AV & Tech


Moved to a larger building in 2013, ACRE’s Audio Visual Technology lab is a hub of activity at the farm. ACRE staff has custom built super-fast mac/windows/linux-capable computers with all sorts of video and image editing software, as well as 3D rendering tools. Audio editing software is also available here, allowing artists to experiment with tracks made in the recording studio and elsewhere.

ACRE’s space for electronics, robotics and 3D prototyping holds workshops on a variety of subjects that are designed to introduce newbies to electronics and advanced software. For those with more experience, we try to provide a wide array of tools and equipment and can offer assistance with all kinds of projects. In addition to the things you’d expect to find in any general purpose electronics lab, some unique capabilities of our space are: 3D printing and scanning, basic robotics, and power electronics for various types of lighting. We stock all the common electronic components like resistors, capacitors, discrete transistors and commonly-used ICs.

Equipment: 2 Fast Mac/Windows/Linux Capable computers with full range of up-to-date software, Canon 7D Camera, various lenses, video and photo tripods,  3 video projectors, Tascam DR-40 4-Track Handheld Digital Audio Recorder, soldering irons, circuit-board prototyping tools, Arduinos, electronics test instruments (oscilloscope, etc.), power supplies,  Reprap Huxley 3D Printer (can print objects up to 5.5” x 5.5” x 4.3” in PLA plastic),  Cubify Sense 3D Scanner
