Lublin, Poland

The venue

Maria Curie Sklodowska University’s ART/MEDIA INCUBATOR (link) is a center for creative activities involving the use of modern technologies. It is the only such institution in eastern Poland. As such, the center offers its state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to students of Lublin’s schools and universities as well as artists, people in the media and other users of digital technology. In doing so, the center serves as an important component of the space for dialogue between education, culture, art and media.

The Incubator’s features include:

  • a television studio, with facilities for both simultaneous live broadcasting and recording as well as editing and post-production – such as combining real and computer-generated imagery, multi-track audio recording, adding voice-over narration and dubbing the soundtrack, non-linear editing with graphics and animation, as well as simultaneous monitoring of recorded footage (with soundtrack) during post-production. The studio uses two consoles, TV1 and TV2, for HD editing;
  • a radio production and broadcasting unit;
  • a computer lab equipped with sixteen stations for students learning audio and video material editing.

The Incubator also includes a small theatre that can accommodate film screenings in 3D, as well as lectures and conferences, music concerts, theatrical performances and other live shows involving audience participation. Equipped with a wallbox like those used in TV studios, the space is suitable for recording events and producing original TV shows.
