You are not required to attend the training if you are reserving the Studio for audio recording or if you are bringing your own cameras for video or photo production.

There is an Equipment Guide binder available in the Studio for your reference.

Please note that we do not provide training on audio production software in the Studio. We recommend  LinkedIn Learning,  an online learning platform that helps you learn the desired skills remotely at your own pace.

3. Bring an SD memory card for each of the studio cameras you intend to use. (For recording in 4K, an SD XC card is required. For recording in HD, either SD, SD HC, or SD XC can be used. A 64 GB SD card will accommodate about 140 min of footage in HD and 70-120 min in 4K depending on chosen bitrate).
