    Making the Most of Graphics in Your Live Productions with Patrick Twomey

    Making the Most of Graphics in Your Live Productions with Patrick Twomey

    On this episode of Living Live with Ross Video, host Tyler Kern was joined by Ross Director of Product Management Patrick Twomey (embed contributor page) to discuss an often-overlooked, yet extremely important piece of live production – graphics.

    Graphics, Twomey said, are an integral part of providing a complete live production experience – while video and audio capabilities are critical and receive plenty of attention, graphics are a great way to provide information, clarity and more.

    “One thing that’s always on the screen is the graphic,” Twomey said. “You have to make sure you know what you want to have shown and how you want it to appear.”

    The key to successful graphic creation, Twomey said, is a simple one – preparation.

    “The big part of what you’re trying to do is make sure that you can cleanly present information to the viewer,” he said. “If you know what type of content you want to present and how you want to present it, that’s goes a long way. If you’re not prepared, you’re going to be spitballing a lot of ideas.”

    Kern and Twomey also discussed some best practices for graphics creation, including sticking to the region of interest to keep graphic file sizes down, making a full-screen reference to make it simpler for designers to create consistent pieces, and working within native rendering tools like Ross Video’s XPression tools.

    Controlling the Chaos of Live Production with Amanda Holtstrom and James Peltzer

    Controlling the Chaos of Live Production with Amanda Holtstrom and James Peltzer

    On this episode of Living Live with Ross Video, host Tyler Kern was joined by Ross Product Manager, Dashboard Amanda Holtstrom and Technical Product Manager, Dashboard James Peltzer.
    Dashboard is Ross’s answer to the chaos of live production – with this free and open platform, users can build unique, tailored CustomPanels that help streamline their operation and provide a simple-to-use way to engage in beneficial facility control and monitoring.
    “I think anyone that has to do live productions knows that, in the middle of an event or a moment, it’s important to limit the number of options you have available to you to make sure you don’t do the wrong thing,” Peltzer said. “You want to be able to choose from a reduced set of features and options that allow you to make sure what you’re doing is correct and reproducible.”
    This need is only amplified, Holtstrom said, by the complexity of many live production environments.
    Some of the key features of a solution like Dashboard are the ability to select the features that are most meaningful and critical to a producer during a production, allowing for the creation of presets that further streamline future workflows, scripting features, easy-to-understand visual logic, and more.
