The Office of Communications consults with departments to provide video creators with broadcast standards and general guidelines to assist with the activities of producing and distributing video. Our office may be able to facilitate event production and the capturing of your footage with one of our preferred vendors. If you would like assistance with your video production please contact the Office of Communications at (202) 687.4328 for assistance.
Georgetown University broadcast standards for capturing video are: all footage is captured in High Definition (HD) at a minimum of 720p (preferably 1080p), 16:9 aspect ratio at 23.98 frames per second (progressive is preferred over interlaced). By capturing your footage at the highest possible source it will allow for multi-purposing of the content, whether that be for delivery over the Web, creating a DVD or for distribution on cable or satellite.
Content must include event title and date in the introduction of the piece and submission should be accompanied by appropriate release forms for non-Georgetown participants acknowledging recording and distribution permissions.
