Studio Makerspace

The library’s A/V Studio Makerspace makes it easy to create a video or TV show with the One Button process, which records and saves an mp4 file directly to a USB flash drive with the push of a button.

The studio can be used to create programming for BCN-TV, the library’s public access station, or for posting online, on social media or personal use. You can also use it to practice for an interview or record a presentation for school or work. Click here to find out how easy it is to use.

When you’re done filming, laptops with Adobe Premiere Elements will be available in the library for additional video editing.
