To reserve HPNP Zoom studio, contact Support:


Call 352-273-5058

When you record in the HPNP Zoom studio, you will need to choose Cloud recording, or save the MP4 to a portable storage device rather than locally on the recording computer. Then you will have to coordinate with me for uploading into Mediasite. It can be transferred via Google Drive. It’s free when you setup your UF Google account.

  • You will need to log into Google Drive with your email to share the file with me.
  • Your email will not be able to access the folder. You will have to select “switch users” instead of “request access.”
  • If you have never signed up for a Google account through UF before, you can sign up by clicking “Drive” here.
