Skillman Video Group (SVG) recently met with L.E.K. Consulting to lay the groundwork for an upcoming live meeting of their board members.

Scheduled for March 22, this event will take place at L.E.K.’s downtown Boston office.

The goal of the meeting was to meticulously plan and prepare for the live event production.

Preparing for a Seamless Live Event

Turning the L.E.K. boardroom into a fully functional broadcast studio is no small feat.

It involves detailed planning and coordination to ensure that everything runs smoothly. One of the key decisions for this event was to use a webcast format.

With attendees from around the world, expecting everyone to be physically present was impractical. Hence, the technology used must be flawless to accommodate the remote participants effectively.

Leveraging Advanced Webcasting Technology

For this event, SVG chose the Blue Jean platform, powered by Cisco systems. This platform provides ample bandwidth, ensuring a seamless production.

One of the standout features of Blue Jeans is its interactive capabilities, allowing questions to be exchanged during the meeting. This level of interaction is not always available with other webcasting services, making it a perfect choice for L.E.K.’s needs.

Ensuring Technical Excellence

In live event production, there’s no margin for error. SVG’s webcasting engineer must have all the necessary tools and support to guarantee success. The meeting with L.E.K. was crucial for ironing out various technical aspects.

Coordinating SVG’s equipment with L.E.K.’s AV components was essential. Compatibility is key to avoid any technical hiccups during the live broadcast.

Strategic Placement and Lighting

Another important aspect discussed was the optimal placement for the talent. Proper seating arrangements ensure that lighting can be used effectively.

Additionally, understanding the layout of the meeting room helps in planning the setup of cameras, microphones, and other essential equipment.

Managing Crew and Power Sources

Determining the number of crew members the workspace can accommodate is vital for smooth operations.

Identifying all power sources in advance allows for appropriate cable management. Any potential disruptions, such as excessive sunlight, can be mitigated with necessary adjustments like window filters.

Addressing Potential Issues in Advance

Planning is essential to avoid last-minute surprises that could jeopardize the production.

Even though L.E.K. is a recurring client, and some aspects may be familiar, each event comes with unique challenges. Thorough preparation ensures that all potential issues are addressed well in advance.

The Importance of Detailed Planning

SVG understands that meticulous planning is the cornerstone of a successful project.

Being well-prepared allows the team to handle unexpected occurrences on the day of the shoot without affecting the production quality. The meeting with L.E.K. was not just about discussing logistics but also about building confidence that every aspect of the production will be executed flawlessly.

Building on Past Successes

With L.E.K. as a recurring client, SVG has the advantage of familiarity with their requirements and preferences.

However, each event is treated with the same level of attention to detail and commitment to excellence. The experience gained from previous collaborations allows SVG to continuously improve and deliver outstanding results.

Final Thoughts

As SVG prepares for the live meeting at L.E.K. Consulting, the focus remains on delivering a high-quality production that meets and exceeds client expectations.

Through careful planning, strategic coordination, and leveraging advanced technology, SVG is set to transform L.E.K.’s boardroom into an impressive broadcast studio, ready to engage a global audience.
