Production & Media Services
The staff of Media Services assists students, faculty, and staff who wish to make use of visual, auditory, graphic, text, or web-based information elements in their learning and research activities. Specifically, we can help you publish the results of your investigations and research. In the Egan Library, we have the following available for use:
Audio/Video Editing Station
- This station allows students to edit to DVD from a VHS, Digital-8, DV or other source. The bottom deck is the CD player for audio recording. Above that is the Recording Deck, where the final product is recorded. The number of decks above the recording deck will vary. In most cases, any deck above the recording deck will be used for input. A TV set at the station allows for easy viewing of the source or product. The mixer and titler allows for the addition of voice-overs, soundtracks, transitions, credits, and more. You decide how complicated this process will be.
- This machine does it all, or most of it. It is capable of downloading images from almost any digital camera’s media card. A Nikon film scanner captures images from 35 mm slides or film negatives, and a 12” x 17” flatbed scanner is used for larger jobs. Images can be enhanced with Adobe Photoshop and saved to a thumbdrive, Zdrive, or CD. Color printing is available at the same location. Other uses of Tarantino include digital video editing with Adobe Premiere and web design with Dreamweaver.
2 Macintosh editing stations
- These machines are primarily used for digital video editing. These two machines are equipped to deal with digital video editing in real time. These primary video editing stations have the capability to edit digital video with Final Cut Pro, capture audio from cassette, real to real player and records.
Other equipment (i.e., tabloid color laser printer, CD and DVD printers and duplicators, format conversions, DVD authoring, etc.) is also available at Media Services. For more information, please contact us.
To ensure that the resources you will need are available, please sign up in advance, downstairs in Egan Library 103, or call 796-6314. If you will need training for a certain machine, you may schedule this when you sign up for it. Users wishing to copy media to anything other than their UASHome space will need to provide the appropriate materials to do so (i.e. CD-R, DVD-R, thumbdrive, etc.).
