“The University of Hawaii West Oahu has completed construction on its new, $37 million creative media facility, UH officials announced Monday.
The 33,000 square-foot educational hub will be utilized by UH West Oahu students in the school’s academy for Creative Media once in-person classes resume. Some of the facility’s main features include a Dolby Atmos 100-seat screening room and mixing stage, an esports arena, post-production suites, an emerging media lab, incubator space, and an industry-standard sound stage.
The new facility also includes LED video wall display with seating risers and a cafe in the Roy and Hilda Takeyama Lobby, which can be used to display student work, welcome visitors, and host esports tournaments; interactive teaching boards; remote learning and video conferencing equipment; incubator space for collaboration and student and alumni-run companies; and a Mill shop with industrial equipment for set construction and design related projects, as well as a separate 3D maker space.” By Olivia Peterkin, Web Editor
