Examples of the types of services we provide includes producing short testimonial videos which can be integrated into a web page; videotaping live events such as distinguished speaker presentations; workshops and graduation ceremonies and recording student performances on campus. Finished video projects can be distributed to the customer in a variety of formats including DVD, CD, Blu-Ray or encoded in a format for uploading it to a university web page. Most videotaping of major events on campus are also streamed live to the www.utpa.edu/live website.
