One Button Studio simplifies video production, so that you just insert a thumb drive and push one button to begin recording.
The One Button Studio drastically simplifies video production for faculty, staff and students. One Button Studio requires less time and effort and provides consistent high-quality video packaged on a thumb drive in a standard format.
The studio is located in room 357 of Dawson Hall.
After you have reserved the one button studio, simply bring a flash drive (with at least 1GB of free space) to the studio, and you are ready to go!
You will see the instructions appear on the screen. Simply follow the prompts to create your own video!
You have a limited amount of time to use the space so...make it count! Plan what you want to present ahead of time.
Since your slides won't take up the full screen of your final recording, you will want them to be large, and legible. On a typical PowerPoint presentation, you won't want to use anything smaller than approximately a 32-point font for your text.
The backdrop in the studio is a “chromakey” fabric, and it can be adjusted from green to blue. If you are using the technology and are wearing a color that matches the color of the screen, you may find yourself "disappearing" into the background.
There is a preview screen that will show what your video will look like. Although it is good to look at this before you press the button, once the recording has started, you will want to look straight ahead at the camera lens.
While only a lecturn and a stool is provided in the studio, other items are available for use upon request. If you would like to use any additional instructional tools, please let us know when you schedule your recording session.
The One Button Studio can be adjusted for use by those with special needs or mobility issues. Just let us know and we will be happy to assist you with your recording.
Presentation videos with audio, shared from the presentation computer, cannot currently be recorded. Still images or PowerPoint presentations will work just fine.
No. Camera settings cannot be adjusted for individual recordings.
No. The lights are placed so that there is no need for adjustment.
Media conversion services are not provided for One Button Recordings. Please consult with OTIS staff prior to recording if you believe that the recording format will not meet your needs.
