Using Zoom as a Valuable Tool in Live Productions: A Videoguys' Compilation

Today's Videoguys Live Webinar is a bit different. Today's, we're focusing on all the ways to improve your Zoom or video conferencing meetings and showing all our resources available to help bring your content one step further!

Zoom can be a valuable tool in a large variety of productions, if utilized properly.  With the production crew snowed in, we've taken a look back at some of our most valuable video resources we've published concerning Zoom.

One major point we discuss during this webinar is the capabilities that are unlocked when using Zoom with a switcher.  This combination allows remote guests to be bought in from Zoom to a multi-camera system- or for the output of a switcher with onboard graphics and multiple camera to be bought in to zoom.  

Videoguys has a great number of multi-camera switching production systems.  Learn more about these systems HERE.

PTZ Cameras:

PTZ cameras are another great way to add an element into your zoom call, by adding additional picture and movement capability for your call.  In this webinar we take a look at some of these options.
