Getting Started with Streaming Video

Produce and post media online:

Put in a request to record your class lecture, or record your own video, then deliver the file to Media Services (x2003) to upload it to the streaming server to share.

Recording by Request

Student technicians are available to video and audio record classes, academic or administrative events. Scheduling for a student tech is done through your USF Calendar tab within USF Connect. The Audio/Video reservation form is available under the "Room and Event Request" button. Reservations must be made at least one week prior to the date of the recording and by the Thursday of the week prior to your request date. If you need assistance with the form, need to follow up on a request, or make a late request, please contact the Help Desk, which serves as the primary point of contact for taping requests.
