Media Production Studio offers the following services to meet your needs.
Production Project Support
MPS can assist with all aspects of the video production cycle, including planning, capture, editing, and delivery. We produce many different types of content, and work on a no-fee model so that your academic organization can tell its story without major obstacles.
While we’re enthusiastic about your project, we do need to give priority to instructional and departmental multimedia projects. Whether needing support for every part of your project, or only where MPS resources may help fill in the gaps, contact us by email at email@example.com or call 785-864-6452 for a consultation.
Class and Event Videotaping Services
Need to capture a guest speaker in your classroom, archive or stream a departmental event, or conduct a self-assessment of your classroom teaching? MPS offers free departmental and course-related videotaping services.
Our live event support includes single and multi-camera shooting, post-production content matching, and live-streaming.
We work to fill as many requests as our full-time and student staffing allows, which is usually 70-80 events per semester. To arrange the videotaping of a class or event, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 785-864-6452.
Instructional Support - Class Assignments
Our full-time staff are available to support Faculty with multimedia course assignments. We can make a classroom visit to introduce students to equipment and software resources they might use to complete an assignment or introduce strategies and best practices for telling a multimedia story. Or create customized software or hardware training for your student content creators.
MPS staff believes that production literacy – the ability to tell a story creatively and persuasively in multiple media formats and styles – is a valuable, even essential, skill for both undergraduate and graduate students.
KU IT provides Lecture Capture service via Echo360. This service enables faculty to schedule automatic recordings of lectures or presentations or create ad hoc captures. This provides students with a powerful tool that can be used for review, to supplement materials covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based. The captured recordings can be viewed via a web browser and/or can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device.
Media Conversion and Duplication
We can produce a variety of analog and digital media formats for academic, promotional, or personal use. Using our versatile toolset, we can copy media, edit clips, encode web-ready files, and post media to our streaming server (KU Media Hub). We can convert between many old and new tapes, discs, and digital file formats.
Important Note: The Media Production Studio will not convert or duplicate copyrighted media without written permission from the copyright holder.
All of our conversion and duplication services are offered at no cost. We do ask that you provide media (DVDs, for instance) for duplications requests greater than five. Turnaround times vary based on the size of the request and/or the amount of requests in queue. Our typical turnaround time is one-week.
Feel free to drop-off your conversion or duplication requests at your convenience at our front desk in the center of the Budig Computer Lab.
KU's Digital Signage solution provides a single campuswide system to support the informational, promotional, branding and emergency broadcast needs of the University overall, as well as individual schools and departments.
Schools and departments can engage students, visitors, faculty and staff with dynamic, multimedia content displayed on flat-screens in building lobbies, offices and other common areas. In addition to reaching audiences within their own building spaces, participants in Digital Signage can submit content for distribution on monitors across campus.
