We require a five working day notice for an equipment request. Video and audio production requests must first go through Department Chair Francine Podenski.

NOTE: A few factual errors/implications exist in the above video.

  1. Same day requests are Kryptonite. We require a five-working day notice for equipment requests in order to serve the college in the most effective way with our limited resources.
  2. Though we might "fly" during our busy delivery schedule, Superman may be unavailable to visit your classroom. Certain areas and types of equipment on Ocean Campus are handled by the Audiovisual Department in R305.
  3. Student reservation & check-out of equipment and our computer labs are limited to BEMA production students for their course-specific projects; the general public/student body do not have access to our student production equipment, including computer and production lab space.
  4. We are limited by resources, time, and copyright law in our duplication services. Also, we are unable currently to record from cable television due in part to the funding crisis.
  5. Superman says hi.
