In addition to the integrated classroom presentation systems, Academic Media Technology provides other types of support for classroom instruction.

CLASSROOM VIDEOTAPING
Staff and Student Assistants from our department are available to help faculty with in-class, "one-time-use" video recordings such as taping student presentations. Usually, these are made with a VHS camcorder using blank tapes provided by the instructor and/or students. In most cases, the recorded tapes are turned over to the instructor or student at the end of the class session. All Classroom Video Services must be arranged as far in advance as possible. Please call Angel Carrasquillo, Media Technician, at (860) 906-5034 for a consultation. ( E-MAIL A REQUEST)

Media Sandbox

"MEDIA SANDBOX " for FACULTY
Visit us in room 1031 to use our Media Sandbox – a "play area" with toys such a Windows XP workstation, internet access, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Publisher, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop Elements, CD-recording drive, flatbed scanner, and USB connections for digital cameras and other peripherals.
Coming Soon: Media Sandbox support for basic digital audio-video editing.

RECORDING, DUPLICATING & FORMAT CONVERSION
Recording and duplicating copyrighted material may be in violation of U.S. and international law.

Broadcast Recording. Academic Media Technology has basic analog, non-subscription television service provided by Comcast Cable. Programs can be recorded onto VHS videotape or DVD-R videodisc and are for preview purposes only. After 45 days, the preview must be erased or destroyed. If you like the program that has been previewed and would like to use it again, you must contact the Library to request that they purchase a licensed copy to keep in the College's permanent collection.

• Duplicating. We will assist you with making duplicate copies of audio-video materials for instructional use at Capital Community College. One or more of the following circumstances must be met:

  • The materials are in the public domain;
  • Duplication or conversion is required to assist a student with disabilities;
  • The materials are not in the NTSC video standard (electronic conversion is required to use on campus);
  • The copyright owner has given the College written permission to make copies;
  • The College itself is the copyright owner;
  • The materials were photographed or originally recorded by the requesting client. ("Originally recorded" means that the client participated in the production of the materials, and does not apply to broadcast recordings made at home.);
  • The materials are part of the College Library's permanent collection and are (1) in an obsolete format or (2) deteriorating to the point that they will no longer be useful.

• Format Conversion. Provided the above circumstances are met, we can convert audio-video recordings from one media format to another, or create soundtrack recordings from video media.
