Event recording

Tips for a successful event recording

  • Book a recommended venue, if possible.
  • Book the venue with a start time at least two hours before the start of your event. Recording equipment and the venue need to be set up before your guests arrive.
  • Contact us at least ten days before the event to discuss recording options and arrangements.
  • Ensure all presenters have signed the audio-video consent form for public release. Send this form to the Copyright Office , who must clear the recording from a copyright perspective.

Recommended venues for event recording

The following are the most highly recommended venues for event recording, because of their specialist configuration and audience capacity:


Lecture Capture: a basic free recording option

If you don’t have the budget for event recording, Lecture Capture might be your best option. Lecture Capture is a free service offered by the University and is available in most lecture theatres.

The benefits of professional event recording over Lecture Capture are:

  • The recording quality is higher.
  • There is video of the presenter, not just audio and presentation slides.
  • Live streaming is available.

Live streaming

Live streaming is an additional service offered with an event recording.

Live streaming means your event can have an almost limitless audience. People can watch your event live, in real-time, via the internet.

Your online audience can even participate in real time by asking questions and commenting throughout the event. Live streaming is also a great way to make an oversubscribed event available to interested people.

Live streams can be highlighted on the University’s events page, or at an online location of your choice, whether open to the public or restricted to a University audience.
