Small Origination Room Reference

Small Origination Rooms can be used to produce high quality video and audio for recordings and virtual meetings.


Employees who would like to have a high quality image for video recording in Canvas Studio or during virtual meetings and classes.


Sometimes a higher quality video and audio solution is desirable when recording video for instruction or attending online meetings. The small room origination equipment allows a controlled environment complete with lights, DSLR camera, and desktop microphone for recordings and meetings.


This equipment is available in BEC 31 and RF 105.


The Canon camera can be used as a video source and works the same as a traditional webcam but with a much cleaner image.

In Canvas Studio or in virtual meetings, the video input should be shown as Cam Link 4K.
