We assist faculty, staff, and students with the development of media that enhances learning and supports research. We also search for new and emerging technologies, arrange demonstrations, and create pilot projects. Our services include creating graphics for classroom use, research presentations, professional development activities, College promotional needs, and providing high-quality audio and video production.
Audio and video recordings may be requested for campus events, theater productions, faculty recitals and special lectures. Requests must be scheduled a minimum of one week in advance and are subject to staff availability. To ensure the highest quality possible, please provide the following information when filling out the audio/video recording request form:
Also, please let us know what you would like done with the footage after the recording. For example: added to the College archives, added to the Library collection for circulation, given to event sponsor (specify format), or streamed online. Processing time for recorded footage is a minimum of one week. Exception may be made for materials needed for course reserve.
A release agreement is required for us to record and subsequently use the recording. For copyrighted theater productions, recording rights must be acquired. The event sponsor is responsible for obtaining written consent of the person(s) being recorded along with any other permissions and forwarding this information to the Media Resources Services staff prior to the event. Please use the Nazareth College Release Agreement.
Media Resources generally does not provide operators for classroom recordings. Equipment for classroom recordings may be requested for delivery by contacting the Technology and Media Service Desk, x2111.
Campus Event Recordings
Access videos of campus events including lectures, concerts and other special events.
We collaborate with faculty and staff to produce video projects, most commonly used for training or promotional purposes. Project production includes planning, recording and post-production services such as editing, titling, menus, credits, audio mixing, sound effects, voice-overs, and music scoring.
All audio and video projects require that you have a script written in advance. Your script will provide the framework needed for us to capture the proper footage for your project. Recording will not commence until a script is in place.
Turnaround time - varies depending on complexity - generally 3-6 weeks
Please note: on average, it can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours of production work for each minute of the finished project and we are working on other projects along with yours; so please plan accordingly.
We offer digital streaming of recorded media content. Streaming services are flexible serving both academic and administrative purposes and providing either restricted or public access.
Digital streaming is ideal for collaborative use and/or sharing of media content with your department, committee, group or the public. Media content may also be streamed within a Moodle course page for use by students in a specific class.
Examples of how this service may be utilized include:
We maintain the Campus Event Recordings page that provides on-demand access to videos of campus events including lectures, concerts and other special events.
At this time, we do not offer live streaming.

The Media Editing Lab is a specialized lab designed to support audio and video editing for Nazareth College educational purposes. The lab and related services can accommodate classes incorporating audio and video assignments as well as independent faculty, staff, and student projects.
Hardware and Software
The lab is equipped with 9 Macintosh digital editing systems. Each computer workstation supports a variety of audio and video formats and has Microsoft Office 2008, Final Cut Studio and iLife suite (iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand).
Lab access is restricted to authorized users only. Faculty, staff, and students interested in using the lab are required to submit a proposal prior to receiving a login and password for editing lab computer use. Student proposals require an instructor’s approval. Class use of the lab must be arranged one semester in advance allowing sufficient time for Media Resources staff to work with faculty or academic departments in planning technical requirements and preparing services. The number of workstations and time-consuming nature of editing may limit how many proposals are approved for a given semester. Therefore, prospective users are encouraged to submit proposals as early as possible.
The lab is not staffed and there may be times when assistance is not immediately available. In general, assistance will be available 9am to 6pm Monday through Friday, and limited evening/weekend hours. It is highly recommended that users check on the availability of assistance, if needed, prior to arriving at the lab. Training and support may also be scheduled with Media Resources staff. In addition, Media Resources staff provide workshops and in-class presentations.
Thermal lamination utilizing 10 mil thick glossy film is available for flat originals up to 24" wide on the shortest side. Please be aware that some inks, papers or assembled materials are not suitable for lamination. For example, materials with glued layers may not laminate well as layers may fold over during the laminating process or cause air bubbles. Also, due to the high temperature of the laminator, there may be some bleed-through when thin material, such as newspaper, is laminated. Photocopying such materials and laminating the photocopy may be an option in such instances.
Large format poster prints and signs are available from original PDF files. Prints can be made on 24", 36", or 42" wide paper, glossy or heavy-coated. Vinyl in 24", 36", or 42" sizes is available for banner printing and optional grommets are also available.
