Video ProductionManager, Emerging Technology
The audio/video element to Media Production provides a variety of resources for faculty and staff use. Services include studio production, video teleconferencing, portable field production, media duplication/conversion, and video teleconferencing.
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 25 people in the CIS studio in a variety of staging and seating configurations.
Field Production: We provide portable production equipment and operators for the recording of class presentations, guest speakers, seminars, workshops, performances, and other special events on campus.
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 VHS, DVD, MiniDV, and digital video files (mpeg, avi, etc.). Regional coding and format conversions (PAL, NTSC, etc.) are also available.
Video Teleconferencing: We offer standards-based video teleconferencing in our 25-seat CIS studio. You can connect with up to 3 other remote participants from our studio. On-site teleconferences allow for multiple cameras, inputs, and displays to be used during the event.
Teleconferencing outside of our facility is possible with the use of a computer, a webcam, and free downloadable software from Cisco. Such events are limited to point-to-point calls without the aid of additional cameras or auxiliary devices. User account management and event scheduling is handled through CIS Media Production. Checkout/delivery of equipment (if necessary) is handled through CIS Classroom Support. Contact us for additional details.
Additional Consultation: In addition to solving technical problems, our team can deliver creative script formatting, directing, on-screen talent, and voice-over talent.
