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. Additional manuals and training resources are linked within the Equipment List below.

3. To record in 4K, bring an SD XC memory card for each of the studio cameras you intend to use (cards may be available for 3-day check out at the Library Service Desk on Level 2). You can also use cards to record in HD. A 64 GB SD card will accommodate about 140 min of footage in HD and 70-120 min in 4K depending on chosen bitrate).

For recording in HD, you can use SD cards or a cardless recording option to a provided USB-C Hard Drive (you will then share your recording files to your cloud space or your own media using the studio computer; see the Multicamera Recording section in the guide for details).
