The Multipurpose Studio space is our largest and most flexible recording space. We have a variety of camera, lighting, and background options available for video and audio recording. Recordings in this studio can also be broadcast to classrooms on campus or livestreamed on Facebook or YouTube. This studio is also equipped with a Logitech camera and monitor to support web conferencing and Zoom calls.
Projects in the Multipurpose Studio will be facilitated by the LXI Multimedia Producer who will work with you to develop a production plan and staff this space.

The Self-Service Studio space is designed as a quiet space, either to record audio content using personal devices or with the microphones, audio mixer, and recording software available in the room. This studio is also equipped with a Logitech camera and monitor to support web conferencing and Zoom calls. Faculty and staff may reserve 90-minute time slots in the Self-Service Studio using EMS.

The Broadcast Studio space is equipped with the remote control Readycam system, which allows users to appear live on any broadcast network or streaming platform without leaving the HLS campus. The system includes a high-definition camera, teleprompter, studio lights, and virtual background options. In addition to live broadcasts, this studio may also be used to create recorded media.
Faculty and staff can request use of the Broadcast Studio by submitting a ticket. LXI will staff this space when users are doing media hits.
LXI will train all first-time users of this space on the available equipment, and users may request additional training and support as needed using the “create course content” ticket option in Service Now.

Please note that content recorded in the Multimedia Studio should be related to the nature of the faculty or staff member’s work at HLS. All content, including recordings in the Self-Service Studio, must also adhere to all applicable HLS and Harvard University policies and standards, notably those around Copyright and use of the HLS or Harvard name.
If you have any questions about what types of content may be recorded and the applicability of HLS and Harvard policies or standards, please contact the LXI Multimedia Producer, Nicole Egidio.
How much does it cost?
There is currently no charge for HLS faculty and staff to use the Multimedia Studio, as we welcome our faculty and staff colleagues to this brand new space in the course of furthering their academic or other duties at HLS.
Can students use the studio?
The students may only use the Multimedia Studio for academic purposes under faculty direction, in the course of their classes or their employment as Teaching Fellows or Research Assistants. For all other purposes, students are encouraged to use the Cabot Library Media Studios.
When can I record my media?
The Multimedia Studio is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Reservations should be made at least 48 hours in advance through EMS. Requests for usage outside of these standard business hours or with less than 48 hours’ notice will be supported to the greatest extent possible to facilitate faculty participation in radio, television, or other broadcast opportunities. For these requests, please email LXI Multimedia Producer Nicole Egidio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will there be pre and/or post-production available for my project?
Yes, post-production services are available and may include such services as storyboarding a project, adding intros/outros to a podcast or video, or doing post-production edits for audio and light quality. Services available for a particular project will range in scope, depending on the nature and audience of the project.
Priority for these services will be given to academic and scholarly course content, as well as non-academic content designed for high-impact consumption by a large audience.
The LXI Multimedia Producer (Nicole Egidio – email@example.com) and the Assistant Dean for LXI (Leah Plunkett – firstname.lastname@example.org) look forward to consulting with you on the services available for your particular project.
