Equipment Usage Policy

JAMM Audio/Video Equipment Policy
The equipment and facilities of the School of Journalism and Mass Media are for use only by students registered in JAMM audio/video production courses in a given semester. Permission for use of equipment and facilities will not be granted to any other parties.

Further, JAMM equipment and facilities are to be used by registered students only for work assigned in those audio/video production courses. No outside work or personal projects are allowed. Our department is not in the video-production-for-hire business (if you need equipment and are not currently enrolled in a video production class, see info about the Media Center's equipment below.)

By checking out JAMM equipment and/or facilities, a student accepts full responsibility for the care and safe return of this equipment. The student understands that he/she is financially responsible for any lost or damaged equipment and that he/she will be charged accordingly should loss or damage occur.

Equipment must be returned within 24 hours unless prior permission is given for an extended check-out period.

Students who violate these rules may be denied further equipment and facility reservations.

UI's Media Center provides temporary use of media presentation equipment to on- and off-campus users.

Media Center equipment for state-funded classes is loaned free of charge. Equipment for non-state funded classes or events that charge additional fees can rent the equipment at a reduced rate. Non-academic and off campus users must pay full rental fees. The equipment is available on a very strict three-day limit.

Available equipment includes standard or high definition DV camcorders, tripods and lights. To check out equipment for a class assignment, you must have an authorization form, signed by your instructor, in hand. You can download the authorization form here:  

Students without class assignments can rent the equipment for $21-$24/day. Public rental ranges from $28-$36/day.

Editing facilities are not available on campus. The cameras are compatible with basic editing software (iMovie and Moviemaker) available on most computers.

The Media Center is located in the TLC, room 131, 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., 885-6411,
