Video Production

See our more of our work work on our Youtube Channel

CALS CCT offers a full range of video production. Is your research team interested in exploring the possibilities of telling your compelling story to the public? Or would you rather target your outreach to tightly integrated video and web design projects that you can use to reach specific users or funding sources? In either case, we can bring your message to life and get it the audience that needs to see it.Our unit produces smaller projects on an ongoing basis.

Each one is different, so let's sit down and get creative together to figure exactly how to approach yours. Is documentary style the best, maybe something exciting to promote the cause, or how about an interactive web product? How can we tie what we do into your other social presences on the web . . . Can we facilitate a product that is best suited for a news outlet? Perhaps the way to approach your project is something tailored for a specific audience that may be involved in funding the next phase of the project. You tell us what you need and we'll help craft the answer.

On a larger time frame, our unit will be creating a series of in depth video documentaries to help the public understand the complex and exciting stories that play out here everyday. This university impacts the world we live in many ways through our core missions of education, research, and extension. How does the research being conducted here, interconnect to illuminate the big questions we are asking today? What are the stories of the people who work here, learn here, or dream of being apart of one of the best universities in the world? How does what we do here, extend and influence industry, science, and our communities? But most importantly, are you interested being a part of a project like this?

The Video CCT team is looking forward to working with you!

Our Scheduling Process

Some projects are big, some are small, but each one is different. In some cases we will need to block off entire weeks or months at a time, while others we can fit in with a day or two of filming and editing. In general, we try to serve the college on a first come first serve basis. This ensures that every project we take on gets completed in a timely fashion. However, we have to take into account how each project serves the core mission of the college and CCT . . . and there is always the odd project that is time sensitive (i.e. the cicadas only come out once every thirteen years!). We look forward to having a conversation with you about how to best schedule in your project!

 Our Upcoming Schedule

  • Lunar Greenhouse (October - November)
  • Reading the Range (October)
  • 100 years of Extension (October - February)
  • Range Rocks! (October - April)
  • Water in the Southwest (February 2013 - February of 2015)
  • 5 Goals of Extension (February - August)

Conference Support

 

Whether you would like a “turnkey” setup with full on-site technical support or would just like to find the most cost effective sound system.  We can provide a wide variety of conference support services including:

  • Technical Planning 
  • Equipment (sound system, projectors, etc) 
  • Technical Support 
  • Webcasting
  • Recording 

In many cases we can provide a fully supported, high quality setup for far less than the cost of renting the equipment from a conference venue.  In other cases we can provide equipment only at little to no cost. 

As a courtesy to CALS personnel, we would be happy to review quotes from your venue and provide a quote.  In some cases this has caused the venue to cut their price (by as much as 50%).

Educational & Communication Technology

Some of the resources available to CALS faculty and staff.

  • Mutlipoint traditional videoconferrencing-  Cals has several rooms of various sizes available.  This technolgy works great for collaborative classes between universities,conferences, distance classes, and defenses.
  • Web Confererncing-  We currently have a license for an 8 seat Cisco WebEx confrenence, in addition we can obtain limited time licenses for larger conferences, shortcourses and events.
  • Panopto-  This is the new U of A supportted lecture capture and distrubution system.  It has been in limited use since Fall 2012 and will be available for full use SP2012 .    http://ua.hosted.panopto.com
  • Collaborate-  Formerly Elluminate, the current version offers many improvements, chiefly greatly improved audio conferencing capabilities.  This application has not gained widespread popularity amopng CALS users due  to a less than user friendly interface and limitations with early versions.  However, it has proven highly reliable and has the capability of much larger webcasts than any other no ( or low) cost option.  http://oia.arizona.edu/resource/collaborate
  • Any event scheduled in Marley 230 or Forbes 110 can easily leverage one or several of these technologies, Other rooms such as McPark 105 and the CEAC Auditorium have access to most technologies
