BrandStar Donates LED Volume Wall to Lynn University in Boca Raton
The donation will enhance the school’s Communication and Design Programs
Lynn University’s Boca Raton campus has named its TV studio “BrandStar Studios at Lynn University” after BrandStar donated and installed an LED Volume Wall to give students unparalleled access to the latest virtual production technology. Students using the studio can gain experience in real-time compositing, which combines multiple images to form a single, cohesive image using the Unreal Engine. It also caters to aspiring developers, artists, designers, gamers, journalists, content creators and storytellers by enhancing their virtual production skills.
“Students who are looking to dive into the production industry will get a one-of-a-kind opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment,” Andrea Kott says, Vice President of BrandStar Studios, who is also responsible for the overall studio operations at BrandStar.
BrandStar, a fully horizontally and vertically integrated production company, will also provide a Streaming, Screening and Idea Lab at Lynn, mentorship and career development opportunities for students.
“We are delighted to have established such a broad collaboration with Lynn University,” Mark Alfieri says, CEO of BrandStar. “By helping to augment the school’s offerings, we are going to fast-track their student’s skills, specifically within the rapidly evolving world of virtual and mixed reality.”
Graduates of Lynn’s Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn College of Communication and Design typically seek positions in the TV, film and production industry. BrandStar’s contributions will enhance the tools, mentorships and guidance to support students’ learning at Lynn.
“The partnership with BrandStar is the perfect alliance for us to further innovate our students’ education, with cutting-edge technology and hands-on experience,” Cesar Santalo says, College of Communication and Design Dean. “Lynn’s communication and design programs are on the forefront of technology and our connections with well-respected, professional organizations help us prepare our students for an ever-changing industry.”
