The RTF Department utilizes state-of-the-art and industry standard video and audio equipment for student use in production-based courses. Equipment is reserved for students enrolled in specific classes. Students must be properly trained on all equipment and be able to demonstrate basic proficiency in class before being able to check out equipment. The RTF department is unable to check out equipment to non-RTF students, non-RTF staff or to the public.
There are a number of rental houses & production services in the community for filming and video equipment, including:
- New Republic Studios
- Precision Camera
- Omega Broadcast Group
- MP&E Camera and Lighintg
- Mopac Media
- Rock n Roll Rentals
- Texas Media Systems
Equipment Check in/out hours:
Students must schedule at least 30 minutes for check in/out. Please make an appointment at least 24hr in advance
RTF Equipment Checkout Process:
To check out equipment, go directly to room 4140 first, not 4141 as classes are ongoing in the Studio. DO NOT disturb a class in progress. If you can’t find the equipment manager, try calling him at 512-223-4904.
To check out equipment, please click on the Equipment Checkout image on the upper right of this page. That will take you to our equipment checkout website. If you have not made an account, please do so and then email the equipment manager (contact info on the right). He will authorize your account and email confirmation ASAP. For instructions on creating an account and using the site, please click here for the User’s Manual.
Be sure to read and understand the rules for using equipment in the ACC-RTF Department.
