The University holds an 'ERA' licence, which enables LUTV to record programmes from broadcast output.

Recording TV programmes

LUTV can only record standard definition "Freeview" channels. The ERA licence allows us to record most cable, terrestrial, and non-subscription satellite programmes. The Open University used to have a separate licence but this is no longer the case, they are now covered by the ERA licence.
Questions about the ERA licence, should be directed to Annette Lawrence in the Library - ext. (5)94965
email: a.lawrence@lancaster.ac.uk

LUTV can record a number of programmes simultaneously to DVD. We can also record programmes for viewing via Moodle subject to the ERA licence conditions.

Making a booking
