Webcasting Studio

Webcasting Studio


Initial situation

Videos are playing an increasingly important role in the areas of training, documentation and knowledge transfer. Webcasts have also established themselves in companies as a useful supplement to knowledge transfer. The emotional combination of moving image and sound communicates the message personally and authentically.

It is planned to broadcast lectures and information for the employees live at regular intervals as a video with a presentation. The recording of the webcast should be available for later playback as ondemand video. The production should be simple and independent and meet the high quality requirements. A webcasting studio will be set up in the room where the presentations will take place.


Solution

  • Webcast PoC (Proof of Concept): With a first webcast the feasibility has been proved and the stakeholders have been convinced.
  • Equipment proposal: Based on the premises, the existing infrastructure and the requirements to the webcast, a proposal for the required equipment was developed.
  • Setup Webcasting Studio: Camera and light were set up and put into operation and the configuration for the picture composition (Picture in Picture) made.

Challenges

  • Concept: Definition of the solution based on customer requirements; Integration of the existing audio system, presentation as video signal, image composition Picture in Picture (PiP).
  • Simplicity: The production of webcasts should be simple and of high quality. Setup of live stream and recording with short preparation time.
  • Scalability: Use of the simplex platform through additional branches in other locations with existing equipment.

The image of the camera shows the person who presents.

Talk to your audience

The webcasting camera for live broadcasting can be fixed or flexibly set up on a tripod. No cameraman is needed with the correct angle and camera setting. If the presenting person is to be seen, the message is conveyed personally and authentically to the viewer.

Image composition Picture-in-Picture

The customer wants to show the video image and his laptop presentation in a combined picture-in-picture composition without the need to mix the input signals manually. The simplex Pro webcasting software supports various hardware and software encoders that can process multiple input signals (cameras, laptops, external subscribers) into a single video signal.
