May 11, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Live Events

There are certain things you should leave to the pros and recording your events is definitely one of them. If you want to make sure everything is captured, clear and heard without any problems hiring a professional audio engineer is a must. After all, you have plenty of other things to take care of during the day of the event.

Why Record Your Event?

Whether you want to use the content in your next podcast, in a future promo video or simply to look back on as a fond memory, it’s always a smart choice to record your event.

Experience Is Key

Why leave something so important in the hands of an amateur? Recording your live events is something that shouldn’t be overlooked and if key pieces are left out, you’re going to regret it. That’s why you should choose somebody with years of experience and technical training, like the pros at CitiView.

Don’t be like the thousands of people who wish they had a copy of their event to look at after the big day. When planning your next event we highly recommend considering recording it so you can go over it to find out what went well and what didn’t, and that’s just one of the benefits. Find out a few more reasons why you should record your next event below:iStock_000039859106_Large

No matter how big or small your event is going to be, you can never go wrong by having it recorded. Not only will you able to pinpoint positives and negatives to better prepare for future presentations, you can use the content for podcasts, video promotions and even ads on social media!

First, you need to decide what the video will be used for. Is it going to be turned into a tutorial for training purposes within your company? Is it going to be released to the public? This is a vital step because it will also help you determine the type of lighting, audio and sound equipment that you will need for the event.

According to Events Uncovered, “One of the most difficult aspects of recording an event is the audio. Any event that is heavy on talking will need to have good audio to make it worthwhile.” For this reason, we strongly encourage the use of professional audio engineers and expert video recorders. That’s where we come in!

For High Resolution Audio, Does The Format Really Matter?

MP3, FLAC, WAV. does it really make a difference? When it comes to listening to music, high-resolution audio is the way to go. But what’s more important, the quality of the gear used to record or the format?

Before we get into the details, it’s vital to point out that sound quality is determined by the quality of the gear used to record and the skill and expertise of the audio engineers. If you have bad equipment and the audio engineer doesn’t have much experience, chances are the audio won’t sound very good.

You can think of it all in terms of a high-definition television. Look at the difference between a sporting event or a movie broadcasted in HD and then compare it to a black and white film from the 60s. Even if you transferred the old movie to a 1080 Blu-ray, it wouldn’t make the film any clearer and the same holds true for audio.

When it comes down to it, high-resolution audio files are more expensive than standard definition files, so is it worth it? There are a few things to consider before making a decision:

  • Do you have high quality speakers or headphones?
  • Is the recording good enough to benefit from high resolution mastering?
  • Will the audience or listeners be able to tell the difference?

Recording a live event in order to help preserve the memory or use it later in a podcast or promo video is excellent advice. You never know when you might be able to use something later so you want to prepare now. I would imagine that hiring a professional will also be able to help you make sure to get all of the event and will allow you to focus your attention on the event.
