Sound Stage Recording

The Sound Stage (located in Medical School Wing B) is available for professional quality audio and video productions. The soundproof room is equipped with high quality audio equipment, video equipment, a teleprompter, studio lighting and backdrops. There is also a computer available with E-Learning authoring software. Typical client use of this facility includes:

  • Preparation of learning modules or pre-recorded lectures
  • A set for interviews or other videos with 1-3 people featured
  • Teleprompter services
  • Audio recording for video narrations or podcast production

Podcast Production

Using the sound stage (mentioned above) or portable audio gear on-location, we have the capability to record professional broadcast quality audio that can then be edited and converted to podcast format (e.g. MP3, M4A). In addition, any video recordings can also be converted to a video podcast (e.g. M4V). We can assist with distribution of your podcast through the use of Carolina iTunes U (for School of Medicine curricular use only) or with the creation of an ITPC / RSS feed that allows end users to subscribe directly to your podcast.

E-Learning Authoring

Using the sound stage (mentioned above), we have the tools to help you create interactive E-Learning modules and screencasts to meet your curricular needs. Currently, we use Camtasia Studio and Articulate Storyline which allows for the following:

  • Screen Capture (for web tutorials, software demonstrations, or other tasks requiring multiple windows on a computer screen)
  • Presentation Capture (for full-screen PowerPoint or Keynote presentations)
    • Narrations can be added
    • Pointers, Highlights, and Captions can be displayed over presentation
    • Navigation/Contents can be added to link directly to parts of presentation
  • Interactive Content
    • Summary Quizzes
    • Confirmation Questions
    • Animations
    • Videos/Audio clips

Field/On-Location Recording

We have a complete Electronic Field Production (EFP) capability to provide broadcast quality audio and multi-camera video recordings on campus, and nearby locations with proper arrangements. Available equipment includes:

  • HD Broadcast Quality Cameras
  • Shotgun and Lavalier Microphones with Audio Mixer
  • Broadcast Quality WAV Audio Recorder
  • Complete Lighting Solutions (LED, Soft, Direct, Color Gels)
  • Camera Jibs (Crane) for Custom Camera Angles

Media Editing & Encoding

Whether we produce your media or you have existing media files, we can edit, add graphics and titles, and apply technical corrections (color, audio, frame rate) to provide you with a master copy that can then be encoded for distribution via web, podcast, or DVD. We can also re-encode media files to make them universally compliant for easier distribution.
