Production Services is an in-house support unit established to assist Media Services video capture, editing, and hosting of locally-produced content. Services range from the capture of lectures and presentations to the development of studio productions. In addition, a variety of photographic services are provided to enhance class presentations and special events.

Webinar Request

Webinars restrict audio, video and chat functions for attendees; provide a platform for panelists to present to large audiences with optional features including a managed Q&A experience, registration, attendee view layouts and more. (Note: breakout rooms are not available in webinars.)

Hosting Your Videos

For training & instructional videos, we recommend using 3CMedia, a free resource available to everyone in the CCC system; it is like a private YouTube with educational resources like grant-funded DECT captioning available. You may sign up for your own account and our support team can assist with training as needed for a do-it-yourself approach.

For marketing/promotional videos, the District's official YouTube channel can be used for community outreach.

In Santa Rosa, the Media Production Techs (Yarrow Sweningsen, James Blue, and Sipho Mahlaku) have access to upload videos to SRJC's YouTube channel, once the requested content is approved by PR and/or Media.

Requests are prioritized via queued tickets in TOPDesk. Note that anything posted publicly on this official YouTube channel must be accessible (closed captioned at $1.25/min), which we can facilitate. Depending upon the language(s), subtitles can be ordered as well; our team typically processes these tasks thru ($3-7/min).

SRJC Livestream

Many events on SRJC's campuses are available for remote participation live or on-demand via our livestream website
