Video Streaming Kit
The Media Services Center is now circulating a “video streaming kit,” which contains a laptop streaming server and a video camera. Streaming services are intended to facilitate academic endeavors including, but not limited to, course media, special events, and other related activities.
Who Can Stream Events
Faculty, students, and staff may borrow the equipment to stream Emerson College-affiliated activities. General users borrowing equipment to stream College special events must be working on behalf of the principal organizer of the event.
Students may borrow the equipment in relation to an SGA-sponsored and -recognized club/organization or as a registered participant in a College course. To borrow the equipment, students must obtain sponsorship from an Emerson College faculty or staff member. The application to reserve this equipment may be picked up at the Media Services Center (180 Tremont Street, Third Floor), and must be followed up with an email from the faculty or staff member sponsoring the video/audio stream.
College community members who are generating streaming media are reminded to use the streaming system responsibly and to comply with Federal and Commonwealth of Massachusetts Law, as well as College rules and policies. Furthermore, as streaming propagates globally, please ensure that you have secured rights to use all the materials that you include in your stream for which you are not the copyright holder.
You must obtain written release forms from any on-screen participants of the video/audio stream. Visit TRF's website to download a Talent Release Form »
