If a video camera was used in a classroom, you can request we burn DVDs of the videos you record or upload them to our server to be viewed online. For special events, such as special presentations put on by divisions or major campus occasions, we can film the event personally.

Non-marketing related special filming projects, such as instructional aids and demonstration videos for online classes, are also possible.  If you'd like to create this sort of film, please contact us so we can set up a meeting.

Overhead Projector and Screen Maintenance

Many classrooms have overhead projectors (not ceiling-mounted data projectors) and nearly all have screens. If you have a problem with the overhead projector or screen, please call the Media Center (ext. 2108) for service.

Video Conferencing

With the market for capable employees expanding to a global level, we've acquired the capability of setting up video conferencing for interviews using Skype, WebEx, and similar programs. If you would like to setup a web interview, please email Media Services with the details, including the person's Skype username if you are using that platform.

Video Digitization

If you teach an online class, we can digitize any films you need and place them on a secure webserver for your class to view. These videos may only be used for an online class, in accordance with the TEACH Act. Please contact Media Services for more information on this vital service.

Policies

Due to necessity and inventory, please make your reservation no less than one business day before you'd like to borrow a piece of equipment or have us laminate or film. If we do not have 24 hours' notice, we may not be able to fulfill your request.

Large projects will take more time to complete, especially if it's behind other projects in the queue. Lamination projects consisting of posters or a large number of sheets of paper will take significantly longer than smaller projects. We prefer that posters are no larger than a D-size sheet of plotter paper; any larger, and we may be unable to laminate it. If you wish to have laminated a poster or a significant quantity of items, please send them to us early so we will have plenty of time to perform quality work on the project.

Policy dictates we limit loans to no more than two weeks at a time. Certain equipment, such as document cameras and bar-microphones, can be installed in a classroom for a quarter.

Media Services only serves faculty and staff, and no equipment or service may be utilized by students. If equipment is used by a student during the loan period, the requesting faculty or staff is responsible for the equipment's well-being during the time in which it is being borrowed. This includes equipment use by clubs and student life organizations.
