Video Recording Rooms

Please use our new website for current information.
In addition to a large HD screen, a whiteboard, a PC desktop, and connections for personal laptops, rooms 126, 127, 128 and 129 (Class of 1978 Group Study Room, Alberto A. Vitale Group Study Room, Seltzer Family Group Study Room, and Charles D. Dickey, Jr. Group Study Room) have room-based video recording systems with one video camera attached to the computer screen and one installed camera at ceiling level. A custom control panel allows easy recording of all activity in the room directly to DVD. Please bring a blank DVD-R disk with you. Our desk staff will be happy to set up a training session for small groups to explore the recording system. Please reserve the rooms using the room scheduler and plan for a half-hour at the end of your session to finalize your video disk. Our Video Recording Room Tutorial will walk you through the process.
For best results when recording with a PowerPoint or other visual aid on the screen, please borrow the LCD remote from the WIC Desk and adjust the screen image as follows:
  • Backlight: 3
  • Picture: 75
  • Brightness: 50
  • Color: 50
  • Hue: 0
  • Color Temp: Warm 2
Another option for easy video recording is to use iMovie on the iMacs in Group Study Rooms 116, 117, 118, 119, and 120, or the built-in web cameras available on the laptops in each Data Diner Booth. The equipment lending program provides videocameras for use off-site.
