No matter what type of professional video services you require, it is important that the video production company that you choose has a high quality staff. Lighting technicians, camera crews, coaches for actors or presenters, and audio experts should be available if necessary.
Some video production companies will offer coaching for presenters if they are not used to speaking on camera, and many provide makeup and wardrobe options. High quality lighting is a necessity for a great shot, so make sure to ask about lighting options and view samples of their previous work. Often, studios will have the option of traditional or HD quality broadcast services. They might also offer multi-camera studios, ReadyCam® operations, editing facilities, satellite uplink trucks, and a broadcast production crew.
Some video production studios are equipped to shoot live news inserts for local and international news outlets. These usually come with the option of customizable video backgrounds through the use of a green screen. High quality lighting and sound is also essential for a video production studio, so make sure that the company you use has experienced lighting and audiovisual technicians on staff. Multi-camera studios featuring broadcast-quality equipment are available in some facilities, with additional options occasionally accessible like makeup, wardrobe, and Internet connectivity.
If you are going to be broadcasting remotely live via satellite or fiber optics, you will need a whole slew of additional equipment. A Ku uplink truck will be what broadcasts your event to your medium of choice, whether it is a webcast, cable television, or satellite television. You will also need a generator capable of powering all the lights, cameras, and any audio you will need.
In order to have the best experience with your professional video shoot, you should choose a video production company with state-of-the-art equipment and a highly trained, professional broadcast video production crew.
