Video Player Strategy
VCR and DVD/VCR combination devices will not be replaced if they break. Departments have the option of replacing them with Blu-ray disc players. Blu-ray disc players have the capability of playing CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs.
Media Production provides video transfer services to assist with converting VHS tapes to another usable format.
Anyone requiring a VCR because they are unable to have a VHS tape transferred to another electronic medium or purchase a new medium should work with their department to be transferred to a room with a VCR. The department or college responsible for the room may request a VCR be permanently moved from one classroom to a another classroom if absolutely necessary. You may use the Classroom Technologies Database web site to search for classrooms with VCRs in them.
Requests for new equipment or equipment moves are processed through the Technology Assistance Center.
