Why Hire A Professional Audio Engineer?

There are certain things you should leave to the pros and recording your events is definitely one of them. If you want to make sure everything is captured, clear and heard without any problems hiring a professional audio engineer is a must. After all, you have plenty of other things to take care of during the day of the event.

Why Record Your Event?

Whether you want to use the content in your next podcast, in a future promo video or simply to look back on as a fond memory, it’s always a smart choice to record your event.

Experience Is Key

Why leave something so important in the hands of an amateur? Recording your live events is something that shouldn’t be overlooked and if key pieces are left out, you’re going to regret it. That’s why you should choose somebody with years of experience and technical training, like the pros at CitiView.

Clarity

Want your audio to sound to be crystal clear? With state of the art equipment and technology you’ll get exactly what you’re looking for. This may not be the case if you decide to go with a beginner.

The Early Days

When audio and video streaming first came into play in the late ‘90s, it wasn’t all that fun. Depending on the speed of your computer and internet connection, you could spend more time watching a black screen, or at the word “buffering”, than you actually spent watching video. But as technology has evolved, the streaming process is much more user-friendly today.

How It Works

In a nutshell, information travels in the form of satellite signals or radios waves to your electronic device. This way you can watch and listen to what’s going all across the globe in real-time.

Incorporating Social Media Into Your Live Event

Engage your audience

 

People spend more time on social media while connected to the internet than on any other project, according to findings in this Business Insider article. You can use this to your advantage in your live event by featuring social media interaction and using it as a focal point.

By using hashtags and content aggregating services, you can now show a live Twitter feed of participants in your event. Advertise your event-exclusive hashtag in marketing materials and keep track in real time what people are saying. CitiView technicians can help set up the software interface to make sure this is a seamless transition.

The best way to show these interactions is through TVs and projection. By strategically placing a 42” monitor on a dual pole stand by your registration desk, you can show not only program materials, but also photos and slides from the event hashtag. Put a projector with a long-throw lense on a truss stand, and you can have your presenters flanked by a live twitter feed, allowing audience participation beyond just regular Q&A and powerpoints.

Award Winning Documentary Filmmaker Ken Burns at The Cooper Union, NYC.

 

CitiView Audio Visual Speakers Video Lighting Ken Burns

Two-time Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns at The Cooper Union. LED uplighting on columns and IMAG, plus multiple Macbook slide presentations switching between projection screens.

The Heart and Soul Charitable Fund hosted their 25th anniversary celebration at The Cooper Union in Cooper Square, NYC with CitiView Audio Visual coordinating all lights, camera, and sound for the event.

 

On the run of show was a brief introduction followed by Ken Burns delivering his acceptance speech at the podium. Following that, Christie’s Auctioneer Rob Gordry took over on a wireless microphone and led a successful charitable auction, raising money for community programs around NYC.

The client requested LED uplighting on columns, IMAG, multiple screen switching from MacBooks on all three projection screens, and multiple wired and wireless microphones. The client’s videographer set a stationary DSLR Canon 5D  and sent an SDI signal through an adaptor to the Barco Presentation Pro II switcher while also recording from his multiple cameras.

 

CitiView technicians arranged stage and pit lighting for the speakers, and worked directly with the client and their videographers to ensure the camera images were properly balanced for both the IMAG and also the record.

 

The audience was treated to a live fiddle and accordion performance, in celebration of The Cooper Union’s and Ken Burn’s history and interest in the Civil War. The Great Hall’s acoustics carried the music without need for amplification.
