Video Options

In conjunction with the new technologies added to the lecture halls, we have implemented a new digital video infrastructure which has expanded our capabilities in this important area. See below for more details, keeping in mind that most of these new options are tied to the rooms which have cameras built-in (see Classroom AV Chart). For rooms without built-in cameras we can provide audio recordings and in some cases we can also capture projected content. Contact Media Services (media@law.berkeley.edu) for more information. Please remember that only instructors can request lecture recordings.

Recording Classes

Video online for courses – For classes taking place in the rooms with cameras (see Classroom Chart), our capacity to capture and publish video is fairly unlimited. Let us know which lectures you want recorded and we will capture these and automatically publish them to the course website. Each lecture should be ready online within 24 hours, usually same day. Contact us for more information. Please remember that only instructors can request lecture recordings.

Capturing projected content – In most of our rooms we also have the ability to record the program feed, which would include whatever content is being projected, such as slides. The student will see both the video and slides in the interactive video player (see below) which uses the slides as an index for the video. 

Video online for events and conferences – For events and conferences, we recommend using campus media staff (ETS).

 

Class Recording Options

Other Options

Videoconferencing – We now have videoconferencing capabilities built into all of our classrooms. This allows for remote collaboration for teaching, meetings, job interviews, etc. If you are interested in using this technology for an upcoming event or class, please get in touch with us well in advance and we can discuss with you the various options and requirements. It is also important to plan for some time to test connections and configurations in both local and remote locations, to ensure smooth operation during the event. Visit our Videoconference page or contact us for more information – media@law.berkeley.edu.

Live webcasting – We now have the ability to provide live webcasting of any events taking place in a camera-equipped room. We may also be able to provide a live webcast for special events in other rooms, contact Media Services staff for more information.

Inter-room video broadcast – Video captured from one classroom can be transmitted live and projected in any other classroom in Boalt. Ideal for overflow situations, where attendance exceeds the capacity of your chosen room.

Podcasts – If you are scheduling for a regularly recurring event or class, we can provide a podcast subscription feed link upon request (think Serial or Undisclosed). Podcasting your materials simply allow’s for viewer’s to subscribe to the course or series of events using client podcast software (such as iTunes), which will automatically download any new events as soon as they are added.
