Video Recording

Service Overview

TMSS offers videotaping services to academic departments utilizing classroom spaces during our normal business hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Services are not subject to labor charges, but should be requested as far in advance as possible to ensure technical resources are available. 

Requests for videotaping and technical support services for events, conferences, and non-academic meetings are offered as resources permit, and may be subject to labor charges and fees, depending on the date and time. The sponsoring department is responsible for obtaining all the pertinent permissions to record and use the video asset.

For those meetings and/or events that require billable resources, TMSS charges a flat rate of $45.00 per hour, per technical resource. A two hour minimum requirement applies to billable events during the week, Monday through Thursday. A four hour minimum requirement applies to billable events that are scheduled Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and University observed Holidays. Prior to the meeting date, please be sure to speak with a representative from the Events Office, or the TMSS Office, to be sure that you are clear on any intended charges from the TMSS group. 

In addition to the labor billing, TMSS will apply a onetime charge of $5.00 for the recording’s Digital Master File. This file is essential for any post-production editing that the department may wish to accomplish before sharing. If requested, TMSS will provide one DVD copy free of charge; subsequent copies may be requested at $10.00 per copy. 

Other helpful information when planning for videotaping services:

  • A Videotape Consent Release Form is required by the University and should be submitted to TMSS, prior to the videotaping.
  • Please be sure to consider non-technical elements that may play a role in the quality of the video recording, such as the size of the space, the number of people attending, room lighting, and acoustics. 
  • Some campus spaces are equipped with sound systems that can be interfaced to ensure good quality audio.   When a space is not equipped with a sound system, or if the system cannot be interfaced, the videographer will use the built in camera microphone. 
  • The TMSS group does not provide post production, or editing services. 

Please consider set up and take down time if your event is subject to labor charges.
