Media Technology Services
The Media Technology and Production Service in cooperation with the Media Centre offers a wide range of services. See below for a detailed description of our services.
Audio and video production
Our audio and video production services include professional audio and video recording in studio and outdoor conditions, as well as postproduction of the material including editing and DVD burning.
This service is available for University lectures/events as well as for the documentation of research. Please contact us at least four weeks before the start of a lecture/event.
The Media Technology and Production Service offers nine video editing stations which are open to all university members on request. We will familiarize you with the editing software and provide technical support for the duration of your AV project if required. The editing stations are located in Studio E (between buildings A9 and A10).
Many media formats are not in use any longer (e.g. video and audio cassettes, audio tapes). The Media Centre maintains and operates equipment that allows you to still use these formats. On request, we offer a digitization service for video cassettes and films in our our holdings. These digitized copies can be borrowed for teaching and research purposes. To dub records, audio tapes or cassettes equipment is available in our audio carrels.
Our Media Technology and Production section offers a copying service (VC to DVD) to members of the university for teaching and research purposes. Place your request with the equipment service.
The Media Centre records TV programs on DVD for teaching staff and faculty of the University of Oldenburg to be used for teaching or research purposes. Recordings are possible of free TV stations available in Germany (Astra, Hotbird, cable), pay-TV recordings are not possible.
Request a recording by email at least one day before the broadcast date. Short-term requests by phone only as capacities permit.
If you think a particular TV show, documentary etc. should be archived for our holdings, let us know.
All members of the University can borrow technical equipment (e.g. camcorders, tripods, microphones, digital a/v recorders) from the Media Technology and Production Service for research, teaching and study purposes.
