History of NMC

The TU Delft Library NewMedia Centre has an impressive history in creating, producing and publishing scientific multimedia content. From the beginning back in 1973 we produced graphic designs and movies for our university, and we still do. What changed is our workflow.
Currently delivering 20.000 web lectures and hundreds of knowledge clips for online masters, blended bachelors and lots of worldwide classes in EdX, but still going strong in graphic design and in creating images. 


Multimedia Services

After a  drastic austerity in 1999 the AVC was re-reorganized into an independent internal business unit facilitating media and communication services like photography, graphic design, print, AV technique and interactive programs. With it, the name changed into Multimedia Services to suit their core business.



Meantime, education changed and internet use grew rapidly, haunted by the WWW and broadband. The focus shifted to digital, capturing and publishing classes online like Collegerama.
For this reason, NMC developed a vision and workflow to produce didactical high quality attractive assets, as low cost as possible.

NewMedia Centre

In January 2013 NMC joined the TU Delft Library. A logical step with a library full of content to publish. Learning by progressive understanding resulting in a solid scenario for further development.

Nowadays, the NewMedia Centre operates as the epicenter of multimedia-design, for education, communication and research.

Our ambition is to establish a new standard in video, animation and graphic design in which we will never forgot our graphic design, photography and image factory roots.

COVID-19 measures:

Dear visitor,

As you all are aware of the latest covid measures announced by the prime minister on December 14, the board of the university announced the following: https://www.tudelft.nl/2020/tu-delft/coronavirus/

This has the following consequences for our NewMedia Centre:

  1. NMC will cancel/postpone all livestreams/location recordings/VR meetings/Collegerama requests until further notice.
    We believe that the NMC should make a minimal impact on campus presence and campus mobility, for our own safety and the safety of others.
  2. The studio recordings that are already in our agenda will continue, but with not more than two people present at the office.
  3. All DIY-studio’s will be closed until further notice.
  4. The VR Zone will be closed until January 19 but employees will be working from home. Please contact: vr-zone-lib@tudelft.nl if you have any questions regarding virtual or augmented reality.
