    One Button Studio

    Create your own videos. Fast. Easy. Free.

    Credit students, faculty and staff may reserve the Library's One Button Studio to create videos. We are located in the Library, Room 125. Individuals or small groups (max 5 people) may reserve the room for up to 2 hours per day.

    What is the One Button Studio?

     The One Button Studio (OBS) is a simplified video recording setup that can be used without any previous video production experience. The design of the studio allows you to create high-quality and polished video projects without having to know anything about lights and cameras. You only need to bring your flash drive and push a single button!

    HCC’s One Button Studios provide everything needed to create a polished video project:

    • High definition camera
    • High-directional condenser microphone
    • Studio lighting
    • Computer and projector for displaying presentations
    • Slide advance remote
    • Green screen

    Uses for the Studio

    For Students

    • Just practice in front of the camera!
