The media laboratory offers extensive facilities for high-quality professional film, television studio and sound studio productions. It is available for teaching and research at the Institute of Media Technology and comprises three main functional rooms: recording room, video and audio control room. An additional editing room can be used for meetings. Students can familiarize themselves with modern digital camera and processing technology during their training.

A professional video editing suite is available for processing studio recordings (non-linear video editing, color grading, compositing, encoding and authoring). A separate audio control room with a voice-over booth allows for high-quality audio productions as well as dubbing work for existing video material.
