Broadcast Media Services: Operations
BMS has recording equipment (see below)
available to faculty and administration (not to students) for student
learning, faculty evaluation and meeting documentation. For video
production for broadcast/webcast, see: PRODUCTION
SERVICES. Sound reinforcement for meetings ("PA system")
is available from AUDIOVISUAL.
Faculty have the option of video recording a class lecture for their
evaluations. With advance notice to BMS, you may pick up a camera from
Ax169, receive brief training on how to use the equipment, and then
return it to us after your class.
Many instructors have found it helpful for their students to watch
themselves giving speeches, performing, and giving presentations.
Instructors often borrow cameras and playback monitors so they can
playback the video on a big screen during the same class period that
the recording has taken place. *** Cameras referenced on this page
are NOT available for check-out to students.
Some administrative-related meetings require or request video and/or
audio to be recorded for later distribution or posting to the
internet. BMS helps to facilitate this with our equipment. Quick and
expert training is available. Depending on staff availability, we may
be able to set up the equipment for you.

Our best and newest. This full HD video camera comes with a
rechargeable battery, charger, and SD card. The display is a touch
screen. Save your money - this camera does not use tape media! Simply
return the memory card with the camera and we can send you a DropBox
link to your video. We can make you a DVD, but we prefer to save money
