With media:scape, OIT provides a specialized high-tech collaboration space at Stinson Collaborative Commons.  Combining the timeless concept of a round table together with the technology to connect several laptops, media:scape creates an ideal collaborative setup for small groups.  With up to five connections at a time, it gives each member equal ability to engage and contribute.
An elegant natural way to literally connect your ideas, discuss solutions, share your work and save everything to disk.
So bring your laptops and start collaborating!

Easy to Use!

Built for comfort and ease of use, media:scape requires no special software, no training manuals and no complicated setup.  Just walk up and connect!
