Key Strategies to Migrate Analog Video to Digital on Your Campus

Key Strategies to Migrate Analog Video to Digital on Your Campus

On Demand

When UW-La Crosse saw the analog writing on the wall, it embarked on a multiyear project to transform tens of thousands of hours of video footage into searchable digital files.

In the process they’ve opened hundreds of boxes of film and VCR tapes, and one huge Pandora’s Box of tough questions about video, including: What is fair use? Do different rules apply if it’s for an online course vs. face-to-face? Where will we store it? How will we search it? Will it be secure? Can I still show the video I’ve been using for years? What about copyright?

Turns out removing the VCR cart from the classroom is complicated.

Jim Jorstad, director of academic technologies, will simplify it for you. He’s developed policies and guiding principles for transferring video files on campus, and he’s ready to share what he’s learned so far, from the practical and technical considerations of choosing a video platform to the interpretation of copyright law. Join him in this live webinar as he covers:

  • How do you plan and select hardware and software to set up your duplication work flow?
  • How do you address permissions, disclaimers and getting the rights for the material?
  • What exactly is fair use? And is it different in an online vs. face-to-face course?
  • After a video has been transferred does the copyright still apply?
  • How do you prioritize what you copy from thousands of tapes, and how do you communicate your plan to stakeholders?
  • What’s the best structure create a dynamic, searchable database? (Hint: Mediasite)
