Lincoln Park Studios

​​SAC 266A

Located in the Schmitt Academic Center, this space features a sound treated booth with studio lights, speaker camera, document camera, microphone, one touchscreen monitor, and one viewing monitor.  Users can either use the MacOS machine provided in the studio or bring in their own device to attach to our capture card (HDMI or USB-C only).

This studio space is best utilized for presenting annotated slide decks (PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, etc.), demonstrating code, reviewing software or websites, or any materials best presented through the computer directly. The space will fit 1 speaker comfortably but can fit 2 presenters together with careful setup.

This is an advanced studio and must be scheduled 2 weeks in advance, as staff needs to be scheduled to run the equipment.

Located in the Schmitt Academic Center, this studio provides a 6 by 4 foot height adjustable Lightboard, presenter camera, professional audio, and lighting.  This space is best utilized for writing notes or diagraming content drawn by the presenter.  This space can optionally be fitted with a smaller (5x7 foot) green screen, with advance notice.

This space will fit 1 presenter on screen but is large enough for a few additional presenters to step on or off screen as needed (no more than 5).
