Studio Recording Options

Studio Recording Options

The Video Studio is available to record video presentations for academic credit courses and continuing education programs.  The information below will help explain the tools and technologies available for use in the studio.  Please take a moment to explore all the options available to you!  We have a team of studio operators and video experts ready to assist you.

The studio is equipped to do the following:

Green Screen Recording

Provides the capability for the instructor to seamlessly share the screen with their presentation materials using a layering process performed by the videographer. This process enhances the level of interaction the presenter has with slides, animations, and transitions within their presentation. In order to increase the level of flexibility, we offer two Chroma key green screen walls capable of shooting:

  • Small scenes, e.g. stand alone presentations
  • Large scenes, e.g. panel discussions

Green Screen Recording Guidelines:

  • Do not wear green clothing, e.g. full green shirt or blouse, white shirt with a gator head logo
  • Avoid busy attire, e.g. plaid shirts
  • PowerPoint slides must be received at least two business days prior to shooting
  • Slides must be formatted in 16:9 aspect ratio
  • Slides must use a minimum of 24 point font size
  • Scripts and/or notes for teleprompter must be received at least two business days prior to shooting
  • Scripts must be in the following formats: Word document, eg .doc or Plain Text document, e.g. .txt
  • If the PowerPoint will be behind you on the screen, allow space within the slide for you to stand without covering your content (1/3 of the screen)

Mediasite Recording

Mediasite Recording

A MediaSite presentation consists of two separate video windows. The first window is of the presenter giving the lecture and the second window contains screen captures from a PowerPoint presentation. Advantages of this type of presentation include reduced production time and a more efficient editing process. When preparing for a MediaSite Recording, the Instructional Designer and Videographer will provide detailed information regarding your recording session.

MediaSite Recording Guidelines

  • Mediasite captures screen shots of PowerPoint; no animations or transitions
  • No video or moving links
  • Minimum 24 pt. font size
  • Be mindful of the amount of text on a single slide
  • Use sans serif fonts (e.g. Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, Palatino)

On-Location Video Recording

Shooting on-location provides faculty a unique opportunity to use a familiar environment where they may feel more at ease in front of the camera while presenting their material. As this type of recording requires additional coordination of equipment and personnel resources, a preliminary meeting with the Instructional Designer and Videographer is required.   

On-Location Video Recording Guidelines

  • Monitor weather and schedule appropriately
  • Be aware of the time of day and check for shadows from adjacent structures
  • Be aware of traffic noise (both vehicle and pedestrian), as well as surrounding noise that might interfere with the shoot
  • Schedule at least 8 hours of time to allow for delays and retakes

Audio Over Content Recording

Audio Over Content Recording

This type of recording allows the presenter to be the voice behind the video, similar to how animated movies are created. Our studio is equipped with two professional grade microphones and the software required to make a highly professional presentation. The final product is a streaming video of your PowerPoint with your voice in the background.

Audio Over Content Recording Guidelines

  • Schedule at least two hours of time per one hour of content recording to allow for retakes
  • Drink only room temperature water before and during recording (cold water can make you cough)
