The Studio

ATTENTION! Advisors and Instructors

If you currently have, or know of programs and classes that require multimedia projects as part of the curriculum and would like to learn more about the studio, feel free to contact us for a tour of the facility. We find that new uses and ideas for the studio come from staff and students who have particular needs, which we try to integrate whenever possible. Just go to our Contacts Page and connect with our Coordinator.

The Studio in DCS is a straightforward, easy to use facility for recording both video and audio content. It is equipped with a camera, lighting, audio mixer and microphones, with backdrops for white, black or chromakey green and a system for recording everything to your own USB Flash or External Drive. Our Media Production Associates will be on site to get everything set up and remain on-hand to make any adjustments or troubleshoot as needed.

The Lighting is comprised of 2 key (front) lights, 2 backfill lights and a hair/shoulder light. All are preset with color and brightness. The Recording System is as simple as inserting your recording media, pressing Record and Stop. If all you need is an audio voiceover for use in a video or PowerPoint presentation, a free-standing microphone and recorder are included. The 3 background options are white (wall), black muslin or chromakey green, which can be pulled across from either side as desired. The Camera is a high-end, Canon camcorder with auto-focus and white balance already preset.
