Live Streaming Video Series


Live Streaming Video Series

The “Engineering Grand Challenges” is a live streaming video series that we brought to life in collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU) and the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Comprising 13 live-streamed events hosted on ASU’s campus, each event featured a unique guest speaker, with returning hosts keeping the series cohesive. Speakers identified specific engineering challenges, proposed potential solutions, and after their presentation, engaged with the audience by answering questions from those tuning in remotely. The production of the series came to an end in early March 2020.

What was our role in this?
Video Production
Before the launch of the series, our team masterminded the video introduction displayed on our portfolio page. For each event, all we needed to do was customize it with the name of the respective event’s speaker.

Live Stream Handling
Each event required the setup of three cameras. To capture the presentations, we connected the speaker’s computer directly to our switcher station. Our setup allowed us to seamlessly alternate between camera views and presentation slides. Audio input was facilitated from the venue’s sound board, and we subsequently provided our program feed to an ASU official responsible for the internet connectivity.

The Live Streaming Video Series ran intermittently from 2019 to 2020. Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic preempted our series. We are keenly looking forward to restarting the series once normalcy returns.

Indeed, our endeavors to share enlightening and engaging content with our audience have faced unpredictable hurdles. Pandemics and other such unprecedented circumstances, however, have only driven us to harness even more powerful and effective techniques for live streaming series production.

Adopting Advanced Technologies

In recent times, we’ve observed a surge in the use of innovative technologies and platforms for live streaming, pushing the boundaries of what a virtual space can truly offer. Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and 3D technologieshave rocketed popular live streams to new heights, capturing audiences in a completely immersive experience.

Connecting with The Audience

More than just providing an immersive viewing experience, our aim extends to fostering genuine connections with our audiences. We’ve found that live chat features, Q&A sessions, and direct engagements through comments can transform the perceptions and experiences of viewers, adding a personal touch to every live stream.

Pre-Production Planning

A successful live streaming series invariably requires meticulous pre-production planning. From shaping your content to closely reflect audience preferences, to perfecting the technical details, this stage is all about proactive preparation. We consider every minute aspect from camera angles to lighting conditions, ensuring that when we hit that ‘live’ button, it’s showtime to remember.

Multicamera Setups

While a single camera can create a comfortable intimacy, we’ve found that using multicamera setups can considerably enhance the production value. This not only offers varied perspectives, but it also makes your stream visually stimulating and keeps your viewers interested and engaged for longer durations. Remember, it’s all about enriching your audience’s viewing experience!

Post-Production Editing

After the live stream, there’s always ample room for enhancements. Post-production editing gives you the opportunity to refine and fine-tune your content. This might involve cutting fluff, fixing audio, or even adding graphics. It’s this attention to detail that elevates your live video streaming series to the next level.

Even with the temporary break in our series due to unexpected situations, our resolve remains unbroken. We’re confident in the resilience and adaptability that live streaming series production offers. So, stay tuned for the new, improved, and resilient production of our series in the future!

The recent wave of innovative live streaming platforms, replete with cutting-edge functionality and features, are making end-to-end production easier than ever. Not only do these platforms offer the capability to broadcast high-quality video in real time, but they also come equipped with integrated dashboards for managing and controlling every aspect of your production. But that’s not all.

Evolving Live Video Streaming Series Technology

Joining the technological revolution in live production is the advent of highly sophisticated switching equipment. These hardware elements serve as the backbone of your production setup; they enable seamless swapping between multiple video inputs, while recording or streaming a session. The utility of such devices extends beyond just switching, as they simultaneously provide real-time video effects, transitions, and graphics. This fosters an environment where assembling a polished, professional live stream becomes altogether less challenging. Further, this advanced technology underpins your ability to connect with your viewers in a more intimate, engaging manner.

However, even the best live streaming platform and switching equipment wouldn’t be of much use without careful planning. Pre-production planning is fundamental to ensure that everyone involved in the production understands their role and is prepared to perform when the camera goes live. It’s during this phase that the intricate details of your broadcast are ironed out, from the content of your stream to your equipment, location, personnel, and more. Mastery over these processes, courtesy of these innovative technologies, will deliver a polished and professional live broadcast that captivates your audience at every turn.

When discussing live series production, it’s impossible to overlook the role of multicamera setups. These configurations endow your locale with multiple perspectives, enhancing the immersive experience for your viewers. Far from being a mere aesthetic choice, multicamera setups have a practical benefit too, offering redundancy in case one camera fails. Again, technology shines through, facilitating the seamless integration of multiple cameras into your live stream with ease.

Last, but certainly not least, is post production—a crucial step in any video series production. Thanks to the development of advanced video editing software and tools, you can refine your live broadcast even further in post production. This could involve trimming unnecessary footage, correcting color, tweaking audio, adding special effects, or even incorporating audience interaction elements. In a nutshell, the post-production phase marks the final polish, ensuring your live broadcast meets and even exceeds viewer expectations.

Remember, the goal is not just to produce content; it’s about creating dynamic, engaging content that will resonate with your audience. These strategies will equip you to do just that.
