Classroom Technology Services (CTS) provide a wide range of video recording and video editing services for Ivey Faculty and Staff. The following is a list of options that you can choose when requesting videos to be shot or edited.
Options - Video shoots and Recordings
1. Classroom Recordings
CTS can schedule and record your class using the classroom camera. The camera faces the Faculty "pit" area and uses ceiling mics or an optional (but recommended) lav. microphone. Faculty can request lav microphones by visiting our office or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Typical quality is 960p resolution at 1.5Mbits which gives a fairly good quality image. Videos will be available to view online on Ivey's Mediasite video content management system. All Faculty who request their class to be recorded must have prior permission from their respective program leadership and also must abide by Ivey's video recording policy.
