It’s quite likely you will have thought about including some kind of video message at your Zoom event, or even putting together a mini video production with your friends. I get asked a lot whether I can play back these for everyone to see. Fortunately I can!
You may have seen or used the screen-sharing features of Zoom before and perhaps you imagine that’s the way it can be done? Well, that is one way, however there is a better way . . .
Boring geeky bit coming up.
TL;DR version is “Yes, I can provide video playback.” Just ask me about it when you enquire!
There are a couple of problems with using screen-share in Zoom to playback video. The first is that Zoom generally assumes you are sharing a computer monitor and so reduces the frame-rate it displays. This can often make the video stutter and not playback smoothly.
By using a dedicated laptop running professional theatre production software we’re able to bring that feed into a video switcher and incorporate it into the main program out for the viewer, no screen-sharing required! Which also means we can apply mix or other professional transition effects. It's even possible to make recorded messages appear live, with a little forethought ;-)
So whether you want to play back a couple of short messages or a fully edited mini-blockbuster we’ve got you covered. And if you need any help putting the content together that’s no problem either.
