Flip video cameras
UD faculty have a new option for recording and distributing student presentations, guest lectures, or special classroom events by borrowing a Flip video camera. These compact, easy to use cameras record up to two 1-hour high definition videos. Simply return the camera to ATS in East Hall for processing. Recordings will be posted securely online and clients will receive a link to access and share with a select audience.

Things to Think About
- Turn on the lights! More light in the room means more clarity.
- Speak up! Quiet speakers are harder to hear.
- Sit still! Keep the camera on the tripod or other stable base.
- Take a look! Frame your shot by using the screen on the back.
Ready To Record
- Power on the Flip Camera. Attach to the tripod and frame your shot.
- Press the red record button on the back. Action! Speak loud and clear.
- The screen now shows how long youʼve been recording.
- When youʼre finished, press the red record button again. The screen now shows how much more video you can record.
- Recording more? Go to step 2.
Save Your Recording
- To keep a local copy of your recording, flip the USB port out and connect to your computer. (Use the enclosed extension cable if needed.)
- Navigate to the Flip Cam icon and double-click the video to play it.
- Return the Flip Camera with the completed project card included in your kit.
- Drop off the camera at 103 East Hall during business hours, Mon-Fri and weʼll take it from there.
- Youʼll get a URL in email in a few days.
- Each Flip Camera holds 2 hours of video. The longest possible video segment is one hour.
- All videos are erased when the camera is recirculated so be sure to save the videos if you want to keep a copy!
- Do a short test and play it back to see what it looks like. Record yourself or a colleague.
- Have your speaker repeat questions from an audience.
