Unit's Media Services has a number of video related services. These include duplicating videotapes (fewer than five copies), converting one video format to another (such as Hi-8 to VHS), converting a foreign VHS video standard to enable viewing in this country, duplication of audiotapes (limited number of copies), conversion from analog to digital (VHS to DVD) and placement of digital materials on our streaming servers.
Media Services does not provide or sell blank media (VHS, DVD, CDs etc..) to faculty staff and students. For duplication and conversion you must fill out and provide a signed Video Services Request Form with the materials to be duplicated or converted. The media along with the signed form should be sent via campus mail to Video Services TSB 310.
Content that is being digitized by CIT will take up to seven business days to be completed, depending on the complexity of the conversion. Timeframes for other services such as video creation/production will vary by project.
Media Services can record events on campus for use in class, in Blackboard, ItunesU, YouTube or delivered via MediaSite. If you would like your event or class recorded please complete our "Request for Media Recording" form.
MyMediasite allows you to quickly and easily record and distribute a video or lecture from your laptop or even your iPhone! Read more about it here or contact Ankit.Desai@villanova.edu at 610-519-3266, CIT at 9-5777, or your college's representative in Instructional Technologies.
