The FMC maintains an inventory of high-quality recording equipment. From cameras, 360 equipment, phones, microphones, and more, we have you covered.
We advise that you schedule an Equipment or Project Consultation, either in-person or virtual, to discuss your production needs with an FMC staff member to ensure that you are using the best and most efficient gear for your content production.
The Multimedia Suite is located in Studio 1 and Studio 2 at the FMC. These Lightboard and audio/video recording studios allow for the most flexibility in producing an engaging online learning experience via pre-recorded content.
It offers various tools to capture lectures, such as Lightboard, ClearTouch background, screen-recording, PowerPoints, and/or annotate with a Wacom tablet.
These tools allow the user to either stand or sit depending on their instructional needs or physical limitations.
Curious about 3D Printing or 3D scanning?The FMC can help you take your ideas and turn them into reality. We can 3D print existing models or scan your objects for use in virtual environments or to create 3D printed copies. The FMC can help you bridge the gap between the physical and digital world.
Faculty are welcome to use our post-production suite. The space includes a power PC and multiple 4k monitors providing a comfortable experience. From video editing and 360 virtual tours to graphics and more – bring your own content or record it here.
Whether you want to introduce your students to the technology or experience it yourself, the FMC is ready. We have several VR headsets in house and ready to go. Come see us to explore the possibilities.
Use our in-house equipment to digitize any VHS, DVD, CD, 35mm slides or negative into a digital format. We also have a high-speed flatbed scanner for converting printed documents and images. Many other formats are available through our university partners. Simply book a consultation appointment to discuss options.
The FMC’s staff has created an online course that provides on-demand training. From editing basics, to captioning support, to camera guides, this course at Webcourses@UCF is ever growing and changing. In this course, you will also learn more about our services. Check back frequently on our training and resources guide to see what’s new.
The Faculty Multimedia Center hosts a variety of workshops throughout the year. These workshops include Do-It-Yourself workshops, where we show you how to use inexpensive or free media technology, Faculty Technology Showcase, where we share tools supported by and/or developed at the university and much more.
