About Us

ODU has been a pioneer in technology delivered distance learning since the mid-1980s.

Video Production & Broadcast Services

We provide professional broadcast-quality production services in both standard and high definition formats, to all university offices, departments and faculty as scheduling permits.

We also offer a full spectrum of production services to off-campus clients such as NASA, NOAA, the cities of Norfolk and Hampton, the Virginia Department of Education, the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, and community service organizations of all types. 

Our in-house talent can take your project from conception to completion. This award-winning team of producers, directors, videographers and editors has created programs, presentations, commercials and educational content for delivery on broadcast and cable television, via satellite, on custom-designed DVD's, and as live and asynchronous internet-streaming and podcasting.
