FAQs

Can I save my work to the studio computer?

No. Faculty are responsible for bringing their own portable storage device or utilizing their Google Drive for saving any work. Work that is saved to the studio desktop will be deleted at the end of the day. 

What should I bring on the day of my scheduled studio time?

The studio will provide all high-end video equipment and software necessary to create videos, presentations, and audio recordings. Faculty are responsible for bringing any presentation materials, scripts, or props for their projects. 

Are food and drinks allowed inside the studio?

Faculty are allowed a bottled drink with a resealable lid. No open beverages, or food of any kind are allowed inside of the studio room. 

What equipment and software does the studio provide?

The studio provides an HP desktop with Windows 7 operating system, a Logitech Webcam C930e for filming, 3 Logitech H390 USB computer headsets with microphones, A Blue Yeti professional microphone, Camtasia 8 for screen and camera recording, tripods for use with camera or phone, Green screen, Sound proofing foam blocks installed on the walls, and professional lighting. Any additional necessary equipment must be provided by the faculty member. 

What should I wear if using the green screen during filming?

Any green clothing items will inhibit editing of the green screen and should thus be avoided. Reflective jewelry or other large reflective accessories may also cause issues when editing the green screen. Glasses may cause a glare or reflect the green screen as well, but this can usually be resolved by rearranging the studio lights.
