Telematic Services, as part of the Centre for Learning Technologies, has a mobile camera unit for the recording of any event. Events can include lectures, conferences and practical sessions.
This service is offered at any client-specified venue, and there is an option to use one or two cameras. The option of live Internet streaming of the content is also available.
This service is available for the recording of promotional or evaluation videos. Voice-over and editing services are also included.
The process for using both the mobile camera unit and the video production service comprises three phases: Pre-production, production and post-production. It is important that clients are available throughout the process for the requisite meetings. It is also very important to book a recording well in advance, and to schedule a pre-production meeting to plan the production phase, which includes an on-site visit to where the recordings will take place.
This is the planning phase, during which the necessary information about the recording/production is gathered. The following aspects are discussed during the initial meeting with the client:
• Dates and times of recording
• Length of final programme
• Due date for delivery of final product
• Type of recording (lecture, demonstration, role play, sport, instrumental/song)
• Desired outcomes of the programme
• Target group
• Physical place (on/off campus, inside/outside, lighting, day/night, big/small, noise level)
• Number of participants (single presenter, group discussion, "actors")
• Sound requirements (live sound during recording, voice artist, music)
• Responsibilities of each team member
The information above is used to prepare a quote, and production starts once the client accepts the quote.
We visit the venue before the recording to prepare for the recording. The recording is then done. The information gleaned in the pre-production meeting is used to determine the equipment needed for the recording, e.g. the type and number of lights, microphones, props, etc.
Once the recording is complete, it is edited, and voice recordings are done and music is added. Everything is then compiled to complete the production. The client remains involved in the process, giving input and articulating his/her needs to ensure that the outcomes of the production are reached.
After completion of the production, the client receives a download link to the final product.
