EVENTS - Live Streaming
How many cameras will I need?: 1 to many.
Min camera requirement: You will need at least one camera to capture where the main action is, i.e a performer, stage or speaker.
Optional cameras: Wide shot of the whole event allowing the online viewer a chance to see everything.
Our advice: Normally on live streamed events we would use a min of three cameras.
What sort of lighting do we need?: If the event is being hosted in large hotel or proffesional venue then normally they would have suffient lighting. We would strongly suggest you mention our need for good lighting to the venue. If the venue cannot provide this or of the event is outside for example then let us know in advance and we can supply lighting.
What do we do about sound?: Most venues will have a Public address system and can supply us with an overall sound feed. Please do mention to the venue that we will need a sound feed from them. If we are supplying a microphone please remember this is just for our sound recording it is not a PA system.
Tip: If your live streamed event uses any music, you will need to ensure this 100% non published work or ensure you use original music.

CONFERENCE / TALKS - Live Streaming
How many cameras will I need?: 1 to many. You will need a camera to capture where the main speaker is stood.
Addtional cameras: A wide shot of a panel and stage area, or a wide shot of the audience. If your event has a panel and a presenter the stream will benefit from a min of two cameras which we would vision mix to cover the person who is speaking at that specific time.
Our advice: Normally with talks or conferences we would use a min of three cameras.
What lighting will you need?: If your conference is in a large venue it will normally have stage lighting supplied. We would advise mentioning to the venue that we will also be filming. If your conference is in your own office we can discuss this with you.
What about sound?: Most venues will be able to supply us with a sound feed from their sound desk. Please do mention this to the venue organiser when booking. If we are supplying a microphone please remember this is just for our sound recording it is not a PA system.
Tip: If your live streamed conference uses any music, you will need to ensure this 100% non published work or ensure you use original music.

FESTIVALS & MUSIC EVENTS - Live Streaming
Cameras needed: 1 to many.
Crucial shot: A front on view of the stage.
Other shots: A wide shot of the crowd or main venue. On stage cameras also help capture the action well.
Lighting needed: If you're in a dark venue you will need much more lighting than normal for filming. Speak to the Lighting Designer and suggest they speak to us to advise on lighting for the stream as well as the physical audience.
Sound: Mixing Desk or on board mic.
We can either take a feed from the mixing desk or worse case we can record the sound on an external microphone.
Tip: Live streaming at music festivals nearly always requires a satellite broadband connection due to the lack of available wired or cellular internet. We can provide this.
