Why Multiple Cameras?

Multiple camera angles are far more engaging than a simple talking head shot. Wide, Close-up and middle from different angles.

  • Lecture centers with multiple speakers, boards and/or display items
  • Board of Ed Meetings
  • Town Halls / Community Outreach
  • Concerts, Plays and other performances
  • Sports! Sports! Sports!
