AV Studio

Professors record an online audio lecture in the AV Studio in the MaxxSouth Digital Media Center.

The AV Studio in the MaxxSouth Digital Media Center is a reservable space designed to allow faculty and student to quickly and easily record audio or video presentations. The studio is set up so that a patron can walk in with a jump drive and with just a few mouse clicks can record professional video of a speech, lecture or other presentation. Patrons may likewise easily record audio files using the dual microphone setup.

The lightboard provides a unique lecture experience. Diagramming sentences and schematics, plotting and writing formulas, or even just writing out lecture notes can all be done "mid-air" while you face the camera to deliver your instruction. Draw on the illuminated glass just as you would a standard chalk or dry-erase board while recording your lecture. With a quick video edit, the video is flipped so your writing and drawings are shown in the correct orientation for your students. A lightboard is a great way to supplement lectures that require the ability to write or draw to illustrate concepts.
