One Button Studio

One Button Studio Service Information

The One Button Studio is an automated video recording facility with a student focus, located in Z. Smith Reynolds Library behind the Service Desk.

No need to mess with camera, lighting, or audio equipment. Just bring a USB thumb drive and the studio will do the rest.

We believe in keeping it simple – taking the focus off of technology and onto the content. That’s why we’ve brought you the One Button Studio. The studio is equipped with a gray backdrop that can be illuminated with either green or blue light depending on what the person is wearing. The LED ceiling lights, microphone, and camera are activated when the USB thumb drive is inserted.

Once the participant is ready, simply click the button to begin recording. To stop recording, simply press the button again. Your session has been compressed and recorded onto your USB drive and saved as an M4V as well as an MP3 incase you just want the audio.

Post Production

After recording in the One Button Studio, you may be wondering how you might go about editing the footage. Wake Forest University has a variety of self-service options such as campus wide Adobe products ranging from Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects, and Illustrator.

You also have access to LinkedIn Learning, an on-line video tutorial site that walks you through almost any software program you can imagine. So if you are looking for a self-guided tour through Adobe Premiere, LinkedIn Learning is the place to visit. If you need additional resources, visit the computer lab located next to The Bridge in ZSR.
