One Button Studio

Welcome to the WSU Libraries’ One Button Studio. Using the studio’s technology to create your own video is easy. There are instructions marked in the studio for your reference. You will need a flash drive to store the video. If you don’t have one of your own, you can borrow one from the circulation desk.


The One Button Studio is a simplified video recording setup that can be used without any previous video production experience. The design of the studio allows you to create high-quality and polished video projects without having to know anything about lights and cameras. You only need to bring your flash drive with you and push a single button. The One Button Studio solution drastically simplifies the video production workflow, eliminating several time-consuming steps. The end result is a studio experience that requires the bare minimum of time and effort while simultaneously providing a consistently high-quality result packaged on a thumb drive in a standard format video file.
