What would you do if someone dropped a budget in your lap to update your multimedia hardware and software? Some companies are doing exactly that, because doing projects in-house is much cheaper than outsourcing locally. So you’ve got a challenge—you’ve got to set up a studio.

In this session, participants will learn how to outfit a multimedia studio: you’ll learn what to buy and what to build, when to buy and when to wait, and what hardware you should avoid and why. You’ll discover the IT ripples that a multimedia studio for Internet broadcasting causes in a company, the big-ticket items that are actually worth the money, and the little-ticket items you can’t live without. This is a discussion-oriented session, so bring your questions and your answers and share what you know with the other participants.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to make choices on multimedia equipment and software
  • The safety issues to be aware of
  • How to avoid common mistakes
  • The unavoidable process and procedure issues
  • About templates, processes, and project management tips

Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
