Video & Self Service Facilities
The Media Production Team provides video production support for learning video content to be used in both campus based and online delivery. To see examples of the types of video production support available, see the video production exemplar video below.
There are a number of self-service facilities available on campus (North Terrace) to assist University of Adelaide staff to film and edit their own learning video content.
Barr Smith Library Recording Studio
The Barr Smith Library (BSL) recording studio is a self-service video recording facility, accessible by all University of Adelaide staff and is located in the Barr Smith Library on Level 2, Barr Smith South.
At the Barr Smith Library recording studio, you can:
- record a “talking head” style learning video on green screen or flat colour
- capture a pre-prepared presentation as a picture-in-picture or by using the live key (for example a PowerPoint presentation)
- deliver engaging illustrated or technical content using a lightboard, or
- host a panel discussion or interview.
The studio has an inbuilt PC that can be used for controlling your presentation, or you can bring your own device which you can connect through an HDMI input.
Remember, all you need to get started is a blank USB 2.0 stick (8G - 32G) to record your video content to, water to keep hydrated and your pre-prepared and rehearsed learning content!
Barr Smith Library edit suites
The Barr Smith Library edit suites (BSL229) are situated directly across from the Barr Smith Library recording studio on Level 2 of Barr Smith Library.
There are 2 iMac computers available which have software installed to edit and produce multimedia content for learning delivery. Each machine is ready to use and includes the following installed software:
- Adobe CC Creative Suite including Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator
- TechSmith Camtasia Studio 9
