Duke Media Guidelines
Duke University welcomes news media to campus. All commercial, non-news photography or videotaping must be approved in advance by the Office of News & Communications. 

Studio space is available on campus for live or pre-recorded television and radio interviews. For television interviews, we have a direct fiber link to Microspace Communications Corporation (Raleigh, NC) for uplinking to C- and KU- band satellite, as well as VYVX fiberoptic, LTN, and The Switch for television.

For radio interviews, we have ISDN connectivity and use a Telos Zephyr. Most codecs can be transmitted. We generally use the NPR standard, L2 Mono 128.
