About Faculty Media Production Spaces

At Indiana University, Faculty Media Production Spaces are recording facilities for faculty use only, with technology suited for producing instructional multimedia content.

Each facility features a lighting grid for flexible camera and light placement, multiple HD cameras, high-quality audio, a SMART Podium™ for marking up visual media, chroma key technology, and a demonstration table. The professional teleproduction equipment has easy user interfaces to switch between cameras and other multimedia sources. In addition, the facilities also house lightboards which allow presenters to write or draw on plates of glass through which the studio cameras shoot. This allows the presenter to present written content while maintaining eye contact with the camera.

Faculty can use these spaces by themselves, or with an assistant or hourly staff member. Potential uses for the Faculty Media Production Spaces include:

  • Lectures
  • Presentations and assignments
  • Exam reviews
  • Demonstrations
  • Interviews (in-studio and remote via network)
  • Small area performances
  • Individualized content clarification
  • Assignment feedback
