Share a photo of your A/V setup!

Hello Instructors!


This week we announced that we’re dedicating the entire month of May to everything Audio Visual. Discussions, tips, events, and resources, you’ll find it all right here in the Instructor Community!


To kick things off, we thought it might be fun to see what you are working with!


In the comments below, show us a photo of your audio/visual setup!

Still pretty new to the magical online world of Udemy! I'm sharing a visual story of my recording studio because I'm entertained by it and wanted to share my version of an audio/visual setup.

Images are in order of description.

  1. Stage one of my backdrop for the visual ~ this is a rolling clothes hanger organizer of some sort, and you'll notice there's a white sheet hanging. This photo is to explain the backdrop, and to show a wall which doesn't appear on my videos.
  2. Same clothes organizer thing, but now extended and against a blank wall in the same room
  3. Two samples of blankets/quilts which I switched for each lesson
  4. A shot of me teaching two separate lessons ~ notice the blanket/quilt is different for each.
  5. The third wall in my recording studio ~ loud neighbors when the window is open along with beautiful, yet disruptive, blowing wind and chirping birds
  6. My view while I record into the Blue Yeti mic and onto the iMac camera ~ this is wall #4


Thank you for taking a look at my creative zone... 😁

Thank you for this thread, I am flabbergasted! 


I am new with the A/V setup and just started working on my first online course here, and browsing this thread gave me more knowledge on how I should set up my own A/V room.


Great equipment everyone!!

After recording since 2017 in front of a green canvas, followed by recording in my office, in 2022 I was able to realize my dream of a dedicated studio. Right next to my house. 


It's just 2.5 x 3 m (approx. 8 x 9 ft) small, which is a challenge regarding acoustics. But with self-made acoustic panels, professional panels, etc. I managed to get a decent sound.


The best things about a dedicated studio (mine has only a small window, which I cover with another acoustic panel):

- Constant lighting conditions, no matter the weather or the time of day

- I can record NOW, whenever I want to, and don't have to invest 1 hour to set everything up to record a 5 min video

- I have multiple options for settings (one with a dark background, used for talking heads, another with a white wall for slide presentations)


I use 2x  LED panels as main lights and 4x small light tubes for color effects.

Hope this is helpful and inspiring for some of you.

What do you think about my setup?

Do you recognize the badge?





PS: I have a couple of videos taken when I did the renovation showing the changes in acoustics, depending on the panels. If you are interested, please leave a note and I post the videos.

Hi @AxelRittershaus


Thank you for sharing your setup. How amazing that you have your dedicated recording studio! 


I would love to see videos of the acoustic changes, depending on the panel! I am sure this will be helpful for fellow instructors, especially, as our topic of the month is AV!
