Two innovative video setups

July 8, 2014

My colleagues in the Office of Information Technology at the University of Notre Dame are busy borrowing creative video production techniques from two sister institutions. They have already installed a lightboard, modeled after an installation developed at Northwestern. Faculty can now use a specially designed facility to create videos where they appear to be writing on a blackboard from behind.

My OIT friends are also working to replicate Penn State’s “One Button Studio” concept, a recording facility that can be used by people with no video experience. Inside the studio, a camera, lights, and sound equipment are set up and ready to use on demand. The user enters, plugs in a flash drive, and presses a button to start filming. Another press of the button stops the operation and a video file is saved on the flash drive.

You can read more about our local efforts in these blog posts: Making it easy to create video and We love bright ideas!.

A tip ‘o the hat to Charles Barbour, who is actually doing the work on these two projects.
