The Show

We named this setup “The Show” because it’s the most common setting for audio and video podcasts.

Participants sit in comfy utility chairs at a table that allows for computer / tablet use, products, papers or props.

The Show is ideal for:

  • Audio podcasts
  • Co-hosted video sessions
  • Any session in which space for computers, papers or products is needed
Microphone Setup

For this setup, dynamic microphones are recommended. They are secured by shock mounts to keep the tabletop free. However, if you are presenting products or anything that requires an unobscured view to the host or guest, lavalier mics can be used instead.

Camera Setups

For all video sessions, the main camera focuses on the entire stage. In the Video Max session, additional camera views focus on each person, allowing for a dynamic session that follows the action and conversation. Video Max also enables the main camera to be in motion, adding more movement to your show.

Background

Any of the four background options (curtain, curtain with monitor, wall with monitor, green screen) can be used with this setup. However, the green screen background is only available with the Video Plus or Video Classic creator packages.

Video Display

For all video sessions, the monitor behind the participants (if selected in background options) can display the show’s logo. For Video Max and Video Plus sessions, it can optionally show presentations, images, virtual participants or any video content that is part of your session. A smaller monitor, mounted in front of the participants, shows the same content so participants don’t have to turn around.

Audio Playback

If your session includes any audio content, such as clips, voices from virtual guests or sound effects, these sounds will be heard through an in-ear monitoring system. (Virtual participants will not be able to hear this audio.) A wireless bodypack is supplied for each participant. You can bring your own standard headphones to plug into the bodypack, or we can furnish a hidden single-ear headset.
