Media:Scape Table

Two media:scape stations have been installed on the 5th floor of the NYU Midtown Center for student use. The couches have privacy shields to allow groups to work collaboratively without interruptions, and without disturbing classes nearby. The two stations are located in the northwest and southwest corners of the floor, and are for use on a first-come, first-served basis. The connectors ("pucks") and power outlets are located in the tables, beneath the flip-up metal doors. The power button on the table will turn on the TV, and there will be basic instructions on screen for connecting. If you have any questions or problems connecting, speak with library staff members during open Service Desk hours.

Media:scape was designed for a “walk-up and connect” experience. Open. Connect. Share.
