A state-of-the-art Media Studio facility is now the new addition to our ACS Athens campus, a unique element for K-12 educational institutions. This was marked by the official opening of the "Suheil Sabbagh Media Studio" which took place on March 29, 2017 at the ACS Athens campus with a celebration which included honoring its benefactor, Mr. Suheil Sabbagh.
This is a historic day for ACS Athens, as we are the only K-12 institution in Greece, Europe and the region with such a facility.
In addition to resources equipping students and faculty to produce and broadcast radio and television projects, this cutting-edge studio space will support all classes in using media as a means to communicate. Mr. Steve Medeiros, Dean of Academic Affairs, explained with enthusiasm how students will be able to work within and think critically about the modern and ever-changing media landscape, including journalism and communication, and will learn to use multiple professional skills in doing so.
The Suheil Sabbagh Media Studio includes:
- A 35 sq.m. green room that offers unlimited applications for virtual sets
- A control room with Tricaster® 460 production system
- 2 editing workstations, and
- A lab setup of up to 10 workstations for students and faculty projects
The Suheil Sabbagh Media Studio will also become the new home for faculty research initiatives where curriculum with experiential knowledge can be created. Educators will be able to capitalize on the facilities of the studio for the creation and production of all forms of media, including print, broadcast, radio, film and multimedia storytelling.
I am proud of how far the school has come,
The sky’s the limit!
