VPS open house

STANFORD -- Video Production Services, a unit of the Stanford Instructional Television Network (SITN), is holding two open houses in February to introduce to the campus its recently upgraded facilities and systems. The first open house will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, in room 401 of the Durand Building. The second will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the same location.

Departments and units that have need for advanced video production capabilities to support the development of instructional, informational, promotional and research-related programs can now do so through the enhanced offerings of Video Production Services (VPS). The group, according to VPS manager Paul Marca, recently upgraded to meet its long-standing commitment to offer professional television production, editing, tape duplication and broadcast services to the university community. These enhanced services include new digital video effects and editing systems, improved production studio facilities, and increased access to national and international locations using fiber-optic delivery and satellite uplinks. Campus clients who have recently produced programs using the upgraded systems include:

  • The Stanford Alumni Association * The Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation
  • The School of Law
  • The School of Engineering
  • The Hoover Institution
  • Stanford University Hospital
  • The Stanford News Service
  • The Institute for International Studies * Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. In addition, crews from ABC, CBS, CNN, C-SPAN and PBS have used the facilities while on campus.

The open houses, Marca said, offer an opportunity to visit the SITN facilities and learn more about how the Video Production Services unit can meet departmental television production and delivery needs.
