The NewBlue team operated remotely for an entire year. In honor of the reopening of the office, we have decided to transform am unused office space. This space is now our own live production studio.
Establishment a internal studio does not take much time or effort. We are thrIfilled our new studio will allow us to shoot live video from where we work. Now our webinars are hosted in this same studio. Read on to learn How we intentionally designed construction of the studio, through the use of space, lighting, sound, cable management and testing.
Before starting to determine our space, we focused on our specific broadcast goals and requirements below. We then created a plan for the potential setup that covered the broadcast background, interior space, hardware, and software. We then focused on maintaining brand consistency and color coordination of the furniture as an extension of the rest of the office.
- Unused room
- Table and furniture
- Flow bridge
- PTZ cameras
- Suitable for shooting at various angles, quality output and incorporates NDI.
- Dedicated to the product focused on real estate.
- Integration of the ATEM mixer
- For ATEM chroma key software for use with Titler Live or VividCast.
To shoot the scenes well, we were lucky since one of the main colors of our brand is green, we already had an office wall painted anise green. This background saved us time by helping with the chroma key. We spent a lot of time testingExplore different ways to chroma key and refine the way we use our tools when combined.
Production lighting is a balance, and when done right, done for a clean chroma key. We needed make sure our background accent wall with his adjacent windows could strIke a attractive balance of light sources when combined. For natural light, the available windows would have too many weather variables throughout the day, so we are done by keeping the window coverings closed to access greater consistency in our images. Our light source focuses on all our artificial Interior lighting including ceiling lights, lighting umbrella and studio lamp mounted on tripod. This combination gave us a soft natural glow.
When that come ring the bell, the incrediblie loud lively Street corner of our office site was an immediate challenge. Also, the designated the studio space would be too tedious and too expensive to soundproof. “For a cost–efficient solution, we opted for a pairing combination of external microphones with the noise canceling function of the Zoom conference platform as our best choice.–Sean Willmon, NewBlue Product specialist
While cables may be the smallest piece of equipment used, they require a lot of attention and strategy to plan how to manage them. We knew our limited space would limit where the production team could go. space without affecting the signal flow of any cable. We time spent fixing of cable sets and cable extensions with individual labels envelope for each cable for easy reference and to avoid any mishap. We then fixed them in place. To help with a clean cable aesthetic, we incorporated a office podie with holes so the cables would not be as exhibitionsed To the camera. Our The HDMI extenders weren’t long enough so we had to order a length increased by 10 feet extensions to accommodate the space. Take the time to plan and to organisee the broadcast makes it easier to turn things around if we ever need to pick up and D–to hang up on the other side the room.
“The more shows you have, the more you can expect to tweak as you go.” – Joe Zamora, NewBlue Product specialist. As a last step, we tested and tunered our sound, lighting, space and overall setup. We tested our screen dimensions for a precise appearance and eye level with our subjects and checking that they are positioned in the center of the screen. We myof ensure that the colors used are introduce yourself as to-Mark. We refined camera shots, myof of course the microphonerophonesrang crisp, reviewed the designed graphic and played them from playlist oworm live video.
