What Is The Digital Media Center? As a part of Academic Services, the Digital Media Center helps School of Dental Medicine Faculty develop and integrate new media for educational purposes. The Center also assists faculty with poster design and other graphical displays of research. Current projects include but are not limited to digitization of slide collections (scanning), video production, poster design, Web site design and development of animation. The center also offers individual tutorials in Photoshop, PowerPoint, Dreamweaver, and other applications by appointment.

What we don't do:

  • The DMC is not able to assist you with your computer, peripherals or software applications. For this service you may email or phone the OIR Help Desk ( sdm-help@buffalo.edu ; 829-2056).
  • We do not have a color printer nor are we able to make copies for you.
  • We do not loan equipment.
  • We do not create media for personal needs, only for professional (teaching/research) needs.

The Center, located in 260J Squire Hall, is professionally equipped with a digital camera, digital video camera, digital intra-oral camera, large scale poster printer, video digitizer and multiple scanners. Appointments are encouraged to ensure that faculty receive appropriate attention and assistance.   Please email sdmmedia@buffalo.edu to set up an appointment.

*It's best not to wait until the last day to drop off your poster for printing. Things happen. Printers break down, other individuals may be ahead of you and you may have to wait.

Best Practice:

  • If you need assistance with your design make an appointment to work with staff well in advance of the printing deadline.
  • Bring your poster in at least a week before the printing deadline to ensure it is printed in time and to your liking.
*The Digitial Media Center is funded by the Office of the Dean.
