  • Why a Broadcast Camera is now an Essential Piece of Business Kit

    We’ve all heard about award winning movies being shot with no budget in someone’s bedroom, or internet video sensations being filmed on just a smart phone, but the truth is, to make a video fit for broadcasting, whether for television or the internet, you simply can’t beat recording with a broadcast camera.

    These days, it seems that every business is trying to imbed corporate videos into their website, or producing their own TV channel on You Tube or Vimeo. But the results can be a mixed bag. Whilst there is no denying that a great quality video can do wonders to shift a product, raise brand awareness or create a loyal customer base, this really only works if you produce high quality, well shot videos.

    So how can you ensure your video beats the competition?

    Well the most important thing you need to film a high quality, professional video is high quality, professional recording equipment. And that means investing in a broadcast camera. But remember that the key word here is investment. A broadcast camera will pay dividends in the long run and provide you with the glossy film quality product that your business needs.  You can choose to buy or rent a broadcast camera, but if your long term plan is to film many business videos and set up your own TV channel, then it is worth buying the equipment and making sure someone is trained to use it.

    An entry level broadcast camera really isn’t as expensive as you might think. And the great news is that the technology is now available to everyone, so the opportunity to make high quality, innovative videos is there for businesses to utilise. So what are you waiting for?

    In a previous blog entry we looked at some simple advice to help you film your own video and ensure that it stands out from the crowd. And really the first thing you need to do is investigate which broadcast camera is right for your business, taking into account budget and functionality. There are many different types of broadcast camera on the market, so decide what features are important to your work, such as connectivity options, outputs, weight and whether you will predominantly use your broadcast camera in the studio or out in the field. You’ll also need to consider professional sound equipment and editing software in order to get the most from your camera and make the most professional video possible.

    But a broadcast camera isn’t just essential kit for making corporate videos and promoting your business online, schools, colleges and all kinds of educational establishments also need to use broadcast cameras for teaching and extracurricular activities every day. And of course, in the booming creative media industries, filming and editing is of paramount importance, so you really can’t afford to be without a broadcast camera.
