Lab Schedules and Lab Cancellations

The Digital Print Lab operates with the help of work-study students. Although Digital Print Lab staff make every effort to keep the Lab hours consistent throughout each semester, there will be some times when the Lab will be closed during scheduled lab hours for training, servicing, or other extenuating circumstances. Lab hours do change from semester to semester. The most up-to-date scheduling information is always posted by the Lab door.

Calibrated Monitors

The monitors in the Digital Print Lab and four monitors in the Digital Video Imaging Lab (LeBel, Rm 126) are calibrated with the X-Rite ColorMunki to better mimic the digital printing process. The monitors are calibrated on a bi-weekly basis. Calibrated monitors allow students to soft proof their images prior to printing.

Digital Lab – CALIBRATED MONITORS

Computers 5,6,7 & 8 in the Digital Video Imaging Lab have calibrated monitors that can be used for soft-proofing images that will be printed on the Epson 9890.

To access the calibrated monitors in DVIL contact Chris Blais, Digital Technician, (519) 253-3000 Ext. 2832

A self-serve flat-bed scanner (13” x 17” scanning bed) is available during regular lab hours on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • Use a Mylar sheet on the glass if you’re scanning anything other than dry paper
  • Use a Mylar sheet if you’re scanning objects.
  • If you’re scanning anything wet bring 2 sheets of your own Mylar to protect both the glass and the inside of the cover.
  • Note: Slide and negative scanning is not available on this scanner, but is available on scanners in the DVIL
