University of Florida Opens News and Science Facilities With Help from Harris
The University of Florida recently dedicated two new facilities with participation from Harris. The Melbourne, Fla., broadcast equipment vendor said it donated $3 million to the school for renovating the Computer and Information Science Engineering building, and for the establishment of research and faculty funding endowments.
UF also opened a new 21st Century News Laboratory in the College of Journalism and Communications Center for Media Innovation and Research. The lab, opened Sept. 24, is outfitted with high-definition production and broadcast equipment from Harris, which also assisted with the design. It’s said to encompass the “multimedia environment typical of today’s commercial broadcasting operations.”
