Recording a video can be a complex process. The checklist of settings and techniques to remember for any given camera is often daunting, especially for someone new to the equipment. That’s why in 2013, the Learning Studio began beta testing a new solution for quick video recording: the One Button Studio.
The One Button Studio was developed by Penn State University, who worked with us to install the first One Button Studio outside the Penn State system, upstairs in the ACU library.
The unique studio is perfect for students practicing a speech on camera or for a professor sending a short message or lecture to a class.
Now, any visitor to the Learning Studio can record a video in three simple steps:
- Place your USB drive into the slot
- Push the silver button to start recording
- Push the button again to stop recording
The HD camera mounted on the wall records directly to your USB drive. To enhance your video, three professional-grade lights and a directional microphone ensure clean, high-quality audio and video. Users can even project slides over their shoulder using a short-throw projector connected to the iMac in the room (You can ask the front desk for a remote to control your slides).
The One Button Studio is the personal film studio anyone can use.
[TIP: Reserve Studio 1 up to 7 days in advance to plan your next visit to the One Button Studio.]
