WEXPtv Studio

The La Salle TV Studio is home to WEXPtv. WEXP is La Salle College High School’s student run media network.

Students produce a weekly 10-minute online broadcast focusing on life at La Salle. All students in the program get access to the Adobe Creative Cloud to create digital content at school and at home. You can view the show live online during the school year at www.youtube.com/wexptv.  

In addition to producing a live daily show, the TV studio and Multimedia Editing Computer Lab are an integral part of La Salle's Digital Multimedia Curriculum. La Salle offers three levels of Multimedia Production Courses: Multimedia Productions, Advanced Multimedia Productions and Multimedia Management. Students gain hands-on experience using the latest digital technology to shoot, edit and share digital content using the Adobe Creative Suite. To see examples of our student work visit the multimedia gallery and La Salle's YouTube Channel.

The TV Studio also serves as the centerpiece of the Sports Information Club - a club that updates the school community about the latest news about La Salle's Athletic department including video highlights, interviews, and podcasts with our coaches and athletes. You can find more info about the Sports Information Club at www.twitter.com/LaSalle_Sports.  

 

Data Center

Thirty virtual servers running Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 support the network. These thirty servers are in a virtual environment on eight physical host servers. Virtualization allows the servers to move between the eight physical machines. If one of the eight fails, the virtual servers are relocated to another physical server to continue running smoothly and without any down time noticed by teachers and students. Virtualization has also greatly reduced energy consumption as well as La Salle’s carbon footprint.

 

Staff

Technology Staff

The Office of Information Technology is staffed by individuals who not only have industry recognized certifications, but are committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise with students. In addition to their IT responsibilities, all members of the IT staff work with students in curricular and extracurricular programs.
