The School has computer laboratories in both the Film and Sonic Arts buildings. The labs have a cluster of Apple Macs which provide audio, video, word-processing and related items of software to support study on the undergraduate pathways.
The School is also using the University's recently installed HP High-Performance Computer cluster. This is one of the most powerful computer clusters for parallel processing in Europe and staff and students from the School are using it for audio/video related rendering projects. The HP Cluster is an Itanium II based system with 21 dual nodes and 2 quad nodes with all nodes connected using gigaethernet.
