In a world saturated with visual images, it is easy to overlook the power of moving pictures. Yet from the instant Thomas Edison first set photographs into motion, moving pictures have been the dominant form of communication for mankind.
Think of any major news event in your lifetime. Were you satisfied to read about it in the newspaper, or listen to a radio account? Probably not. More likely, you sat down in front of the nearest television set and experienced the news as it happened. How could words alone replace the video images of man's first steps on the moon?
Of all the communication media, only video offers the immediacy of instant playback. When you need to show someone what happened, how to do something, or what needs to be done, video is the fastest, most direct way to share information.
Professionally produced video programs can achieve your communication objective more effectively than any other medium. You don't need to explain the subject when you can show it.
Visit our facility and let us show you examples of how you can use video to support your program.
Our on-staff video producers are experienced and talented writers who will turn your subject matter into a dynamic, understandable video script.
True professionals make it look easy. Using broadcast-quality digital video cameras, our production crew travels all over the state to capture events as they occur. Whether a rock slide on the Sunset Highway, new culvert technology in the Columbia George or bridge preservation on the Oregon Coast, videotape provides a complete, accurate record.
Post-production turns raw videotape into a finished program. Our state of the art digital editing systems assure the highest quality output.
Soundtrack music, voice-overs, animation and other special effects may be added for a truly professional product.
When Fleet Services needed to show the features of a new piece of heavy equipment to operators and mechanics across the state, they turned to Photo and Video Services. Videotape training sessions can be created and distributed for a fraction of what it costs to do the training in person. We are ready to help you with your training needs, too!
The video documentation of ODOT's pioneering work in "trenchless" culvert installation is being shared with transportation engineers throughout Oregon and around the country. The potential savings in construction costs could be in the millions of dollars. If you are engaged in new construction technologies, use video to share your successes with others.
If you need to make a point or sell a concept to a group, nothing is more convincing than good video. Whether showing something that needs to be fixed or showing alternative ways of doing it, video is the best way to grab and hold your audience's attention.
