Video Recording Studios

Staff of the University of Adelaide can access a self-serve video recording facility, the Barr Smith Recording Studio. This is located in the Barr Smith Library on Level 2 Barr Smith South.

This studio is larger than Napier 112 and can accommodate more conversation/discussion style presentations (e.g. a panel discussion). You can record a presentation, camera feed or both, simultaneously (Picture in Picture) or use 'live keying' against a green screen (this shows the presenter standing in front of the image or presentation that may be on a screen).
