NYU-TV COVID-19 Service Status
Due to COVID-19 measures and restrictions, here’s the latest regarding NYU-TV’s service status.
During the J-Term and the Spring semester of 2021, NYU-TV’s focus is on delivering remote video production and distribution services to support a safe and healthy service experience. Our team looks forward to continued collaborations with you, sharing our producing and technical expertise and the distinct value that NYU-TV’s years of archival footage can provide to create new material for remote events, promos, and videos in support of your objectives. We'll be delighted to consult with you to create projects and setups tailored to the evolving needs of this new environment.
Our guiding principles in approaching Spring 2021 include:
- We will follow university policies, which are based on local, state, and federal guidance.
- We will maintain a core emphasis on remote service and work for as long as university policies require.
- We will emphasize staff and community safety, both while at work and while in transit to/from work.
Spring 2021 Services
Given limited staffing, resources, and increased logistical needs, advanced planning will be essential. We will require a 14-day minimum notice for any production or project requests with us so that we may assess availability. Keeping this and our core principles in mind, NYU-TV will be providing the following services this semester:
NYU-TV’s Video Production Services will be limited to services that can be handled remotely.
- NYU-TV facilities (Television Center and Studio) will not be available to clients for video production services.
- In addition, there will be no onsite/field location videotaping services provided by NYU-TV production staff on-campus for events (NYC or Brooklyn).
- These services include: audio and video post-production/editing services, including working with Zoom video files; production consultations; and media archive requests. Some of the projects we’ve worked on for Spring and Summer 2020 include Global Liberal Studies' Graduation Celebration and the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies' Dead Sea Scrolls Conference.
- Staff will be available, Monday - Friday, 10am - 6pm, to answer questions, suggest virtual/home production equipment, collaborate and recommend best practices for on-camera recording, content production, and distribution platforms. To schedule an appointment, please email AskNYUTV@nyu.edu.
Content Curation & Distribution
- Spanning over 20 years of material, NYU-TV’s media archive is a resource for curating thematic playlists illuminating historical context and change over the years, and for highlighting currently relevant topics. On your platform, you can use archival to content showcase your department's work as a whole, or do a deep dive into a meaningful topic.
- NYU-TV can provide web-ready files for your preferred platforms, including podcasting services, whether you're making an archive request or producing new work.
- We're committed to upholding NYU’s Digital Accessibility requirements, and can provide guidance as part of your projects with us.
