MONTCLAIR, NJ - During a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 26, Montclair State University officials opened a new, high-tech, multimedia School of Communication and Media Building.

“We believe this is the most technologically advanced media and production facility of any university in North America and that it is, in fact, more advanced that many professional facilities,” Montclair State University President Susan A. Cole said.

The new building, which has been dubbed “Hollywood East,” is designed to equip students with the 21st century tools they will need to be successful in the field, university officials express.

Cole described the building as “a tool box” that will “unleash and enable our students’ education and creativity.”

The building features a range of tools and resources – from broadcast-ready 4K and HD studios and control rooms to multimedia labs and an advanced audio production center – designed and implemented through a strategic partnership between the University and Sony Electronics’ Professional Solutions Americas.

Several NJ Legislators were in attendance for the ceremony and tour of the facility, including Sen. Loretta Weinberg, Asm. Tom Giblin, Asw. Mila Jasey, along with Sony Professional Solutions Americas President Katsunori Yamanouchi. 

He expressed that Sony was proud to play a pivotal role in creating products and active learning solutions that give students the experience and professional training they need to succeed.
