One Button Studio

Welcome to the One Button Studio image

The One Button Studio is a user-friendly way for creating high-quality videos. Instructors and faculty have used the studios for a range of projects, from creating instructional videos to having their students complete projects ranging from ASL homework presentations to foreign language weather reports, and even music videos.

The studio has green screen technology that allows for users to be recorded in front of PowerPoint presentations, images, or even video. To reserve the OBS, please use the OBS Reservations portal, or stop in 120PH to sign up on the calendar.

After recording, you might consider editing your raw footage in one of the All-in-One studios.
