One Button Studio


Welcome to Penn State Scranton's One Button Studio!  

Located in Dawson 117B and available for use by faculty, students, and staff, the One Button Studio is 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, polished video projects without having any previous experience or specialized knowledge.

When you plug in your flash drive, the One Button Studio activates: the camera and microphone are turned on and three-point lighting is engaged, all on your choice of backgrounds.

Video recording is automatic, and the final video file is automatically saved to your flash drive.
