CIRT Video Studio
The CIRT Video Studio consists of a green screen video recording area, a sound isolation booth for high-quality voice recordings, and also a space to record video using a lightboard. The studio features professional-grade lighting, dedicated studio cameras, a teleprompter, and professional audio.
The Creative Team has designed the video studio to be flexible and quickly configurable for faculty needs. We can do simple video edits (like trimming the beginning and end) on the spot and then quickly transfer the video to your flash drive, Canvas Studio, OneDrive, YouTube, or social media accounts. More complex productions will take a bit more time. We provide hands-on support so that all you need to worry about is your presentation. Our goal was to create a studio with greater flexibility, higher quality, and quick turnaround. Below are some of the studio's components and a sample video of snippets of studio projects.
The CIRT Video Studio is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you would like to book time in the Studio, you can visit our calendar, to schedule a date and time - https://cirt.libcal.com/space/76632.
High-Quality Rapid Lecture Capture
Faculty may reserve the studio for high-quality rapid lecture capture. All you need to do is schedule an appointment. You can send us your presentation as a PowerPoint or Keynote file or bring it with you on a drive. We will have everything ready for you to record. You come in for your presentation, record it, and we will have the video ready for you within minutes after you finish your lecture.
The green screen capability (also known as "chroma keying” or just "keying") allows the ability to replace the green background with graphic backgrounds, still photographs, motion video, or you can even embed yourself in slide presentations using PowerPoint or Keynote.
The 6x8’ recording booth provides a quiet, private space to record an audio file for use in podcasts, screencasts, or voiceover for video. Recording of instruments can be done here as well.

The Learning Glass™ (lightboard)
We have added a lightboard to the studio that will allow faculty to be recorded on video while writing on a glass screen - think of it as a see-through whiteboard! Check out a brief demonstration video below.
For most of the types of recordings that are possible in the studio, we have added the capability to do “live” recordings to a flash drive, so that once you are finished, you can leave with a video file. We’ll be adding much more functionality as we continue to build out the studio during the coming semesters. Whether you need to create course announcements, videos for your Canvas modules, demonstrations, or interviews, our studio should meet your needs.
The CIRT Video Studio, audio sound booth, and lightboard are all available for faculty use! If you need help with video creation and publishing, want to consult on a project, or simply have questions, contact us at email@example.com.
