Sundra's best practice guide for videographers
If you are a videographer tasked with recording an event for Sundra then here are a few things to keep in mind to get the best results.
Sundra processes a recording from a single camera.
We recommend using the recording from the camera closest to the speaker.
Position the camera so that it maintains the speaker in the centre of the screen, preferably capturing only the top half of them. This allows easy cropping to 9:16 aspect ratio if needed for social media or mobile platforms.
If the speaker moves on stage, make efforts to follow their movements and keep them centered. Use smooth camera movements to avoid abrupt transitions and maintain a professional look.
Aim for a video quality of 1080p at 25 frames per second (1080p25). This resolution and frame rate provide a good balance between video quality and file size.
Encode the video in H.264 compression, and save it in any of the more common file formats such as .mp4 or .mov.
Avoid using raw video formats like .RAW and .BRAW, as they result in large file sizes and require extensive post-processing, which can be time-consuming for our processing and system.
Audio quality is paramount for event recordings. Good audio ensures that the content remains clear and understandable.
Record the main audio directly within the same file as the video recording to maintain synchronisation and simplify post-production.
Uploading to Sundra
Before uploading make sure you have uploaded all of your assets such as intros, outros and logos.
Before uploading create the template for the event where you define how you want all your outcomes to look.
For best results we recommend cutting the event down to each speaker and then uploading each speaker's talk individually into the system.
