Students may reserve the Video Booth for 3 hours per day and up to 9 hours per week. Faculty and staff who would like longer reservations should email Julie_N_Gonzalez@baylor.edu.
6. What do I need to bring?
We recommend a 4GB or bigger USB drive. You will need 1GB of free space for every 30 minutes of footage.

If your USB is not formatted correctly you will receive a notification when you plug it into the port. For assistance reformatting your USB, see a TechPoint staff member.
8. What kind of file will my recording be in?
An exported .mp4 file
9. I don't know how to use recording equipment. Is the video booth for me?
Yes! The video booth is designed to operate at the touch of a single button. No previous recording experience is required.
10. Why is the audio is out of sync on my recording in Windows Media Player?
Windows Media Player does not support the playback of Video Booth files. The file itself is properly synced and will playback correctly using VLC or QuickTime Player.
11. What should I wear on camera?
A good rule is to avoid overly bright colors like red, pink, yellow, or stark white, shiny fabrics, sparkly jewelry or metal, and stripes or other complicated patterns. Solid neutral colors like dark blue, grey, purple, cream, or brown look best on camera.
