Currently, you can find the One Button Studio and Lightboard Studio in the EWFM Library, in Room 519A of the south wing.

Reserving the One Button Studio

In order to use the studio, you must book book a time in advance. To reserve studio time, please use the scheduler at https://go.lehigh.edu/roomreservation.

The studio is available for use M-F between 8am -5pm. Studio time may be reserved in 1 hour slots. Due to space limitations, groups should consist of no more than 5 people at the same time. 

After reserving your time, proceed to the circulation desk at the main level of EWFM Library where you will check out the key to the studio (you will need your Lehigh ID). You can also borrow a slide advancer and USB drive if needed. When you are done recording your videos, be sure to leave the studio exactly as you found it before returning the key back to the circulation desk.

 

Basic Instructions for Recording

  1. Insert your flash drive (must be FAT32 formatted) into the USB hub. This will turn on the studio lights and the video preview window will appear.
     
  2. When you are ready to record, press the large silver button. You will have a 5 second countdown to position yourself in front of the camera before recording officially begins.
     
  3. When you are finished, press the button again to stop recording. Wait a few moments for your file to be written to your flash drive.
     
  4. You may now remove your flash drive from the USB hub. The studio lights will turn off and the One Button Studio software will reset. Your recording is saved to your flash drive as an .mp4 file.
     

Studio rules and expectations

  • DO NOT move any of the equipment, especially the camera, lights or microphone as all the equipment has been configured for optimal performance in all scenarios within the space. The microphone, especially, is a highly-sensitive microphone that MUST remain at a distance to prevent sound distortion.
  • DO NOT attempt to adjust the backdrop. Should you suspect there is a problem, please contact the Instructional Technology team.
  • MAKE SURE you stand on the "X" so you can be recorded in the best scenario and not in the way of the projected image if you are using that feature.
  • If you wish to use the chromakey feature, we recommend you use the "green screen" option. (don't know if this is worthwhile mentioning or not)
