Media Studio

The Educational Technology Media Studio, located in the Medical Education Building, Room 1008 (Irvine), supports the production of high-quality video and photos for faculty, staff and students at the School of Medicine. The Media Studio has helped to produce countless videos since its launch on topics ranging from kidney transplantation to the Zika virus including content for our core courses and clerkships, departmental trainings and patient education.

We have also provided live-streaming and audio-visual services for events, workshops and conferences such as the Match Day presentation. The studio has cameras/equipment to enable close-up shooting for demonstrations of procedures such as suturing skills or physical exams and can meet a variety of recording needs.

We welcome you to visit us and find out more about our services. For information on our Media Studio, contact Francisco Chanes, Media Producer, using our iMedEd Service Request Form.

Lecture Capture

Many lectures in Tamkin and Nelson Halls are recorded using Mediasite by Sonic Foundry. The Division of Educational Technology facilitates the recording and cataloging of these recordings. The faculty member is only responsible for turning the lapel microphone on. Podcasts have become an integral part of the services that we provide to our students; some lectures will only be offered as podcasts. Note that it is usually impossible for the Educational Technology staff to accommodate audio/video issues retroactively and rerecording is not an option for faculty. The following steps will be taken to insure the greatest quality:

  • Faculty should contact the Educational Technology team using the iMedEd Service Request Form about any specific setup/hardware requirements for their lecture. For example, if the lecturer plans to demonstrate something on stage, the camera must be set up appropriately. Also, if the lecturer plans to show a video, they should inform the Educational Technology team ahead of time.
  • All audio will be recorded using a lapel microphone that can be found at the podium. There will be no microphone above the students; hence, faculty should repeat all questions that arise during the lecture.

Create Your Own Podcasts

The UCI Replay service using the TechSmith Relay Recorder screen capture software is another option for recording podcasts. TechSmith Relay Recorder can be downloaded by UCI faculty and staff. TechSmith Relay Recorder enables faculty or staff to record on a personal computer. In addition, TechSmith Fuse (free app), will enable faculty or staff to record with an iPad, iPhone or iPodTouch running iOS 5.0 or higher and immediately upload a recording  to the UCI Replay server.
