If your event is taking place in a Hy-Flex enabled room, your request will not be approved and a videographer will not be assigned.
Videography and/or photography services may only be requested by Barnard faculty and staff for Barnard faculty- or staff-led events. We do not provide videography/photography services for student groups or student events.
Once we confirm a videographer who is available for your event, we will send you a confirmation email detailing the information on file for your event.
Please carefully review all details as listed in the confirmation email, and be sure to submit any necessary corrections as soon as possible.
Please submit any changes or event updates to firstname.lastname@example.org by replying all to your event confirmation email.
IMATS will typically take 1-2 weeks to edit your video recording or photographs. Once the deliverable is complete, we will email it to the designated contact person.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can request IMATS videography and photography services?
This service is for Barnard-affiliated faculty and staff ONLY. IMATS does not provide event documentation services for student groups or individual students.
When do I need to submit my IMATS videography service request?
You must submit our Request Format least 2 weeks in advance, though the sooner the better as we cannot guarantee staffing for concurrent events. Please note: you must submit our form in addition to submitting your request on the Events Management System (EMS).
What is the maximum duration that I can request videography services for a single event?
Our standard policy is 4 hours max for any given event, with requests being submitted at least 2 weeks in advance.
Does IMATS offer lecture capture?
For course lectures, we recommend that faculty utilize Zoom recordings. Hy-flex technology is now installed in all campus instructional spaces. Faculty members may check out tips for recording on our Faculty Zoom Recordings page. Please also see our Hybrid Classroom Technology page for instructions on using classroom hy-flex equipment and scheduling training or other support.
What is the difference between your Video Recording and Video Feed for Zoom services?
The Video Recordingservice is a simple static recording of your event, and we offer a polished, edited version of the video for your distribution. The Video Feed for Zoomservice only provides a high-definition video feed throughout the duration of the Zoom event. IMATS isn’t responsible for recording the event, nor do we offer services for editing footage captured in the Zoom video feed.
Do you support tech runs before an event?
We assess tech run requests on a case-by-case basis. Standard protocol is having the on-site event host arrive at least 30 minutes before the event start time to assess camera framing and audio checks. If you would like to hold a tech run in advance, please confirm the room availability on EMS prior to emailing email@example.com. We will assess staff and equipment availability from there.
