Recordings During Spring Break

The Department of Information Techonology will be making critical repairs to the central audio-visual control room from March 14 – 18, 2011. Video captures and webstreaming from Kresge G1, G2, G3, 213, 502, and FXB G11, G12, and G13 will be unavailable as we upgrade our main processor.

If you have an event that requires taping, we can provide a limited number of camerapeople on a first-come, first-serve basis for recording and on-demand viewing. Please call the Helpdesk at 432-HELP as soon as possible to make arrangements.

We scheduled this during spring break to minimize the impact on course captures.
