Booking Studios and Edit Suites

Edit Suites

Notice: Due to upgrades and maintenance, Edit Suites will remain closed until early October. 

We’ve modified the procedure for access to our Edit Suites. To minimize the many contact transactions that occur with key distribution, keys will be hung outside the FMSA Technician office for self-sign out.  You’ll need to create a booking using the online portal below, then stop by the FMSA Technician office and grab the key for your booked Edit Suite. Of course, this relies on self-management and an honour system, so please be on time with your bookings. If you have any issues creating a booking, please contact fmsatech[at]ecuad.ca.

  1. Create a booking using the procedure below.
  2. Visit the FMSA area key-shelf (located outside the Tech office) and collect your key
  3. Return the key to the key-shelf when finished with your booking

To book an individual FMSA Edit Suite:

  1. Log in below using your ECUAD webmail credentials;
  2. Select “Media Resources Department.” 
  3. Click on the top-left icon,  then select “New Reservation.”  
  4. Enter your booking Start and End times/dates
  5. Under the “Browse Resources” section, click “Key” then “FMSA Edit.
  6. Add the room number you want by clicking the + sign next to the room’s name.
  7. Click “Confirm” to complete your booking. Note: errors must be corrected before the Confirm button will be available at the bottom right. Click on the  icon to see what the error is. For example, you may not have selected an appropriate time, or number of keys (resources), or may not be authorized for a resource.
