About the One Button Studio

The studio, located in Innovation Commons Room B (Redpath, main floor), provides a soundproofed space and equipment for recording audio and video presentations. Equipment includes a high-definition camera, boom microphone, and professional lighting. Best of all, it’s designed so that you don’t require any technical knowledge to make use of it – all you need are a USB drive and your presentation skills!

Using the One Button Studio

To use the studio, you must first make a booking with your McGill email address using the online booking system. When you arrive, an Innovation Commons Student Assistant will let you into the studio. Simply put your USB drive in the slot, wait for the prompt, then press the button to start recording; press it again to stop, wait for the prompt, and then remove the drive. You’re done! And all with just one button – wow!

We thank the SSMU Library Improvement Fund for their generous support of this initiative.
