Bringing Media to the Masses
That's Denver Open Media
Denver Open Media (DOM) is the culmination of the Open Media Foundation's innovative vision to put the power of the media into the hands of the community. Designed to ensure all communities have the media and technology resources they need to engage in local and global communications, DOM offers cutting-edge video equipment, as well as audio and video distribution via the Internet and our radio station. DOM is not an independent entity, but a project supported by the Open Media Foundation, managed by the community. The Open Media Foundation is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to putting the power of media and technology into the hands of the people. In 2006, OMF modified its Board of Directors to permanently include two DOM member representatives.
We don't just empower content creation, Denver Open Media is also a hub for its distribution. The community can use our all-local radio station and our video live stream (available anywhere on Earth) to distribute their content.
RTD Busline: Route 1 to 7th and Santa Fe Lightrail: C,D,E,F, or H to 10th and Osage
Hours of operation:
Monday-Saturday: 12pm-7pm (computer lab access only on Monday. Contact staff if you'd like to schedule a Monday equipment/studio rental)
Denver Open Media is a constituent-led community media organization where the producer-members and viewers have as much ownership over the operation as anyone. Thus, DOM has no "staff," but is a project, facilitated by the staff of a separate nonprofit organization, the Open Media Foundation.
That said, these are the faces to know if you need any help or answers to any questions.
