One Button Studio
The One Button Studio (OBS) is an automated video recording venue that requires no technical skills on how to use camera and audio equipment, you simply press a button and start talking. This studio is similar to the lecture recording venues except in that the booking system is linked to your staff number. Your videos will be accessible on your Vula Home page, under “My Videos”.
The use of the OBS is built to accommodate a Do-It-Yourself approach, this means the CILT Digital Media Unit and OBS manager will not do the services for you, unless otherwise negotiated.
To gained the maximum benefit of the OBS recording process you need to be fully prepared before coming to the studio.
Additional services: If you want to read your script from the teleprompter, this will be a “paid for” service. Please send your request to use the teleprompter to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org

The OBS is located in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching department, Room 7.51, PD Hahn Building, Floor 7, Upper Campus. Follow the signs along the way.
WHAT IS A LIGHTBOARD?
The Lightboard is a glass chalkboard pumped full of light. It's for recording video lecture topics. You face towards your viewers, and your writing glows in front of you.
When using the lightboard (rates can be viewed here), there are some essential details to note:
- DO NOT wear anything with a LOGO on, especially your shirt.
- DO NOT wear dark colours (e.g. black or navy)
- DO wear neutral colours
- As a SUGGESTION, wear button-up shirts (this always looks good on videos like these)
(different examples coming soon...)
This studio is only available to record videos for academics who are recording lectures, doing interviews (maximum 2 people in the studio), screencasts, audio recording and blended course material.
A maximum of 2 hours per session is advisable for a booking. The background is grey and cannot be changed unless requested.
The person booking the session will receive all the videos of their session into their own Vula video series. If you want to book but have another person receive the videos, please inform the OBS manager before recording and your videos will be redirected accordingly.
We take no responsibility for videos that were not captured, edited and published correctly if instructions were not followed. Our responsibility is ensuring the equipment is functional and the integration into Vula is working.
