The One Button Studio is a video recording studio where an individual can reserve time and create high-quality video recordings by simply bringing a USB flash drive and pressing a button to start/stop recording. The studio does not require users to have prior video, audio, or lighting knowledge as all of those components have been automated and pre-set for ease-of-use.
The Lightboard Studio also utilizes the One Button Studio video recording technology but, in addition, includes a Lightboard. The Lightboard is a glass "chalkboard" pumped full of light. It allows you to face your viewers while teaching or presenting written content. The writing glows in front of you.
Currently, you can find the One Button Studio and Lightboard Studio in the EWFM Library, in Room 519A of the south wing.
Basic Instructions for Recording
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)
