Video Production: The audio/video element to Media Production provides a variety of resources for faculty and staff use. Services include studio production, field production and media duplication/conversion.

Studio Production: Our classroom-style studio is equipped with three LCD televisions, three fixed cameras, a document camera, a laptop computer and a variety of media playback devices. We can comfortably seat 20 people in the CIS studio in a variety of staging and seating configurations.

Field Production: We provide production equipment and operators for the recording of class presentations, guest speakers, seminars, workshops, performances and other special events on campus.

Video Editing: Editing services vary greatly. We are able to edit footage that is brought to us even if we did not record it, as long as it is not copyright protected. We will also edit footage of what we film before we deliver the final product. Standard editing includes removing excess footage, adding audio and video fade ins and fade outs and cleaning up audio as necessary.

Media Duplication and Conversion: Our facility is equipped to duplicate and/or convert a variety of media formats; audio formats include cassette tape, CD, and digital audio files (wav, mp3, etc.); video formats include DVD, MiniDV and digital video files (mpeg, avi, etc.). Regional coding and format conversions (PAL, NTSC, etc.) are also available.

* Checkout/delivery of equipment (if necessary) is handled through CIS Classroom Support.

Video Conferencing

Video Conferencing: We offer standards-based (H.323/SIP) video conferencing in our on-site studio with comfortable seating for up to 20 individuals. (Please inquire about arrangements for larger groups.) Remote participants can connect to our studio via their own standards-based hardware or software, on Skype for Business, through a mobile app or simply via a computer’s web browser with no software to install.

Requests ideally need to be made a week in advance to allow ample time for testing with remote parties to ensure a smoother overall experience. Video conferencing requests to be held outside of our facility are possible with the use of a webcam and a computer’s web browser (or via an app on a mobile device). Such events are expected to be self-run by the requestor and require reserving a “virtual meeting room” ahead of time through CIS Video Conferencing. Please contact us for additional details or to set up a consultation.
