Media Services offers classroom support across campus. Classroom support includes on-site troubleshooting, training on classroom technology, and repairs in the event of classroom equipment failure. Please check the Classroom Technology page for more information regarding the equipment and capabilities of supported rooms on campus.
Media Services provides support for live events on campus. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Setting up public address and projection systems
- Recording or streaming your event (live or virtual)
- Providing technical support and training for use of event spaces
- Providing video conferencing support
- Coordinating and arranging external vendors for large events as necessary
For Fieldhouse Events that involve complex media systems, we strongly encourage clients to give notice and begin planning with our team 3 months ahead, and if you anticipate working with vendors, within 4-6 months of your event.
Media Services provides checkout equipment for students, faculty, and staff. Most items are available for reservation by phone, email, or in person at the Media Support desk. To view available resources, visit our Checkout Equipment page.
MEDIAL: Video Storage
MEDIAL, our digital video storage and distribution, system, allows Faculty to browse a catalogue of digitized films, and easily embed these videos into their Canvas pages. For instructions on how to access this catalogue from within Canvas, please visit our Knowledge Base article entitled Using the MEDIAL Application. For more information on streaming videos, visit Collins Library’s guide to streaming media.
Due to storage constraints, content cannot be hosted indefinitely. Media Services and the Library reserve the right to inventory, archive, and delete content hosted on this server, adhering to the following policies:
- Media Services will conduct an annual review of the content hosted on our server.
- As a part of that review, any media not viewed in the last four years will be archived, making it inaccessible.
- Faculty who find that necessary media is inaccessible due to archiving should email firstname.lastname@example.org or file a KACE ticket from Okta, asking for the media to be returned to the server.
- If we do not receive notice that archived media is still required, it will be deleted one year after being archived.
We are excited to offer faculty the ability to browse through the library of previously digitizied films and add them to Canvas without needing to manage embed codes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call x8585, email email@example.com, or file a KACE ticket from Okta.
