Video Recording

When choosing a video recording solution several questions should be asked:

  • Who is my target audience and what will they be using to watch my video?
  • Do I need to store a master uncompressed video file for future editing or distribution?
  • How much time can I invest into publishing video content?
  • Do I have technical staff/volunteers that will be able to run post-production video software and equipment?
  1. If you have the proper personnel in place, computer based hard-drive recording is a great solution that offers infinite possibilities and great expandability down the road.
  2.  If you have limited qualified personnel, solid state recording or DVD recording are more appropriate options.
