The Studio in DCS, for enrolled student use only, is a straightforward, easy to use facility for recording both video and audio content. It is equipped with a camera, lighting, teleprompter, 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, MS-DOS (FAT) format. Our staff 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 Camera is a high-end, Canon camcorder with auto-focus and white balance already preset. For a quick primer, watch the Step-by-Step video located on this webpage.
