Lens to Lenses: Single Camera Shoots vs. Multi-Camera Shoots

By October 15, 2014Blog Post

When deciding whether to use a single camera or multiple cameras to film your next conference or event, it’s important to thoroughly understand each of the options to determine which will best accommodate your needs.

Single Camera

If the event or speech has limited movement on stage or features a single speaker at a podium, using one camera is a great choice. If the speaker offers additional multimedia during his or her speech, such as a slideshow or other graphics, these can easily be inserted into the video during post-production and wouldn’t require additional cameras.


If you have more than one speaker on stage having a conversation, conducting an interview, or giving a presentation, filming with more than one camera will add to the viewers’ experience greatly. This way, the viewers can watch the presentation in various angles: individual shots of each speaker, wide-pan shots of the stage, and also shots of those in the audience. Multi-camera productions require a director and switching equipment to capture these angles.

You can take the production even further and use three or more cameras. This works great for panels, performances or other events that will have a lot of onstage movement.

Although these shoots typically cost two to three times more than single camera shoots, they provide your online audiences with the highest quality viewing experience which can increase viewership and exposure.

The choice of choosing between the options available is ultimately up to you. To learn more about each option and to find out which best fits your needs, click on the video below or contact us at http://services.fora.tv/contact/.
