413 Getting Started with Your In-House Video or Podcast Studio
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, October 26
Video & Media
Audiences today expect richer multimedia in their online experiences. As a result, it seems like producing videos, podcasts, animation, interactive video, or some other sort of multimedia is on every eLearning team’s mind. However, few are ready to launch into production without first building their knowledge about producing effective multimedia, much less submit a request for video and audio equipment or software without having a good plan in place.
In this session, you’ll find out what hardware components you’ll need to build a video and audio studio for producing high-quality training materials, podcasts, vlogs, and voice-overs. You’ll get recommendations on the best studio equipment for every budget. You’ll also learn about permutations of equipment that are necessary for different types of productions, such as talking head, on-site mobile shoots, interviews, “reality” productions, voice-overs, and low-production-value serials like vlogs. You’ll then find out about all the basic production equipment you’ll need to get started, including cameras, audio capture, lighting, tripods, and even suggested computer hardware and software for editing.
In this session, you will learn:
- About the features of cameras and microphones that are valuable to eLearning multimedia producers
- About the supporting equipment for an internal video studio, including lighting, backdrops, and tripods
- About multimedia editing suites you can use, and what their advantages and disadvantages for eLearning teams are
- About the budget and studio space requirements you’ll need to consider for your internal multimedia production needs
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
discussed in this session:
Video cameras, microphones and recorders, industry-leading screen capture software, video editing suites, and set equipment (including lights, sound abatement, and media storage).
