Our staff has decades of diverse, specialized media and marketing experience and is committed to high levels of customer service and client satisfaction.

Multimedia Services

Video Production

We assist our clients in constructing their message, identifying their target audiences and producing creative, effective videos to drive viewers to their call to action. We provide services for script development, logistics planning, single or multi-camera recording on location or in our studio, video editing, and encoding for DVD or web-ready files.  

Types of programs include:
>  Company image / overview
>  Annual reports
>  Training / instructional
>  Recruiting
>  News releases


Video Documentation

Video documentation is similar to video production, but rather than a scripted program, documentation refers to video recording of a full event for informational or archival purposes. We record under existing lighting conditions and do minimal editing. This more basic approach allows us to cover events at a greatly reduced cost compared to a full production.

Typical documentation events include:
>  Seminars and workshops
>  Meetings and symposiums
>  Speakers and panel discussions
>  Awards ceremonies
>  Music and theatre performances

Multi-camera Live Recording and Streaming

For customers who schedule events at the NIU Convocation Center or Huskie Stadium, we offer full live video services from our Convocation Center control room. We cover all types of events from sports to streaming live presentations. 

All events include experienced crews, staff engineers and a full equipment package. Regular live events include NIU Intercollegiate Athletics events broadcast on ESPN3, IHSA and IESA athletic tournaments, high school commencements, news conferences, trade shows and more.

Our video control room features:
>   Daktronics Video display systems
>   HD Cameras with extended sports lenses
>   Sony MVS-3000 switcher
>   Chyron Character Generator
>   EVS slow motion replay and recording
>   Click Affects video playback server
>   Reidel Intercommunications
>   LTN Leaf digital encoders for video broadcast over IP

Audio Production

Our wide selection of microphones and accessories ensure that we capture the best possible sound recordings in any environment. We can record in the field, in our studio or in our sound booth. All recordings are edited, mixed and mastered in our 5.1 audio editing suite. We can deliver your final product as digital files, audio CDs, data DVDs and/or podcasts.

Types of projects include:
>  Individual speakers and group presentations
>  Performances and demo reels for music groups and soloists
>  Podcast consultation, recording, editing and posting
>  Restoring and enhancing vintage recordings for educational and archival purposes
>  Voice-overs, sound effects and restoration for video productions

Audiovisual Support

Audiovisual support is another similar, but distinctly different type of service. In addition to documenting an event, we participate in the technical aspects of the presentation.

We incorporate various technical elements into a seamless, professional presentation, enhancing the clarity of the message and the audiences’ experience of the event.

This includes:
>   Shooting and projecting live speakers for image magnification
>   Playing back pre-produced videos from a device or an internet source
>   Inserting PowerPoint slides or other graphic elements
>   Providing microphones and amplification of speakers or performers
>   Live streaming and recording of the event for later on-demand viewing

Media Conversion and Duplication Services

We provide analog to digital transfers from several media formats. Once we digitize your footage, we can edit it or duplicate it in full in small or large-run numbers of copies. We can also duplicate DVDs, CDs or Blu-Ray discs, but must comply with copyright restrictions.

We can deliver your final products as video DVDs, audio CDs, Blu-Ray discs, and/or data discs, with standard on-disc printing and professional packaging options.

Formats include:
>   16 mm film
>   ¾ inch U-matic tape
>   Betacam and Betacam SP tape
>   8mm and Hi8 tape
>   VHS, S-VHS and VHS-C tape
>   DVCAM and Mini-DV tape

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“We are beyond pleased with the services of IMT for our Annual Fundraising Dinner. The team is highly professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Further, they have been of great assistance in providing ideas to enhance our presentations and give us peace of mind that it will all run smoothly.”
Kishwaukee Family YMCA

“When we asked the IMT Department to help us with the promotional video and recording The Wall That Heals in Sycamore, we had no idea what we were in for. They picked some amazing quotes and video to highlight the event, which didn't leave a dry eye in the room. This is an easy to work with group that does amazing work and would recommend them for any group wanting an impact.”
DeKalb County Veterans Tribute Group

“Over the last three years, IMT has filmed and produced DVDs of all six of our productions. Thanks to them, every participant gets a priceless memory of their time in our program. They are always easy to work with and never fail to provide a quality product.”
