- Clientele for Events- We only provide video production services for campus clients for campus events. We do not support requests from outside entities or projects that are not a Washington College event.
- Real-time Video Mixing- Your video is switched/mixed in real-time and delivered shortly after the event. Click here for more details.
Closed Captioning- Closed captioning is required for content produced for the web. Funding for this will most likely be required by your department.
- Lead Times continued- We understand presenter notes, such as Powerpoint presentations, will not be ready at the time of the request. For any productions requiring picture-in-picture overlay of notes/images, we require those files at least two days prior to the event. Please consult with us at the time of your request if the files would be something other than a Powerpoint or Quicktime video files.
- Video Production and Presentation Capabilities by Location continued- Video recording services are only available in specific locations. See chart. We have a BYOCam policy (bring your own camera) for any requests that fall outside of these locations. We have assembled and trained a skilled team of student video producers who remotely operate twin cameras in each of the equipped locations including Decker Theatre, Hotchkiss Recital Hall and Hynson Lounge. We provide support for av services such as PowerPoint and DVD projections and PA system setups.
Real-time Video Mixing continued- Campus clients are responsible for any further processing they desire in their videos, such as titles, text, graphics, or further editing.
