While just a few years ago the thought of having a broadcast facility within a corporate space would seem far-fetched for all but the biggest organisations, advances in technology have made this much more viable with a wide range of easy to use and more budget-friendly equipment now available.
While the visual elements of a broadcast facility are undoubtedly important, investing in the right lighting and audio is crucial. Choosing the right mixer will be key in ensuring the audience are able to enjoy a clear audio experience. While this can feel like a daunting task, mixers are available in all kinds of shapes and sizes so it’s easy to find a less complex, more intuitive and well-priced desk than it may seem at first.
Similarly with microphones, options are now vast. USB mics simply need to be plugged into the USB port of your laptop and, if chosen wisely, can provide perfectly good quality audio. These can be particularly useful if you’re likely to be recording audio on the go to later be used in a broadcast. Other options include dynamic mics, designed to withstand high sound pressure levels and dynamic ranges of sounds, large-diaphragm condensers and lavalier mics.
Videowalls and displays are also popular in studios, enabling the clear sharing of graphics and images to keep audiences entertained. Remember broadcast facilities are designed to engage and inform employees, customers and numerous other stakeholders so it’s worth investing in a facility that can help you to deliver a wide variety of quality content.
