Library Studio: One Button Studio

One Button Studio

The Library Studio is a fully automated One Touch video recording studio that allows you to record video presentations onto USB keys. There’s no need to adjust the lights, settings, the camera or anything else. 

 

Important Information

  • You will need to bring a USB that is FAT32 compatible and which has at least 1GB of memory free.  
  • As the studio uses a green screen don’t wear any green clothing as this won’t be picked up by the camera and will be see-through. 
  • The studio can be used for assignments; however, enough time needs to be left to overcome any possible technical issues.   
  • Please turn off the lights when you’re finished in the Studio. 

 

Opening hours: 10:00 to 19:00 Monday to Friday
Direstions: Located in the Basement (Q-1) of the Boole Library
The Studio can be used for: presentations and short lectures
