Multimedia Research Lab - E2 Room 506 Project
-- BobVitale? - 06 Jul 2006

Background

A Computer Engineering Dept lab (Room 3313) was to be set aside for distance learning concepts. This room was reallocated during assignment. Prof Pat Mantey of CITRIS has offered E2-506 for the purpose of this Multimedia Research Lab

Some funding from the MEL of the E2 building was provided for equipment in this lab. Funding for computers in this lab was reduced from 75,000 to 32,500 (by Asst Dean Genes and Dean Kang) to provide funding for building furniture and networking equipment.
