital Media Center

The DMC is a multimedia lab space as well as an equipment, printing and knowledge resource for students interested in exploring creative uses of emerging media and technology to communicate their ideas.


In addition to our highly-skilled professional staff, the DMC is staffed by a cadre of 24 well-trained student staff who work with members at every level of their projects. The lab itself consists of 18 high-end dual-boot workstations with a full complement of commercial and professional-grade software for completing tasks related to audio, video, photography, graphics, animation, 3-D modeling and design, web-based and multimedia projects. We also provide specialized workspaces and equipment for professional audio recording and editing/mastering, high-demand gaming, simulation and modeling, and maker/hacker activities. We provide resale materials necessary for archival-grade photography and printing, as well as large-format and 3-D printing services.

The DMC is open to all full-time students enrolled in the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering. Make! Learn! Play!

Our Mission:

By promoting the use of emerging technologies in students’ scholarly and creative works, the Brown Foundation Digital Media Center prepares life-long learners to confidently master new technologies and to disseminate works that effectively communicate their ideas.
