As well as supporting audio visual and video conferencing needs in various lecture theatres and seminar rooms, we also offer the following digital media services.
Digital Media Equipment
We have a number of High Definition digital video cameras, digital still cameras, and digital dictaphones, plus tripods and headphones, which you can borrow with your UniCard. These items are located at the IT Help Desk Counter in the Main Library. Fines are levied for damage or late return of items.
To loan an item of equipment, or to request a demonstration / advice session with one of our team, please contact the IT Help Desk, stating details of the specific equipment you are interested in, and convenient times.
We are responsible for running and supporting the Multimedia Suite, located on floor 0 of the Main Library on Streatham Campus. The Multimedia Suite is equipped with 3 Apple Macintosh workstations.
While we cannot offer full training in the various software available in the Multimedia Suite, we can offer limited assistance with some programs, including: Adobe Premier Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Apple iMovie.
The Apple Macs in the Multimedia Suite are not administered via our central network systems; to use one you will need to contact the IT Help Desk and request a unique local user account to be made. Please allow 1 working day for this to be supplied.
To book an advice session, or for any other support in the Multimedia Suite, please contact us via the IT Help Desk, stating details of which software and workstation you are using, and convenient times.
We have various media transcoding facilities, and can transfer most types of physical media to digital files.
All transcoding is subject to observance of relevant copyright laws. You can see our copyright page here.
We can also advise you on preparing media content for online use, including advising on file formats.
For more details about any aspect of media transcoding, please contact us via the IT Help Desk, with details of what kind of media you would like transcoded.
*Please note that this service is normally provided as part of our Service level agreement (SLA) with colleges. In some cases the SLA may excude access to the service and this will be detailed in your SLA.
The University holds an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) license, allowing us to record television and radio programs from a broad selection of digital free-to-air channels for archiving in our library collections. Broadly speaking, most digital freeview TV channels, and BBC Radios 1, 2, 3, and 4, can be recorded. We regret that we cannot provide recordings for personal possession, only inclusion within library collections.
For more information about the details of the ERA license, you can look at the ERA website.
