If you don't find anything video-specific, I've seen locking mailboxes designed to prevent mailtheft that might fit your needs. There's a drawer for package drops into the locked compartment.
Padding is easy enough to add - good quality craft foam will work.

Subject: [Videolib] Video drop box?

We deliver videos for instructors to another service desk on campus, and we've lost a number of videos between the time they are returned and the time we pick them up, so we need a locked drop box.

It needs to fit on a table.

It needs to be padded in some way, so the DVD jewel boxes don't crack when dropped in.

It needs to be able to hold about 20 videos at a time.

Does anyone know of such a thing, and where to get it?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
