What is Video Express?

Video Express is a series of self-service video recording sites that allow faculty and staff to:

  • Easily record high-quality video in a pre-calibrated recording facility.
  • Incorporate multiple digital inputs into video, such as PowerPoint slides, movie files, and websites, in addition to the video and audio of the presenter.
  • Automatically upload recorded videos to a media server for quick online retrieval through the Video Express Website.

How Do I Get Started?

Simply reserve one of the Video Express sites on campus. You may do this by clicking on the Calendar icon at the top of your screen.

Recommendations for Recording

When you are preparing to create a video, please consider the following recommendations:

  • Bring any presentation with you on a Flash drive so your presentation will not have to be downloaded to the computer in the room.
  • If you are using any websites or online video in your recording, have those prepared to be quickly accessed on the presentation computer before you start recording.
  • Do not wear green clothing of any kind to avoid appearing "transparent" in your video.
  • Schedule enough time so you can set up your materials prior to recording and re-record your video in the event of any problems.
