ITP is a state-of-the-art multimedia production center located in New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. It is housed in a 15,000-square-foot complex in which a turn-of-the-century industrial loft has been transformed into a striking high-technology studio. Students can reserve a wide variety of digital production equipment including high-end Mac and PC multimedia workstations and digital audio, video, and MIDI workstations utilizing the latest software tools. Also featured is a construction workshop for physical prototyping, including a machine shop, firmware programming stations, and electronics prototyping tools. All classrooms and presentation spaces support networked Macs and PCs with high-speed Internet connections, computer projection and sound reinforcement. A secure wireless network has also been established in the department for student use.

New York City, the richest communications environment in the world, provides the ideal location for the department, which is situated at New York University’s Washington Square Center in Greenwich Village.
