Media Studios


The two media studios are designed to provide high-quality audio and video recordings with only minimal training. Media Studio A (right, above) is outfitted with a green screen, while Media Studio B (left, above) is set up with a large digital display.

Use: Open to the Harvard community for 2 hour bookings during supported times. Please note that a training orientation is required prior to your first use of the studios.

  1. Which studio you would like (Studio A has the green screen; Studio B is better suited to larger groups)

  2. A short description of your project

  3. Preferred dates and times for use

  4. Setup requests and special technological needs
