Apple UK has revamped its digital-video education bundle, the Portable Digital Media Lab, replacing the 12-inch iBook with a 12-inch SuperDrive PowerBook.
The Lab also contains a Canon MV600i camcorder, a Canon IXUS V3 digital camera, and a software bundle comprising OS X, Final Cut Express, QuickTime, iCal, iChat, iLife, Safari, Acrobat Reader, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, Art Director's Toolkit, and FAXstf.
Apple describes the Lab as being “a mobile content-creation and editing suite that brings a radical new perspective to learning, giving pupils the freedom to document, discover and interact with the world around them in new and exciting ways”.
MacCentral reports that Apple is also offering free training in DV technology for educators. The Portable Digital Media Lab is available only from Apple UK’s educational divisions.
