Digital imaging lab coming to campus
by Linda Deneen

Thanks to the efforts of Chancellor Martin and others, UMD is building a digital imaging laboratory on campus. This research facility will be available to faculty and research staff for the purpose of developing visual images that display data, designs, and information in new ways.

Silicon Graphics, Inc., demonstrated two pieces of equipment:

Sun Microsystems also showed two pieces of equipment:
