Key Features and Benefits

Inserting a flash drive and pushing just one button was all I needed to do to record by myself with high-quality audio and video.

It’s as easy as pushing one button, hence the name. All you have to do is reserve some time, which you can do on site or online; bring a USB drive to save your video file; walk into the studio; plug in your USB drive where designated; and push one button to start and stop your video recording. The lighting, audio, and camera setup is automatically taken care of for you.

The studio is ideal for recording short lectures, student video assignments, project pitches, or presentation or interview practice sessions.
