Video Equipment

Where to check out equipment

The University provides some options for borrowing equipment to do your video recordings. These are not all available to all students, and this is not a comprehensive list. Your department may also have some equipment available.

Note: Each source of equipment for checkout has different rules regarding how long you can check out the equipment and in what capacity, so please be aware of the rules and choose check-out sources wisely.
