The factors that separate the success or failure of a live production are related to quality. A bad quality will guarantee that you have a remembered event, but not because of what you would really like, but on the contrary.

It is always necessary to take into consideration the teams, human and technical, that the company organizing the event has.

Some Tips for Success in Live Audiovisual Production


Of course, the budget available for the realization of an audiovisual event, the materials, the technology used and the technical means are fundamental when preparing an event.

All this is important, but teamwork is fundamental, working with qualified people, audiovisual professionals and with the necessary attitude for a job well done is the initial pillar for the event to be a resounding success.

Control of the entire visual space of the event

Visual production, sound and lighting are elements that will be analyzed at the beginning of the planning of audiovisual projects, so it is important to know first hand the place chosen to perform the show or event and be able to adapt our entire audiovisual strategy to it.

In this way, our sound technicians will study the best audio system that adapts to the location and adjusts to the needs of the venue, in order to avoid that the sound does not propagate well or, on the contrary, that its forcefulness is such that it is annoying.

The best audio system is the one that adjusts to the needs, a system that is neither short nor surpassed.

The limits of the enclosure

The realism when analyzing the characteristics of the enclosure can avoid unexpected surprises. Some factors, such as the power supply, enclosure dimensions, irregularities in the ceiling or floor and other factors, will be the determining factors for the choice of one type of audiovisual equipment or another.

The specialists must ensure that the sound pressure is correct, the audiovisual production will be responsible for finding the best angles of visibility, the production assistants will ensure that the control of realization is in proper operation and all this must be coordinated correctly through workflows according to the event to be organized.

Which audience will attend the event?

This aspect must also be evaluated exhaustively in order to choose the dimensions of the audiovisual equipment:

Number and size of projection or LED screens
Number of speakers
Number of cameras in case of live performance
Lighting elements
Scenario Dimensions
The audiovisual language you want to show in the event must be perfect in terms of the audience, otherwise we will get the event becomes boring and therefore a failure.

Revision of material and connections.

We must bear in mind that technology is not 100% infallible. It is very important to check the equipment and always check before and after each event that it is working properly.

Replacement material.

It is always better to prevent than to cure, so in every event that takes place, it is very important to have replacement equipment ready. In the case of projectors, hot backup is usually used, which is no more than doubling the number of projectors and keeping them turned on, but with the shutter activated (it is a system of shovels that cut image).

There is also the cold backup that tries to double the number of projectors but these are stopped and if you have to use them must be turned on with what this entails: the projectors need time to heat the lamps and thus generate image.

In any case, it is advisable to study all the possible risk factors that can fail to avoid that they can be a problem and your event is overshadowed by a malfunction.
