Here are some classes we recommend taking prior to using the TV Studio:
Once you are done using the studio, please clean up and leave the studio in the condition you found it, or even better. A lot of people use the studio and it is imperative that you clean up after yourself. Failure to do so will make LPM staff and members unhappy. Repeated notices about cleaning up with result in disciplinary action.
The Studio is available for reservations via our reservation system. To make a reservation, please vist this link. If you need to learn how to make a reservation, please go here.
LPM has a ADJ 24 channel lighting board in the studio.
The ADJ currently controls 8 lights that are connected via DMX.
Lights 1-3 are the front lights; Lights 5-8 are the back lights
Power button is on the back of the device.
Vinyl backdrop roller
LPM has a vinyl backdrop roller that you can use for photography, videos, interviews, and more.
It is somewhat tricky to roll down as the vinyl is heavier than you think. NOTE: do not use the chains to roll up/down the vinyl. It is too heavy and will result in the vinyl rolling down too fast and/or breaking the chain.
To roll down:
- 1.Use the safety ladder and position it next to the
- 2.take out the safety grip clip
- 3.Slowly roll the vinyl down to your desire length
- 4.Use the safety grip clip (as pictured below) to prevent the vinyl roll from continuing to roll down.
To Roll back up:
-Follow the instructions above, but in reverse :)
LPM has a video routing system that lets you connect up to 3 (hardwired) cameras from the TV Studio to the Live Streaming room.
This is done via an SDI routing system that was in place prior to LPM being in the building.
We have 3 HDMI cables that you can connect cameras into. These camera's then show up in vMix as DeckLink Duo 2, 3, and 4.
LPM has several globe LED lights in the studio you can use. Please watch the video to learn how to use it.
