Capturing the video footage of your class is a critical step to starting a video distance learning program. There are many viable options when it comes to how your capture your footage. Regardless of the technique you use, there are a couple of principals that need to be followed:
- Higher the resolution the better. For our hard-wired systems, we shoot in 4k resolution to have plenty of room to digitally pan and zoom around the classroom following the instructor.
- Broadcast quality audio is a must. You can get away with lower quality video if your audio is solid. Bad audio is a dead giveaway of an amateur production.
- Choose the medium appropriate. If you are teaching a piece of software, a simple setup of a single camera, some lighting, and a screencast software might be appropriate. A full classroom might be appropriate for others.
Regardless of the style of classroom footage you choose, we have an option to meet your needs and budget.
Here are Some of Your Class Capture Options

Hard-wired Classroom Rental
If you have a handful of classes to capture, it might be more economical to rent a classroom already wired to capture video. RREA Media has a classroom available in the Spring, Texas area for rent if that fits your class. This classroom includes a three camera shot, screen cast footage, and broadcast quality microphones to ensure your footage looks quality and professional.

In-studio Presentation Style
For those that do not have the need for an audience for their classes, the in-studio presentation style class might be the answer. This technique offers the flexibility of scheduling an appointment to teach as many classes as you want. With the benefit of not paying for a classroom setup, this is an economical alternative to capturing a library of instruction.
Generally this consists of a single camera and a slide package that is edited together to make the classroom video. This is done in the RREA Media studio in Spring, Texas.

For those whose instruction is mainly computer based, the in-studio software demo style might be the answer. This can be done in the RREA Media studios or we offer a package to outfit an office in your location to capture this content.
This generally consists of a single camera, a screencast, and a microphone. This allows you to get into great detail about a computer program or software.
On-location Live Cameramen
If you have a couple of days of classes and want us to send a camera crew to capture the class in your classroom, that is available as well. We will set up multiple cameras, lights, and microphones to capture your class. This is a very economical option for those that have a limited number of classes or have a special educational event to cover.
