Presentation Station

Learn about the full- or self-service screen, voice and webcam capture station available for faculty use.


The Presentation Station is a workstation for faculty and staff that uses Camtasia software to record anything displayed on the computer, from slides or images you bring with you to content from the web. A touch-screen display allows you to annotate or draw over the image. Narration can be recorded before, during, or after the display images are captured. An attached camera is available to record video of the presenter.

Here are some examples of the types of videos that can be produced on the Presentation Station:

Zooms, simulated pans and tilts, graphics, and music can be added after recording. Videos can be exported to your USB drive and integration into TritonEd and Canvas sites is also available.

"After a brief tutorial, I was able to easily use the Presentation Station to produce pre-course videos for two different courses. What a fantastic resource we have in the Presentation Station and the ed tech experts who support this service!"
      - Stacey Brydges, Associate Teaching Professor, Chemistry & Biochemistry

The Presentation Station can be used two ways:

  • Full-Service: An operator will work with you from start to finish to create a quality presentation. Labor costs are passed through to the index of your choosing.
  • Self-Service: An operator will spend up to 30 minutes reviewing instructions and showing you how to accomplish the specific tasks needed for your project. You can then schedule as much time on the system as needed to create videos on your own (subject to station availability). There is no charge for this type of usage.
