Video Services

Liberal Arts ITS provides video services for Faculty and Staff. Services include video transfers, transcoding, duplication, recording, editing, and post-production for course/web development projects.

Video Transfers and Duplication

Liberal Arts ITS has the facilities to transfer, transcode, and duplicate video among the three most common video standards: NTSC, PAL, and SECAM. Instructors must clear all copyright issues before duplication.

Formats for originals we accept include:

  • VHS
  • Mini-DV
  • DVD
  • 3/4" U-Matic
  • Digital-8

Available options for deliverables include:

  • A link to download the video (active for 10 days)
  • Embedded video in a standalone player for class use
  • DVD

On a case-by-case basis, as time permits, Liberal Arts ITS has the facility to transfer existing video footage in one format to another format for playback on a computer (Mac / Windows) or DVD player. (Note: Discs should work in most DVD players that can read VCD and DVD-R formats.)

  • Faculty and staff are charged a labor fee:
    • Transcoding / Editing video - $15.00/Hour
    • Media fee - $2.50 / DVD and $5.00 / Blu-ray disc
  • Faculty and staff may provide their own recordable media.
    • Please note, in many cases DVD+R Dual Layer 2.4X 8.5GB Discs may be required.
  • We accept payments only with a valid UT IDT account number.

Video Recording

The recording of video as a component of course/web development is undertaken by Liberal Arts ITS video services. This service is generally unavailable outside established projects.

Video Editing and Post-Production

Liberal Arts ITS provides video editing and post-production services for course/web development projects. Other editing and post-production video projects may be taken on by Video Services on a case-by-case basis. Editing and post-production is done on Macintosh computers using Final Cut Pro.

Equipment Loan

Video equipment is available for loan to College of Liberal Arts faculty. Items available include Mini-DV camcorders and production support equipment. Arrangements for the loan of equipment should be made in person in MEZ 2.104 or by email.
