New Equipment and Upgrades at Bryan Center Studios

The studios offer enhanced features and capabilities for video, photography, podcasting, and editing

The Bryan Center Studios, the university’s central multimedia production facility, has recently added new equipment and upgrades to its four studios and digital production workspace. The studios provide Duke students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to create professional-quality media projects for academic, or business purposes.

The Bryan Center Studios is located in the basement of the “greenhouse” section of the Bryan Center. Reservations are required and can be made via Outlook. Learn more about making reservations and checking studio availability at

  • Studio 1, a large, versatile studio for university and health system video production staff only, now has a SONY FX6 full frame camera that will improve the look of footage, especially green screen footage. It also has a white paper background that is useful for both video and photography shoots. A new teleprompter, confidence monitor, and camera tripod give the studio more flexibility and ease of use.
  • Studio 3, a self-service video studio with a green screen and a black curtain, has a new teleprompter and confidence monitor (a screen that sits on the floor and faces the presenter) making self-monitoring much easier. The confidence monitor also acts a screen for the built in Mac Studio to allow recording directly to software like Camtasia.
  • Studio 4, an acoustically treated room for audio recording, has added a video monitor and camera for remote Zoom guests for radio or podcast recordings.
  • The Hotel Space, a dedicated editing room, now has a powerful new Mac Studio able to handle higher resolution files for editing. The workstation is equipped with Final Cut Pro, Motion and Logic as well as Abelton. The Adobe Creative Suite, which requires your own subscription, is also installed.
  • Studio 5 is a new space, suitable for 1-2 people and equipped with a professional HD camera and microphone. It is available to all Duke faculty, staff, and students and offers a quiet and well-lit location for participating in remote interviews via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
