Ask any professional video producer what is the hardest thing to get right in their productions, and they will say it is achieving quality audio. It would seem that the audio would be secondary to the video images. However, great audio is essential to any video production or videoconference, especially if transcription, translation, and Closed Captions are a must. This workshop will explore successful, tried-and-true audio tips and tricks for the novice and professional video producer and all levels of online teachers. Audio recording, editing, and compression techniques found highly effective by top-level producers will be demonstrated and discussed. Particular attention will be given to live, recorded, and distributed audio for online classes using videoconferencing platforms, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, etc. Participants will have the opportunity to log on to a Post-Conference website that will allow them to have further conversations and discussions about this specific topic.
