Record Quality

Event recordings including Live Performances will be recorded in HD master quality which is good in one sense but at the same time, it will most likely take a 24-48 hour turn-around time for the video to offload and process before it becomes ready to be delivered to you. 
USB drives, external hard drives and digital uploads are a few of the way your recorded event can be stored.

We use a professional HDD HD record Deck capable of recording 10Mbps – 120Mbps
As a precautionary measure, a backup recording is made internally inside our production switcher at 16mbps.

Because of the high bitrates involved with master quality recordings, there may not be an opportunity to just hand off a drive at the end of the show. Perhaps a low proxy version can be recorded and delivered much quicker for screening purposes while the master takes its time to render and transfer to its final destination (USB, Hard drive, Dropbox etc)

Dropbox and Google Drive, Docs and other digital cloud-based services are always an option though it may take slightly longer to upload a high bitrate file. It will all depend on the size of the file and how long the recorded event was. It could take hours, in some cases days to complete. We do have lower resolutions if you desire.

We can consult with you to go over your intentions for your finished video and your preference for the level of recording quality.
We don’t want to overdo it or overkill the process. We do have the capability to record at lower, more user and web-friendly bit rates. 

The following is a guide of HD media/data usage.

90 min show
At 10mbps = 9.98GB
Transfer time to USB Flash Drive 3-4 hours
Dropbox digital upload time 4-6 hours
(can process overnight if need be)

At 25mbps = 18.95GB
Transfer time to USB Flash Drive – 3-5 hours
Dropbox digital upload time 7-10 hours
(can process overnight if need be)

At 35mbps = 28.95GB
Transfer time to USB Flash Drive – 6-8 hours
Dropbox digital upload time 8-12 hours
(can process overnight if need be)

At 50mbps = 39.99GB
Transfer time to USB Flash Drive – 8-12 hours
Dropbox digital upload time 12-18 hours
(can process in about a day)

As we’ve noted above, the higher the Bit Rate the better the (uncompressed) quality.

We recommend the 10Mbps if you just need a quick turn around to upload to social media.
It is decent for that platform and clean video to the naked eye.
