Media Production

MTS Setup

Media Technology Services is here to provide you with professional quality media content that you will be proud to show off.  With only a few exceptions, most of our services are completely free to faculty, staff, and students!  If your department or organization is looking to create a promotional video, create training videos, or simply record a one-time event, please make sure to contact us.  Below is a list of the services that we offer to the campus.

Audio and Videotaping

Media Technology Services video and audio records a wide variety of activities on campus for a variety of purposes: guest lectures, event documentation, meetings, interviews, student presentations, and pre-recording of lectures for later playback. Taping can be done in the classroom, in our conference room, or on location.

Scheduling a videotaping should be done at least one week in advance. Room and scheduling conflicts often arise, so have at least two alternative times available. Include your name, phone number, e-mail address, and course title with any correspondence.

Educational and Promotional Videos

Video is a major part of any promotional campaign these days, and your department or club deserves to be seen!  Media Technology Services produces a variety of videos each year ranging from departmental or club promotional videos to educational tutorials and lectures. Because of the amount of work that is involved with these types of projects, Media Technology Services only completes a limited number of them in an academic year.  If you are looking to get your name out there with a professional quality video, please contact us!
