The One Button Studio turns any small room into a recording studio that anybody can use!
If you need to create video presentations, but don't want the burden of constant training and tech support, the One Button Studio is perfect for you. You simply:
- insert a thumb drive & follow the prompts
- Deliver your presentation
- Pull out your thumb drive and walk away with a professionally produced video.
It's that easy, day in and day out.
One Button Studio––One Click Purchase!
Inspired by the One Button Studio of Penn State fame, we used our A/V acumen to build out a One Button Studio Kit that is even more durable and reliable. It's now easier than ever to purchase and implement your own One Button Studio! No more digging through a long list of SKU's from different vendors in order to piecemeal a system together. No more multi-day setups just to get it up and running. Thanks to the experts at the DVEstore, you can now purchase a One Button Studio with one click! The convenience doesn't stop there, though. We offer full setup support and training so you can get the most out of your investment, without the pain of going it on your own.

One Button Studio has more uses than with just a specific task. However, there are at least three broad ways one can use it:
1) To save content that was already delivered elsewhere.
2) To record new content.
3) To practice a future performance of some kind.
Here are some more specific ideas:
- Develop material for an online or “flipped” course
- Conduct a mock interview (and post for peer feedback)
- Create a video introduction to a course
- Demonstrate a tool, technique, or process
- Archive a classroom presentation for re-use
- Capture a recording with a green screen or PowerPoint slides
- Perfect a micro-teaching lesson
- Record the video component of a larger assignment
- Deliver a lecture when you have to be away
- Present an academic paper (and send it to your advisor for critique)
- Hone the elevator speech for an academic poster
- Practice a group presentation (and submit it for accountability).
- Rehearse a dissertation defense
- Make a statement for job application
- Perform a digital story to post in an ePortfolio
- Warm up for a public speaking task
- Stage a recruitment video
- Prepare a professional development video
- Publish student content for a personal website
- Produce an audition for a job or music group
- Participate in a media competition
