Live Webcast at L.E.K. Consulting

What to Know About Live Webcasts

On March 22 L.E.K. Consulting, a consulting firm with offices in downtown Boston, hired Skillman Video Group to produce a live webcast for them. L.E.K. is an international company with offices all over the world; thus not everyone could make it to the meeting in Boston. A live webcast made the most sense for the meeting’s needs.

L.E.K. Consulting is a recurring client of Skillman Video Group. They have hired us for our video production services on many occasions. They know the quality of our work and we have a good working relationship with them. However, this was the first time they had hired us for our Boston video webcasting services and we were up for the challenge.

How to Improve Live Streamingboston video webcasting services

The day before the live webcast, our team spent the day at the L.E.K. offices turning the conference room into a television studio. We utilized the typical 3-camera set up with one camera to each side of the main speaker and one camera in the back of the room. The one in the back was held on a wide shot of the room and was the “safety” shot. A “safety shot” means that the Director could come to that camera at any time while the other two were locating the current speaker or focusing their cameras. The side cameras were used to focus on the main speaker, but also to move about the room as needed when there were questions from the audience.   Time was also spent on setting up the control room for our director. There was a lot of cable to be run to ensure that our audio/visual components were hooked up and ready to go. A test of the webcasting platform was done to ensure that the live webcast would work. We had to prepare for any problem that could arise.

How do you Watch a Stream on Livestream?

This meeting was very sensitive. All of the managing directors were there to vote on the future direction of the company. The meeting ran from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The director called the shots from the control room. There were many different speakers from the audience during the meeting. Therelive webcast was a lot of switching back and forth between the main speaker and the attendees. Every seat in the conference room had a microphone attached to it. Occasionally the audience member who was speaking would forget to turn their mic on and it caused the audio quality to suffer. Other than those small hiccups, the webcast went smoothly. Once the voting results were announced, the live webcast was complete.

Tips for Live Streaming

Following the conclusion of the meeting, it was time to strike the set. The most important part of breaking down a set is to make it seem as if your crew was never there. This means getting rid of all the gaffing tape we used.  Also, any alterations we made to the conference room needed to be changed back. We had taken apart a couple of mic stands in the back by the “safety shot” camera and had to put them back together. Anything that we brought into the room had to leave with us. You don’t want to leave a mess behind and leave a bad impression on the client.

Live events can be stressful but can also be a lot of fun. No matter what happens during the event you just have to roll with it. Being prepared for anything and everything will go a long way to ensuring the event goes off without a hitch.
