Service Descriptions

Informational/Promotional Signage and Banners:

Large format posters, signs, banner design and production services are available to faculty and staff for campus events, visiting speakers or messages for the campus community. Most posters, signs and banners are designed and produced "in-house" on our large format printers, some jobs requiring large quantities (more than 20) may require 3rd party printing, as such more lead time may be required. Poster, Sign and banner jobs may incur departmental charges.

Typical examples and sizes and options:
Posters/Indoor Signs:
  • 24" X 32", 11" x 17", 18" x 24", 16" x 20"
  • Custom Sizes Also Available
  • Foam Core Mounting
  • Satin or Gloss Lamination
Banners & Outdoor Signage:
  8" x 24" Outdoor H-Stake Signs:
  • Single or Double sided
  • Mounted to Corrugated PVC
  Oversized, Reinforced Vinyl Outdoor Banners:
  • Full Color Print
  • Single or Double Sided
  • Can be grommetted for hanging

Conference Posters:

Conference presentations are a vital part of research for both Faculty and Students. To support this, MDRPS offers large format, conference poster design, printing and additional finishing like lamination and mounting to folding foam-core panels.

Faculty Conference Posters
  There is no charge for faculty conference posters in most circumstances. We ask for two to three weeks of lead-time for posters requiring design and layout. For posters that only require printing we ask for a one-week lead-time and that the poster be print ready when submitted. A charge may be assessed for conference posters that require re-prints due to typo's, changes or damage.Faculty may submit many different formats for conference poster design. Typically, faculty will provide their condensed research in a Word document with supporting graphs and images. Image files can be submitted in any standard format (bmp, jpg, gif, tif, etc.). MDRPS does not accept Publisher documents.
Student Conference Posters
  Student conference posters are printed for a charge to the sponsoring academic department. Student conference poster printing is a print only service. Student conference posters must be submitted by the sponsoring faculty member. MDRPS does not offer design or finishing services for student conference posters. We ask for two weeks of lead-time for student conference posters.

Graphic Course Banners (for use in Blackboard):

Graphic course banners assist Blackboard users with easy identification of the course they are accessing as well as presenting a more polished interface to the enrollees. Course banners are a graphic header for Blackboard courses and are done at no charge for ISU faculty.


When words and static graphics aren't enough to illustrate complicated concepts, topics, or timelines, animation and 3D modeling can help. MDRPS offers several types of animation, including: Time-lapse recordingTraditional (2D) Animation3D animationStereoscopic AnimationDue to the time intensive nature of animation, MDRPS will request a consultation meeting with faculty to determine the needs, scope and timeline of the project.

Digital Illustration/3D Modeling:

Digital illustration is offered to faculty to assist with the development of visual aids for the further and deeper explanation of concepts and data for instruction, research and grant support. MDRPS's digital illustrations have been used for publications, conference posters and use in learning environments.3D Modeling is similar in purpose to digital illustration, but ads dimension and interactivity. MDRPS can deliver 3D models in static image formats or interactive models for delivery via the web.Digital illustration and 3D modeling projects require significant resources and time management, all DI/3D projects require consultation with faculty and staff to help determine the and define project scope and acceptable timelines.

ISU Live (Electronic Information Displays):

ISU Live displays can be found all over campus. They are University branded, customizable electronic information screens, streaming news, campus news, time and weather. If you would like an ISU Live system in your department, request an appointment, and we will consult with you to develop a quote for system installation.For ISU Live technical support, contact the Technology Support Center (ext. 2910).

Video Recording and Streaming Services:

If you are a faculty or staff member, we can record educational special events and/or guest speakers in your classroom or our studio. We record at 1080p. MDRPS also provides the ability to upload and host your video on a video on demand server, including embedding video into Blackboard for online course delivery.

Desktop Application Development

Desktop Application Development is available to faculty and is typically used for the control of hardware, extraction of data from hardware, or processing of collected data. We also develop programs to control Excel and Access, in order to process complex data sets for analysis and reporting.

High Performance/Parallel Computing

Computational science has emerged as a “third way” of doing research in addition to theory and experimentation. With the introduction of high performance computer systems, scientific research can use mathematical models that are too complex and too time consuming to be solved by a single computer. We develop codes for high performance computing applications, benchmark HPC systems, port open source scientific software, process large scientific data sets, and consultation for porting your application to HPC resources in national laboratories.

Scientific Simulation

While numerical simulation is extensively used in natural sciences and engineering research, social science may require the simulation of a specific phenomenon or activity. We develop both desktop applications and online applications for scientific simulation.

Web Database Solutions

A web database is a system for storing and managing data on a server that can be accessed via a web browser. Web databases are particularly useful for the management and display of research and instructional information as well as collaboration between researchers. A database server hosts your database content robustly, securely and efficiently. The interactive web interface allows you to have controlled access to your data from wherever you want, In addition, a database server is able to handle millions of inquiries from the general public.
