We are delighted to announce the completion of our new presentation studio in our Great Portland Street offices in Central London. The setup comprises of two high definition cameras and one 4k Camera (more can be added as required), professional lighting and large Plasma screen for either presentations or video link ups to be displayed. We also have the option to greenscreen.
It's specifically designed to supplement your existing platform or production company, offering a half way house between someone presenting from home, and going into a full broadcast studio.
It is all brought together through a video mixer which our computer sees as a webcam, so we are able to stream a slick multi camera/multimedia presentation to whichever video platform you are using, without the clunkiness of screen shares etc.
For those technically minded, the equipment comprises of:
In addition to streaming from here, we can also take the kit to a venue and stream from there (perhaps hotel suite with nice views), provided their internet connection is fast enough!
Do get in touch if you would like a virtual tour.
The studio requires minimal crew (max 2, and depending on setup, can operate with just 1) so to minimise social interaction.
The studio is of course COVID secure, and we are registered with NHS Track and Trace. We have a stock of Lateral Flow Tests which we ask people to take the day prior to attending, take their temperature on arrival and to observe our regulations.
Please see our documentation below.
Image above from a conference we hosted from the studio - the presenter was greenscreened and we provided two camera feeds which were superimposed on an impressive set. Read the Case Study here.
We were delighted to host Rita Clifton's virtual book launch of Love Your Imposter. She presented from the studio, and was joined virtually by a panel of contributors.
Naomi Cooper hosted two awards ceremonies from our studio. Set against greenscreen, she encouraged the live audience to Tweet in pics which were superimposed on the background behind her, while she was able to view them on the Plasma in the studio.
Colin Murray has become a veritable regular in our studio since our very first broadcast back in Septemebr '20. As host of 5Live's 10.30pm show, he especially appreciates the proximity to Broadcasting House (he's got it down to 4 mins, including our stairs!).
