The TV STUDIO (RAM 001AA) is scheduled for UNC Asheville faculty, students and administration. It currently serves in three capacities: As an interview set, as a green screen facility, and as a facility to record headshots with a variety of pull-down backdrops.
Projects can be recorded in front of the green screen and edited later in post production or keyed "live" over computer generated backgrounds. Virtual sets are also available for "live" keying. Various academic departments regularly schedule the studio including New Media, Mass Communication, Drama, Atmospheric Science, and the Art and Management Departments.
Please note: There are 2 video recording facilities in Ramsey Library: the TV Studio and the Video Recording Studio (VRS). The TV Studio is a full service lab where technicians do the recording for you, and the VRS is a self service, Do-It-Yourself recording studio.
