Using Live Video Switching for Event Videos

Here’s why Live Switching is used for Our Event Video Productions…

Live Video Switching has made event video production easier and in most instances allowed it to look far more professional, not to mention being a significant time-saver, which translates into some serious cost savings. It lets you cover any event, such as a conference, seminar or sports event, with multiple camera angles, switching easily between them as the situation requires, thus effectively doing away with the need for expensive & time-consuming post-production editing.

With the recent introduction of consumer and prosumer level mixers, low cost/high resolution cameras and other affordable equipment, live switching has become a viable alternative that was not possible just a few short years ago. This free access to affordable, broadcast quality equipment has revolutionized Live Event Video Productions and Live Webcasting, giving it a fresh, professional and slick look that was missing just a few years ago.

Note: There are plenty of reasons to use Prosumer rather than broadcast quality equipment – obviously, cost is the major consideration. However, the quality of prosumer equipment available today is far better than just a couple of years ago and in most instances is more than adequate for event webcast productions. Prosumer equipment has been used to shoot a number of high quality documentaries, but a word of caution here – those guys really knew what they were doing!
