Christie® visual technology solutions are playing a key role in visualizing the University of Waterloo’s mission to intersect technology, business and art under the Faculty of Arts programs – a first in Canada – at its new Stratford, Ontario campus.
Picture this: St. Michael Secondary School students sitting in a University of Waterloo Stratford campus classroom, snapping photos with high-end digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras, uploading them to state-of-the-art iMac computers, and processing them with industry-standard software.
That image came into sharp focus Wednesday as students from St. Michael’s arts and culture specialist high-skills major program and communication technology class participated in a day-long, hands-on digital photography workshop at the university.
Three-storey-high fireworks kicked off the grand opening Tuesday of the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus.
Of course, like the projects and research that will be conducted in the new St. Patrick Street building, the fireworks were digital, displayed in stunning resolution on the building’s centrepiece, the tallest installation of Christie MicroTiles in North America.
Yesterday was a big day for Waterloo's Stratford Campus as the magnificent new building and digital arts facility was officially unveiled. Already housing two Faculty of Arts programs, the Bachelor of Global Business and Digital Arts and the Master of Digital Experience Innovation, the building is home-base to 117 students this year.
When University of Waterloo president Feridun Hamdullahpur looked behind him at the towering Christie MicroTile wall at the front of the new Stratford campus, he asked a question that was likely on the minds of many gathered for the grand opening Tuesday.
