Digital media centre is an important component of modern university information environment. Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Politechnic Institute isn't an exception. Recently created Media centre has to become an integral part of university media space. This is a platform where all university media resources will cooperate actively ( especially, public mass media relations department, newspapers "Kyiv Politechnic" , technical study methods department etc.).
It worths mentioning about the first attempts of video content system usage in educational process were made by university direction lond ago in 1982. Broadcast centre under management of O.R. Rosluy has started working since September,1 in 1982, thanks to Japanese colleagues who had provided needed equipment. He worked on searching for new forms and information process methods . Video content , filmed by creative team , was intended for educational process usage. Particularly, there were some videofilms prepared: "Few words about geometry" , "Physics in video experiments", popular-science film about problems and prospects of robotechnology development etc. Unfortunately, in rebellious 90s Broadcast centre stopped his existence and there is only little part of filmed content left . And thanks to efforts of a small enthusiastic group from technical study methods department, who have been keeping the archive during all these years, filming new content and capturing all university events,not all this inheritance was lost.
