Are You So Focused on Video That You’re Neglecting Audio?
2:45 p.m. - 3:05 p.m.
Even when your video is perfect, nothing sours a streaming experience more quickly than poor audio. Whether you are running the whole show yourself or receiving an audio feed from the “sound guy,” there are several areas you need to pay attention to when combining audio into your live video stream. Learn about audio signals and how to speak with sound engineers using their language. Demystify elements of audio such as mic/line levels, balanced vs. unbalanced, dBu/dBV/dbFS units, crest factor, headroom, analog vs. digital clipping, and input attenuation/gain/trim so you can produce videos that sound as good as they look.
