Valuing Your Center’s Volunteers


Valuing Your Center's Volunteers As a media center, your staff and your producers are integral to the success of your programming. What about your volunteers, though? They also have a large role to play, and keeping track of volunteers’ work on productions is key to creating a productive media center. Volunteers are a huge help when it comes to creating quality productions; just one producer alone is not enough to create a full show. Volunteers can help with every aspect, from lighting fixes to editing the final product. There’s a role for every volunteer out there; even if they’re [...]

Hosting Virtual Classes? Isaac Can Help.


Hosting Virtual Classes? Isaac can help. As you venture back into the office, your media center might not be fully ready to return to in-person classes. One option is to offer virtual classes instead. First, you would want to identify which classes you can hold virtually. Use the “Class Reports” feature in Isaac to see what classes you’ve offered recently. You can then evaluate what will work as a virtual lesson. Classes that are mostly hands-on or involve multiple pieces of studio equipment might not be the best choice for a virtual lesson, like Studio Lighting for example. Classes about [...]

Equipment Kits: A Staple of Isaac


Equipment Kits: A Staple of Isaac The current pandemic has made it difficult to create studio productions in the traditional way we're used to. Social distancing means we can’t safely fit the usual amount of people needed for a shoot into one studio, and we're not sure when our regular production processes will be able to resume. In order to help you adjust to this change, we at Isaac have been thinking about ways your members can still create broadcast-quality videos from home. One option is for media centers to create at-home camera kits for members. Choosing small, portable pieces [...]

What’s New?


What's New? That's a loaded question... So much is new, so much has changed and social distancing has oddly made us all virtually closer.  Really think about how much more time you spend now on zoom calls/meetings, Slack or other interoffice communications with your workmates and clients than you did ever before Covid-19 became a reality. That said, how is everyone doing during these unprecedented times?  PEG media has certainly had to adjust to a new normal. As the weeks turn into months during the pandemic Isaac has been busy adjusting as well. We are planning for the future while [...]
