One of our recent events saw us provide conference filming, streaming and production services to Linaro, the leading collaborative engineering organisation who optimise open source software for the ARM eco-system, at their bi-annual ‘Connect’ event. Working in with NAV we have supported Linaro on these events since 2013, travelling worldwide to Hong Kong, Macau, San Francisco, Dublin, Las Vegas and most recently Budapest in Hungary.
As the official conference filming company onsite we provide keynote speaker presentation filming via a multi-camera set-up in the main conference room. The camera mix is projected in Full HD to the 400+ audience on multiple screens of up to 20ft wide, depending on the venue and room layout. Demand to attend the event is high, with this in mind we also stream the main conference live for remote viewing around the world. Linaro Connect is an open source event with a focus on collaboration, the live conference stream is available online to whoever wants to view it. Conference streaming to Facebook and YouTube is an effective and inexpensive solution that enables unrestricted conference access to a remote audience. A mixed feed of both the live presenters and their PowerPoint content on-screen and online means nobody at the event or around the world misses a thing!
We also provide on-site video production services for filming speaker interviews and Vox Pops. At events these can be edited on-site and uploaded to the clients social media channels, usually within a couple of hours. This quick turnaround of content on-site engages the delegates throughout the conference and delivers added value by extending engagement long after the event has finished.
You don’t always need a second full crew to produce your conference interviews. The production techniques we use to shoot and edit this type of conference video content are highly cost effective.
The sample film above was shot on a single camera, edited and uploaded on the day by a one man crew. Working with the clients marketing team we directed the interviewer to ask the 4x pre-determined questions, our camera operator initially shot the whole interview focussed on the interviewee. He then reshot the opening piece to camera, the interviewer’s questions and responses as separate takes at the end. Once edited together the interview appears to be a multi-camera shoot with good production values.
