Leitch, UWaterloo open multimedia communications lab
Leitch Technology Corp. and the University of Waterloo will build one of the largest and most advanced multimedia communications labs in the country, it was announced June 6. Leitch has pitched in $330,000 in cash and equipment for the lab and much of the infrastructure, including audio and video conversion and interface equipment, test generators and a 3D non-linear editing system. The facility, which will temporarily occupy 650 square feet in the school’s electrical and computer engineering department, will be expanded to more than 1,100 square feet and is scheduled to open in Waterloo’s new Centre for Environmental and Information Technology building in September 2003.
