Introducing the One Button Studio

Imagine recording a quality HD video at the touch of a single button. Imagine no more! Academic Technology Services (ATS) is happy to present its latest reservable space to facilitate just such a straightforward, self-service recording experience: the One Button Studio.

The One Button Studio is a simplified video recording setup that can be used without any prior production experience. To record their video, users insert a USB drive, which automatically turns on the pre-set microphone, camera, and studio lights. A push of one button is all that’s needed to begin recording.

The key questions:

  • Where is this One Button Studio?  – Woodruff Library, Level 1, Rm 101
  • How do I reserve it? – Book through the Student Digital Life Resource Scheduler linked on our Reservable Spaces webpage.
  • Available times?  – 10 am to 5:30 pm, Monday – Friday (extended evening and weekend hours will be available later in January)
  • How do I get access? – At the Student Tech Support Desk on Level 1

The space incorporates a gray background for filming, but green and blue screen options are also available for swapping backgrounds in post-production. Users can reserve the space for a maximum of three hours. The space is small, with a maximum capacity of only two people.

Some of the benefits include podcasting, presentation practice. interview or lecture recording, and creating a video for a musical or acting auditions. In the One Button Studio, a user doesn’t need technical expertise or special training to push the button and record.
