What you need

Videos are a popular medium, even in the business sector. Companies, for example, design posts for social media channels that contain small video sequences. Or they create a YouTube channel where they present their products. Due to the pandemic and digitalization, Videos gained popularity — whether in the form of webinars, online training courses, or corporate communication videos.

For video recording, many companies like to rely on experts who provide expensive equipment for recording, sound, and lighting. An expert may be useful at one point or another, but for daily work with videos, no expensive technology is required. Don't you think so? Here we'll explain why and tell you how!

Video recordings without StoryBox

Set-up

If you want to record a video for your company, you must first decide what you want to see in the video. One person, one team, the premises? Entrepreneurs often find this difficult and do not consider what should or should not be seen in the set-up. The video is then not convincing due to its professionalism because what is shown or the background is not consistent or the corporate identity is not recognizable.

Recording

With conventional video recordings, it is up to each videographer to capture the scene. Professional recording often requires appropriate external light sources, microphones, or even several cameras. For this reason, experts and their equipment are often in demand here.

Light

As a layman, it's not the easiest thing to set the ideal light for a professional corporate video. In addition, company rooms do not always have the right lighting conditions for videos. If the video is not properly illuminated, people are not easy to see or what is being recorded does not look appealing. Here too, the eye of a camera expert and other equipment is therefore often required.

Sound & music

As with recording and lighting, you need additional technology to get the right sound in the video. Be it in the form of a room microphone or on the speaker's collar. If music is then required when editing the video, appropriate audio tracks must be searched for, downloaded, edited, and inserted into the video. Not only does it sound like a lot of work, but it is!

Cut & render

Recording a video is no easy task, but it usually fails in the end due to professional editing. This usually requires an additional program that is not always intuitive to use.

Save, upload & share

Your video is ready and you want to save it, you're just wondering where and then make it available to everyone? Video files often have a large format, which makes saving and sending difficult. What is also the situation with approval and the issue of data protection? This requires further steps in the video shooting process.

Collaborative work

Rarely is just one person responsible for a corporate video. In most cases, other teams and supervisors are also involved. Traditional systems often make collaborative work difficult because no approval steps are planned. The video has to be sent or uploaded to SharePoint in a cumbersome way, which slows down the work.
