Media Services Video Production Policies

General Policies Applicable to all Services

The LaValley Law Library Media Services unit provides various technological equipment and services to authorized users in accordance with the unit's service level policies.

Media Services does not authorize or schedule the use of College of Law facilities. Only the College of Law administration has this authority.

Media Services does not provide non-technological equipment (e.g., tables) and services.

Video Production for Classes

Media Services will not videotape classes unless videotaping is pedagogically necessary (e.g., for student performance in Trial Practice). Media Services will deliver, setup, and pickup a VHS video camera for class videotapings. Media Services can copy VHS videotapes to other VHS videotapes if sufficient staff and time is available.

Media Services requires a minimum of one week to copy class VHS videotapes. Additional time may be required depending on staff availability.

Video Production for Events

Media Services videotapes only a few selected events. These are primarily major events such as the Charles W. Fornoff Moot Court Competition Finals and the Great Lakes Water Conference. Media Services digitizes VHS videotapes and produces DVDs of events. For major events this may include use of two videocameras. When speakers use PowerPoint, Media Services may insert slides digitally onto the DVD.

Media Services requires a minimum of three weeks to produce event DVDs. Additional time may be required depending on staff availability.
