University Relations excels in telling WVU’s story through video. We create recruitment videos, television commercials, and videos that promote WVU initiatives, build affinity and highlight degree programs. Our team produces multimedia content for major University events such as Commencement, New Student Welcome and the annual State of the University Address. In addition, we are available to advise WVU’s communicators on how to best use video to tell the University’s story; from concept to equipment to editing to distribution.

Video & Multi-media Production

We are committed to staying up-to-date with video equipment and new approaches to storytelling. With cinema-style video cameras, DSLRs, GoPros, 360-degree cameras, and aerial drones, we stay on the cutting edge of visual storytelling. We maintain a high-definition television studio that is the home of the Reed College of Media “WVU News” student newscast. We also operate a high-definition Ku-band digital satellite uplink that showcase WVU faculty on national television outlets. 

Visual Storytelling & Editing

We primarily use the Adobe Creative Cloud family of products for the post-production and editing of media projects (Premiere, After-Effects, Audition, Encoder, Encore). 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.

Motion Graphics & Animation

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

Technical Engineering

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.
