Mediaworks is the media production arm of Academic Technology Services, catering to the digital media needs of campus faculty, students and staff. If you are affiliated with UC Davis and need higher end digital media services, Mediaworks may be able to help you out. Unfortunately, their services are not available to the general public. Mediaworks' services can be divided into three broad categories: photography, print design, and audio/video. A full description of services is included below, but generally Mediaworks provides digital output, location, studio and scientific photography services, high end scanning from slides or reflective media, custom multimedia and design services as well as full scale digital video productions.

Thanks to ATS's Client Services & Support Group (not technically part of Mediaworks), it is really easy for campus departments to get things done through Mediaworks. Just break out that recharge number!

Mediaworks is a pretty good place for students to work, but competitive. Many of the positions start out at Assistant IV, the highest pay grade available for part-time student workers. The work generally isn't too boring, either.

Mediaworks audio/video group

Video production

Mediaworks provides professional video production services for the campus. These productions range from recording lectures, symposiums, and performances of the UCDSO to televised surgery at the UCDMC and running the video screen at the Multi-use Stadium during sporting events. In late 2009, they finished up their television studio in Surge II. The studio has a fiber optic video line that can be used to push live video out to news outlets.

Audio studio

Mediaworks has a small studio that can be used to record narration as well as do radio shows via ISDN.

Media conversion, duplication, and distribution

Streaming media

Mediaworks can deliver their final product as RealMedia or Windows Media Player streams. Live webcasts are also done, often for things like Convocation.

Physical media

Mediaworks can transfer content to and from just about any video format you'll run into. Massive duplication of VHS tapes and DVDs is also done.

Supported formats:

Other formats may be available upon request.

Live Event Audio

The ATS Video Group provides live event sound reinforcement for many events on campus and in Sacramento. The department provides sound systems for many groundbreakings, fundraisers, and other ceremonies on campus. ATS has done sound for the Silo Stage on Picnic Day for many years, and provides sound systems for the parade route and many of the smaller stages. The department also provided the sound reinforcement for The BUZZ in fall 2011, and AarowJam in Spring 2011.
