Reserve Room


About the Space:

The Video Editing Room is an easy-to-use video production suite that is available for VSU students, staff, and faculty who are in good standing with the NMC. No video experience is required to use this facility. A staff member will be available to assist you with getting started and answering any questions you may have about using the room. One common use of this space is Camtasia for Instructors creating training videos for their class. We list below a brief how-to guide to get started with using this software. Peripheral items like USB Headphones or USB Microphone will require equipment loan from the Circulation Area in the New Media Center.
