How to set up a One Button Studio
Setting up a One Button Studio might seem daunting, but it’s more accessible than you think. Here’s a simplified guide to get you started:
Step 1: Choose a location
It’s best if the studio is located in a quiet space with enough room for your studio equipment and any props or decor you may need for your recordings.
Step 2: Source equipment
- High-definition camera (with an HDMI or SDI out)
- Professional microphone (shotgun or lavalier)
- A green screen
- Studio lighting
- Epiphan Pearl Mini video production system
Optional: Consider equipping your studio with a busylight to let others know when the studio is in use.
Step 3: Install and configure
Set up the studio equipment (read our “5 steps to creating the ultimate lecture recording studio” article to learn how).
To set up the One-Button part, connect your camera and audio to the Pearl Mini. From there, configure Single Touch recording on the device. You can also configure whether the video gets uploaded to the cloud or downloaded to a flash drive. When the configuration is complete, your users will be able to start and stop the recording by pressing a single button on the Pearl Mini’s touch screen.
Step 4: Create a user guide
To ensure smooth operation, create a user guide for your One Button Studio with simple steps to follow. Include instructions on how to power the equipment, start recording, and access recorded files.
Step 5: Test test test
Bring in students and teachers and test out the setup on them. Take note of friction points and eliminate them. Make sure your setup is easy for everyone to use and produces consistent, high-quality results.
One Button Studios are a game-changer in education, providing a user-friendly, versatile, and cost-effective solution for creating high-quality video content. Whether you’re a teacher looking to engage your students, a student aiming to improve your presentation skills, or an institution seeking to enhance its educational offerings, a One Button Studio can be your ticket to success.
