One Button Studio


The One Button Studio (OBS) is an automated video production space that allows its users to easily create high-quality videos without any prior experience with video production tools. This service has been brought to Southeast Missouri State University by the Heather MacDonald Greene Multimedia Center in Kent Library. The OBS was developed by Pennsylvania State University and was selected as one of the best new library services by the American Library Association (ALA) in 2014.


Project Ideas
The OBS is useful in any instance where video can be used to enhance viewer engagement.

Practice a presentation for class, record in front of the green screen or film studio components of a larger video assignment.

Deliver an introduction to an online course, present a research paper, record a lecture or create a demonstration.

Things to Bring
All you need is flash drive (FAT formatted) and an idea. HMGMC student employees are available for assistance with formatting your flash drive and any other problem that may arise.

Although not required, reservations can be made by contacting the HMGMC service desk at 573.986.4978 or at Otherwise, the studio is used on a first-come, first-serve basis.
