Getting a good tight follow may take some time and practice before you feel experienced enough to capture every movement, but having good positioning will help your shot look more professional no matter what you are doing. A clean, tight follow will always elevate the level of production you are hoping to achieve.
We realize that sometimes you just want to make a simple cable swap or another easy change on your own. At Lambda our main mission has always been to empower people to know their equipment and be able to get the most out of it. This is why the team at Lambda has been working hard to create resources for you to use this last year, including instructional graphics for camera operators.
We want to continue to provide practical tips for you to use so your company and staff can continue to grow. So, be sure to send us any questions or topics you’d like to see addressed here or on social media. Also, be sure to keep reading future issues as we have a lot of DIY tips coming up and if you haven’t heard about our jobsite guide, we’d love to get one into your hands! More to come!
A while back we talked about the “Lambda process” for turning your dreams of new audio, video, or lighting system into a reality. A big part of that process is all about the gear testing that happens in our shop before the equipment ever gets to your location. After the gear has been ordered and arrives, we set up all the equipment and each component in our shop just as it will be for the install. This ensures that when we arrive for the install, there aren’t any surprises and there won’t be “that one missing part.” Along with that, we have an assurance that each piece of the gear we install will work for you leaving no questions of whether your new parts are faulty. This detailed process not only assures that each piece is built properly, but that they all work together flawlessly.
In the video world over the past 20 years there have been many, many different types of cables and connections used to pass signal from one medium to another. From composite video to VGA and DVI, and now at SDI and HDMI. But while we have heard of these cables, what are they? And what do they do? Today we’re going to talk about HDMI and SDI.
If you follow us on Instagram, you’ve probably seen our Support videos. Not only do we want you to know the quickest way to reach Lambda if you need some help, but we want to make sure you have a place to turn when something goes wrong! We love designing and building AV systems, but we also love empowering YOU to use your system and keep it going for many years to come!
As the end of the year approaches, there are a few ways you can make sure your AV system is ready to go for the holiday season. Due to the high backorder rate, chances are you won’t get any new equipment for the season, but there are a few other approaches you can take to improve the equipment you already have.
With more holidays just around the corner and the continued uncertainties of what will happen next with Covid, the team at Lambda wants to make sure you we can give you the best tools and tips for making this season special! This year certainly wasn’t what we all expected and will look different as we plan ahead. Be sure to read last week’s article with a few ways you can make your system better this season without ordering a whole new system!
As we continue to look at ways to improve video stream, audio, and lighting for the holidays, we thought it would be a good week to check out these five tips to prepare your system for holiday productions!
We were very excited when we walked into a job and saw the Lambda Audio Guides printed off and sitting on the desk. If you haven't already checked out the great resources on our website, now's the time! These guides will change the way you train your volunteers and are a solid resource for reminding yourself of the essentials too! Check out lambdaav.io/resources for Audio AND Video guides!!!
The Summit Church upgrade covered Audio, Video, Lighting and general stage design. It was a big project for Lambda, so after the initial design and approval to move forward by the church, Lambda decided to approach the install in stages. We were able to add the equipment in a logical order over the course of two months. We did this for several reasons.
It took a lot of planning and time to build and integrate the updates to Summit, but everyone involved couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
Did you know you can schedule a training day with Lambda too?
The cost is reasonable because we believe your team is your greatest asset! You can ask us for more specific and advanced training depending on your team's needs. We have experts across our Lambda in Audio, Video, and Lighting who are passionate about what they do and love to share every tip and trick they have. We make these training sessions unique to you and can build on skills that you want your team to have.
If there’s anything you’re looking to learn or maybe even help training new volunteers, contact us any time. We’d love to discuss different Training options for your team!
