Video Production Services

GMU-TV assists with the creation and development of instructional, training, marketing and promotional videos, and courses suitable for television broadcast.

Original productions highlight the research and developments in higher education at George Mason University. Programs include short form documentaries, distinguished guest lecturers and panel discussions, cutting-edge research symposiums and research communications, artistic performances and more.

GMU-TV develops educational content for both online and on-campus courses whether it is an entire course taught via video, a single lecture, or supplemental video material used in class. GMU-TV can develop media rich teaching tools such as traditional lectures, visualizations of complex procedures or simulations, instructions on specific software, or interviews with visiting scholars. Through live broadcast, webcast, or fibercast, GMU-TV delivers both synchronous and asynchronous courses.

GMU-TV also provides the Mason community with scripted material, recording and broadcasting of live events, and promotional and marketing materials for academic and administrative units.  

The state of the art GMU-TV facility includes two high-definition (HD) studios, a portable HD studio to tape live events at Mason, a fleet of HD cameras, and full post-production equipment.
