Multimedia Production and Support

Service Owner: Brian Thompson

NIU’s Division of Information Technology (DoIT) provides professional video recording, multimedia production and post-production editing for athletic events, special events at NIU's Convocation Center, other campus events, and outside events for entities such as the Illinois High School Association.  DoIT runs a multi-million dollar control room in the Convocation Center to support any and all production events.

This service also includes:

  • Television camera work, event direction/production, audio and replays for athletic events on ESPN3
  • Extraction and production of athletic archival footage for use in sports marketing campaigns.
  • Audio/video recording and editing for athletic press conferences.
  • Support for video coaching and analysis using video captured from robotic cameras used during football practices and games.

Staff in DoIT's multimedia production team mentor and supervise more than twenty NIU students who are then prepared for careers in video direction and production.
