FACILITIES

The Advanced Laboratory for Visual Anthropology is a fully furnished digital cinema production and post-production facility. It houses a Red one and a Red Scarlet camera, a full suite of prime and zoom lenses, professional wired and wireless microphones, still photographic equipment, field lighting solutions, field data storage solutions and all the hardware necessary for cinema production in anthropological contexts. 

Our post-production facilities include Mac Pro towers with multiple non-linear editing software platforms, calibrated speakers and monitors for sound mixing and color grading, Blu-ray and DVC Pro mastering hardware, and a formidable data storage, processing and archiving system. Our 32 TB raid subsystem is connected to our editing workstations over an XSAN based, Fibre Channel, local area network. Our data is incrementally backed up and archived to LTO-5 tape. 

Our most important assets are the anthropological researchers and technical staff who are devoted to communicating the insights of anthropological research to the general public.
