Audio Visual Event Support
The Academic Multimedia Lab located on the IDEA Commons area on the first floor of the Daley Library provides assistance in multimedia digitizing and conversion, from scanning photographs and slides to digitizing video clips, transferring VHS videotapes to DVDs, or creating streaming video clips for digital distribution. Media conversion is not a drop-off service. The LTS technology consultants will show you how to use the equipment and the software to digitize or transcode your media.
