Academic Media Production

Academic Media Production (AMP) works with faculty and select staff units to create visually engaging and pedagogically stimulating lecture content.  Composed of a team of editors, videographers, and a senior instructional designer, the team works closely with stakeholders to plan, record, edit, and post videos for individual or course-wide developments.

Our Studios

AMP Maintains 5 studio spaces between the Loop and Lincoln Park campuses.

SAC 266A

Similar to Studio 1254, this space features a sound treated booth with studio lights, speaker camera, document camera, microphone, one touchscreen monitor, and one viewing monitor.  Users can either use the MacOS machine provided in the studio, or bring in their own device to attach to our capture card (HDMI or USB-C only).

This studio space is best utilized for presenting annotated slide decks (PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, etc.), demonstrating code, reviewing software or websites, or any materials best presented through the computer directly. The space will fit 1 speaker comfortably, but can fit 2 presenters together with careful setup. 

​SAC 266B

This studio provides a 6 by 4 foot height adjustable lightboard, presenter camera, professional audio, and lighting.  This space is best utilized for writing notes or diagraming content drawn by the presenter.  This space can optionally be fitted with a smaller (5x7 foot) green screen, with advance notice. 

This space will fit 1 presenter on screen, but is large enough for a few additional presenters to step on or off screen as needed (no more than 5). ​

​​Studio 1254

Studio 1254 is a sound treated booth with studio lights, speaker camera, document camera, microphone, one touchscreen monitor, and one viewing monitor.  Users can either use the MacOS machine provided in the studio, or bring in their own device to attach to our capture card (HDMI or USB-C only).

This studio space is best utilized for presenting annotated slide decks (PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, etc.), demonstrating code, reviewing software or websites, or any materials best presented through the computer directly. The space will fit 1 speaker comfortably, but can fit 2 presenters together with careful setup. 

This is an advanced studio and must be scheduled 2 weeks in advance, as staff needs to be scheduled to run the equipment. 

 

​Studio 1253

Studio 1253 is a sound treated studio with professional lighting and is set up for use with a green screen or for multiple speakers to present together.  This studio also features a teleprompter and confidence monitor setup for use while recording.

This space is best utilized for creative green screen recordings or smaller roundtable discussions. This studio will fit 1 to 4 speakers. ​

 

Lightboard Studio

The Lightboard studio is our largest space, set with professional lighting, audio, and camera equipment designed around an 8 by 4 foot lightboard.  This space is best utilized for writing notes or diagraming content drawn by the presenter.

​This space will fit 1 to 3 presenters on screen, but is large enough for additional presenters to step on or off screen as needed. ​

Working with AMP

Faculty and staff wishing to produce new content should plan on working from 2 weeks to 2 months in advance for a single video project (schedules can be determined in initial planning meeting), and 6-12 months in advance of a full course project, though more complicated projects may take longer to plan, produce, and edit.
