One-camera recording

A one-camera session is the simplest. It’s best for a video meant for a specific audience, such as students in a course. As a rule, we set a microphone in front of the lecturer. The microphone on the camera captures some sounds, but it can be difficult to hear things like questions from the audience. When the recording is finished, we give you the video file as a link that’s ready publish in places like course-specific sites on Mondo.

An alternative to a one-camera recording is to do a studio session, where the lecturer speaks directly into the camera rather than having an audience present.

Two-camera recording

A two-camera recording is best for a lecture (or something similar) that will be webcast and, afterwards, will appear on We use two cameras and a video mixer, and we can also show pictures directly from the lecturer’s computer. The shoot is done by two people, a photographer and a video producer. Normally, the 2 cameras (one whole-shot, one tracking) are placed in the back of the location. The sound is recorded directly from the speaker system. Recording questions from the audience requires a hand-held microphone.

Three-camera recording

With three cameras, the video producer has more leeway to vary the production. A camera at the front can catch audience reactions and get another perspective. It makes the event more interesting to watch and gives the viewer a sense of 'being there'. The three-camera production works very well on the web.

If you plan on sending your video to Kunskapskanalen (UR Samtiden), it needs to be a three-camera recording. Of course editors there will decide whether they think that the event and content is a good match for broadcasting.
