WHAT WE DO
Media Services purchases audiovisual equipment for the college community and DVDs, videotapes and music CDs for the library collection. We also circulate: camcorders, LCD projectors, laptops for presentations, overhead and slide projectors, video editing systems and more – over 2,000 pieces of audiovisual equipment each year. We train users, and we provide classroom support for faculty and students – helping with LCD projection, making emergency "house calls" and expediting repairs. We also maintain a hot roll laminator for the Meredith community.
MCTV, Meredith’s Cable TV system, is also part of Media Services. MCTV maintains three on-campus TV channels:
- Channel 5 – a 24-hour electronic notice board,
- Channel 10 – arts and educational programming, and
- Channel 11 – SCOLA, (foreign language) international news programming.
MCTV also oversees the video production area. Each year Media Services/MCTV produces many videotapes & DVD’s for the college archives, campus organizations, and academic programs. The Cable Administrator also trains and provides ongoing support to faculty and students creating their own video projects. MCTV and the video production area are located on the ground floor of the library.
