The University Relations/Video team helps create recruitment videos, television commercials, and videos that promote WVU initiatives, build affinity and highlight degree programs. We also produce multimedia content for major University events such as Commencement, New Student Welcome and the annual State of the University Address.

Request Video Services 


The UR/Video team has a 3-camera HD television studio in conjunction with a large cache of high-quality field production equipment. The television studio is also the home of the WVU Reed College of Media “WVU News” student newscast and the West Virginia Illustrated live studio show, “Mountaineer Gameday.” We also have a high-definition Ku-band digital satellite uplink facility that can allow us to showcase WVU faculty and researchers on national television outlets such as CNN, Fox News Channel, Al-Jazeera America, ESPN, ROOT Sports or Fox Sports Network.


We Adobe Creative Cloud family of products for the post-production and editing of media projects (Premiere, After-Effects, Audition, Encoder, Encore, and SpeedGrade). We maintain annual music license contracts to enhance our productions with high-quality music or sound effects. Media projects can be encoded and electronically-distributed to broadcasters, radio stations, FTP-servers or YouTube.

Our full-time motion graphics designer and other talented individuals can make any production spark to life with high-quality motion graphics or 3D animation (Lightwave 3D, After-Effects).


The University Relations/Video Engineering Team is essential to daily operations. They install and maintain new studio equipment, computer workstations, and they are licensed to operate the satellite uplink. They are also responsible for the system administration of University Relation’s digital asset management system – CatDV.
