What we can do for you… 

Maybe you have a great idea for a video or multimedia project, but don’t know where to start. Multimedia and Convergent Media Services can help determine your next steps. 

Set up a meeting with the professional staff to learn about the design and production process. First, we need to determine the nature of the project, what is its purpose, who is the intended audience, and the timeline.  This information is needed to decided which one of our professionals will be working with you. 

Multimedia and Convergent Media have some overlap, but deliver differentiated services depending on the nature of the proposed project. This meeting with you will resolve which method will meet your needs best. 

The next step is for you to develop an outline, script and storyboard for your project. Although our staff can assist you in learning what these steps entail, you are the content expert in this team effort. We also need for you to identify resources – people and research materials – to be used in the production. 

Multimedia Services

The Multimedia Specialist will guide you in selecting and using the correct hardware and software that will give the best results.

Convergent Media

For more complex productions relating to promotional, informational or instructional goals, Convergent Media Services staff work with your script to create audio or video recordings that require more time or which have higher production standards. We’ve created media productions for the Employee Campaign, UIW Tech Fair, among other projects 

In addition, this group administers the university's lecture-capture system - Echo360, online videos for Blackboard via Kaltura, the Zoom web-conference tool or UIW's iTunes U account.  

Check out some of our work here: UIW on Kaltura's Mediaspace. We also assist the Communication Arts Department with the KUIW.org, UIWtv.org, and UIWLogos.org websites.
