Technical Operation of ONE BUTTON STUDIO in Samuel Read Hall Hall 316
1) Users must sit at the appropriate station labeled for the room they wish to observe.
2) When an operator sits at a station, they may find the screen blank. Power to the monitor may have been turned off. There is a power button under the lower right-hand side of each monitor.
3) When on, each station should be showing the ONE BUTTON STUDIO app. If it does not, try using the mouse to restart app or the entire computer (if needed). It will automatically login and start the application. When it asks for the <Volumes> drive, just click <OK>. If it asks for the <Indigo Server>, click <Cancel>.
4) Follow the directions on the screen to get started. When finished with your recording, users must press the large button again to stop the recording, and wait for the application to tell you it is OK to remove the flash drive.
1) Use the joystick on the camera controller to move the camera <left>, <right>, <up>, <down>. Twist the joystick to the right to zoom <in>. Twist the joystick to the left to zoom <out>. Note: There is a small delay between what you do with the joystick and what you see on the screen (about 1 second). For best results, only move the camera a little at a time.
2) DO NOT press any buttons on the camera controller.
1) While recording, you can listen in on conversations with the headphones.
