One-Button Studio: About One Button Studio

Guide to using the self-service recording studio inside the Ara City Campus Library


One Button Studio is a self-service recording studio inside the Ara City Campus Library. The studio allows you to practice and record your presentation, either as an individual or in a group setting.

The design of the studio allows you to create high-quality and polished video projects, without having to know anything about technical stuff like lights and cameras. The only thing you need is a booking and your own USB drive!

How it works

To use One Button Studio, you will need to:

Once in the room:

  • Switch the lights on.
  • Insert your USB drive into the dock.
  • Press the Red Button to start recording.
  • Do your presentation, and then press the Red Button to finish recording.
  • Remove your USB drive.
