Handouts from Producing a Webcast From Soup to Nuts

Last week at Streaming Media East, I held 2 three-hour sessions (parts 1 & 2) on Producing a Webcast from Soup to Nuts. The descriptions are below, as are the handouts for downloading. 

SM2: Producing A Webcast From Soup To Nuts: Part One

Part one of this workshop will discuss factors to consider when choosing a camera, audio system, lighting gear, background, and when and how to choose a video mixer. This session will also focus on the nuts and bolts of production, covering skills like setting exposure, connecting camcorders to microphones and soundboards, setting up lighting, and what kind of clothing you should direct your on-camera subjects to wear. Attendees will leave this session knowing the gear they need to produce a high quality live event and how to use it.

Part two of this workshop will focus on streaming, planning, and implementation. Topics covered include how to choose a webcast platform, alternatives for delivering the encoded stream to the streaming server, and bandwidth requirements. The session will also cover how to choose a live streaming encoder and how to configure the encoder for delivery to your selected platform. Finally, the session will focus on planning, and attendees will receive planning and implementation checklists that will help them execute their live events as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
