Challenge & Solution
To overcome this issue, and to offer this client the ability to have consistent branded or graphical backgrounds, we included green screens in the remote kits. Using a green screen allows content to be fully branded, removes messy and distracting backgrounds, and offers more flexibility in post-production.
The key to the successful use of a green screen is light and quality. By including ring lights in the kits, and guiding the speakers to ensure no natural light enters the room, we were able to ensure the light was as consistent as it could be.
Another challenge is low-quality streaming. To overcome this we deploy a clever tool and platform. This platform allows us to host the interview in a setting that is familiar with the speakers as it resembles Zoom and Teams and generally has many of the same controls. However, under the bonnet, it’s recording locally to their computer and simultaneously uploading to our server. Allowing us to receive a video file free of streaming quality degradation.
