Quick Record Studio

Most of the equipment in the Quick Record Studio is arranged for recording the perfect presentation, however, adjustments can be made by an ATC staff member to meet specific needs. 

To get started:

  • Come to the ATC with a USB thumb drive or hard drive to record the material straight to an MP4 file on your drive.
  • Position the equipment (and yourself) to the best advantage in front of the camera. You can use the camera remote to zoom in and out, and to raise and lower the lens.
  • Grab the recorder remote control and hit the red record button twice to begin recording.
  • When finished, hit the record button a final time to stop recording.
  • Remove your storage medium. 

Editing footage:

  • Some of the computers in the ATC are equipped with Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro.
  • If you need help editing footage, please make an appointment with an ATC staff member ahead of time and we will be happy to help.
