LS408 Using Virtual Studios for Video Creation in eLearning

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 16



Many training videos are not compelling; too many are just shot against a beige cinderblock wall. Video must be visually compelling to hold the viewer’s attention, but most video producers don’t know what tools and techniques are available, or think that they are too expensive.

In this session, you will see examples of training programs created with current video technologies that address all these issues and more. You will learn from case studies in which several training issues were solved by SMEs presented using these technologies. You will learn what it takes to put together a system that will create a professional, studio-quality training video at a fraction of the cost, using virtual studio sets and green-screen technology. You will also learn how and when to use live and/or recorded video, how to stream video live, and how to optimize recorded and real-time video for the web across any platform.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About virtual video studios
  • How to create virtual video training programs
  • How to stream live video to any device
  • How to optimize video for the web
  • How to get the best audio in a video recording
  • Tools and best practices for video production

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
Virtual studio sets, Newtek TriCaster 460, integrating HD video, and Skype video inputs.
