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.
