Studio Features

Innovation Studios at the George CCIT Lab offers several recording options, allowing faculty to record content standing with a 60-inch interactive HD screen, or seated using a 22-inch Wacom pen display monitor. While using picture in picture mode, instructors can deliver a lesson alongside their slides, making for a more engaging lecture capture video. The studio is also equipped with a variety of microphones, including wireless in-ear and condenser mics, to record high quality voice over and narration.

With the interactive control panel, users can set their desired recording mode with a simple touch of the screen, and have the video saved to their USB device. For additional editing capabilities, the studio is equipped with Camtasia software to prepare videos for posting online.

So whether you’re new to recording or a film pro, we’re confident that Innovation Studios can help support your continued innovation in teaching and learning here at Delaware Technical Community College.
