Video Recording

Faculty and staff can request lecture and event recordings from a range of digital recording types.

Ordering Audio or Video Recording

To request that lectures be recorded for current or future use, choose one of the following:

After the initial order is placed a Network and Classroom Services (NCS) staff member will contact you.

Most video recordings require use of a room outfitted with appropriate technology and a Student Assistant to operate the equipment. Sufficient advance notice is therefore required when requesting video recording services. Rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Suggested Lead Times for Ordering

  • Fall and Spring Semesters: Book recordings at the same time classes are being seated for the semester.
  • Summer Sessions: Book recordings in early December if students will be attending regularly scheduled recordings; Book in early March if you will teach to an empty room and have more flexibility in when and where you record.

Video Recording (Rich-Media)

Video recording (rich-media) captures full motion video of the instructor side-by-side with timed, higher quality “snapshots” of any visual materials shown on the projector. (e.g. laptop, Wolf Visualizer, or classroom computer). A student technician is present to manage camera operation and recording.

Files are uploaded to the streaming server shortly after recording. Depending on the use and the instructor’s preference the links can be added to UBlearns via a Video Access page or they can be sent to the instructor via email to distribute as desired.

Video recording is available in these centrally scheduled classrooms:

  • Davis 101
  • Diefendorf 146, 147, 148
  • Kapoor 125 and 190

And also available in the following departmental classrooms:

Video Recording ("Broadcast" Style)

Video recording (“broadcast” style) captures video and audio in a style similar to a “talk show.” Full motion video of the instructor is switched with full motion video of the visual materials at the appropriate times. A student technician is present to manage the switching, camera operation and recording.

Files are uploaded to the streaming server shortly after recording. Depending on the use and the instructor’s preference the links can be added to UBlearns via a Video Access page or they can be sent to the instructor via email to distribute as desired.
