As well, many external devices are available to assist with digital media project completion including scanners, printers, video transfer decks (for VHS, DVD, and mini-DVs), tripods, lighting kits, and different types of digital video cameras (for both still- and motion-capture images).

The Digital Media Lab is located in the lower level of the western wing in the Yokum Communications Lecture Hall building next to the Audio Lab facilities.
