We recently had a customer call us and ask for a quote of what the cost would be to video record her event. During the conversation, our technician asked her who would be providing the audio support for the event – She replied that the in-house team would be responsible for event audio. This is often the case when someone decides to “shop around” for each individual part of their audio and visual needs.
Sometimes shopping around for the individual aspects of your event production has its benefits, however are each of these companies getting together before your event to make sure that all of your needs are covered?? In this case the predicted benefits did not outweigh the problems with the outcome. We had explained to the customer beforehand that by only producing the video, we would have no control over the quality of the audio for her recording. Sure enough, during the presentation there were constant interruptions with the audio and the microphones had to be switched out multiple times which greatly affected the quality of the video. Now not only can the video not be played continuously, the editing costs could potentially be greater as well as it will take some creativity and additional effort to cut out low quality portions.
This example can be applied to almost any type of event. If your lighting guy is not in communication with the person providing the projection prior to your event then the quality of the projection could be seriously affected. If your staging person hasn’t spoken to your audio portion the stage may be too far to connect to an appropriate power source.
