Video Express

What is Video Express?

Video Express is a series of self-service video recording sites that allow faculty and staff to:

  • Easily record high-quality video in a pre-calibrated recording facility.
  • Incorporate multiple digital inputs into video, such as PowerPoint slides, movie files, and websites, in addition to the video and audio of the presenter.
  • Automatically upload recorded videos to a media server for quick online retrieval through the Video Express Website.

Video Express Portal Instructions:

You may schedule a reservation by going to the portal and clicking the Make Reservation link on the page.  Please note that your campus location and department affiliation may provide different room reservation options.

Please Note: Videos created are saved on the portal for 14 days.  Any videos left on the site for more than 14 days will be automatically deleted.

Recommendations for Recording

When you are preparing to create a video, please consider the following recommendations:

  • Bring any presentation with you on a Flash drive so your presentation will not have to be downloaded to the computer in the room.
  • If you are using any websites or online video in your recording, have those prepared to be quickly accessed on the presentation computer before you start recording.
  • Do not wear green clothing of any kind to avoid appearing "transparent" in your video.
  • Schedule enough time so you can set up your materials prior to recording and re-record your video in the event of any problems.

Getting Help With Video

Contact information is located inside the room.  Please call or email contacts listed if you experience any issues using the Video Express site.

Additionally, there are resources on campus if you need assistance with producing your video or putting your final product online.  Please contact one of the following if you need help with finalizing your video project:

Video Captioning

Videos created using Video Express should be captioned before distribution.  Professional captioning assistance for your videos is available through the Disability Resource Center (email drc@purdue.edu or call 765-494-1247).  Faculty wishing to create their own caption files should email tlt-consulting@purdue.edu.
