Watch on demand

Suitable for presentations, public lectures, in-conversation pieces, global messages, social communications, promotional material, faculty and departmental messages.

When you have the opportunity to present excellent content with an engaging speaker, consider a pre-recorded presentation. This allows your audience to tune in at either a specific time or in their own time. Recording in our studio means that your production is filmed with high quality cameras, optimal lighting and high quality audio. Our professional staff will help put your speaker at ease. You arrange the talent, we will manage the studio and prepare your video ready for release.


  • 2 hour studio time (includes 30 minute rehearsal)

    Studio session lengths can be modified but we do not offer full day events or conference support.

  • What if I don’t know which option is best for my needs - can you help me plan?

    Yes. We’re happy to work with you for the best result. Planning takes time – so make sure you contact us early to assess your needs and plan for success.

  • Do you still offer advice on how to manage fully online events using Zoom?

    Although we can help you with tips and planning, contact the Field Services team for dedicated support. Also refer to the self-service guide for online public events.

    Yes, you can select bite-sized chunks from the recordings for marketing and outreach purposes. Tell us what you need, and we can tailor to suit.

    Depending on what you have in mind, we may be able to accommodate your needs. Additional considerations and costs are involved so chat to us about options. Event recordings in venues other than our studio may not be available until face to face events are permitted on campus.

  • What if my speaker doesn’t have equipment at home or doesn’t know how to self-record?

    Working with us connects you with additional support and may include extra equipment depending on the situation.

  • Is there anything else I need to know?

    Other things that may impact your session are aspects such as presenter permissions and copyright, publishing deadlines or quality of recordings for remote participants. We can assist you through the process.
