        2. A jpg image to be the banner image which goes across the top of your channel page. From google: “Your banner image must meet the following criteria: Minimum dimension for upload: 2048 x 1152 px with an aspect ratio of 16:9. At the minimum dimension, the safe area for text and logos: 1235 x 338 px. Larger images may get cropped on certain views or devices.” (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2972003?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop#zippy=%2Cchange-your-banner-image )

By registering for the event, you are acknowledging that you are aware the session will be filmed and that you are welcome to keep your camera off if you so choose.”
        3. For the guests, announce at the beginning of the event that it is being recorded and, if virtual, they are welcome to keep their camera off.
      2. Brand video in postproduction: All videos should have an outro slide that includes the Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences logo and an intro slide that includes the title of the video, the name of the featured speaker, the date, etc., and any other pertinent intro information is also recommended—intro slide can also be used as the thumbnail image on YouTube. Examples of intro slides and the outro slide for download are available here: go.rutgers.edu/SASGettheWordOut
