Video Recording Tips

Everyone is fond of making videos on their camcorder. But if you intend to get your video transcribed later, you need to take care of the audio. George Lucas once said, "Sound is fifty percent of the movie going experience." When it comes to transcribing your video, sound has one hundred percent significance.

Following the few simple tips given below will help you make a video more suitable for transcriptions.

Camera Positioning:

If you are recording a business meeting or group discussion for transcription or any such situation where the camera will be in a stationary position, take care to position the camera from an angle from which all the participants are visible. Take care to set up the camera, so that the transcriptionists will be able to identify the speakers easily and provide accurate transcripts.


Never use your camcorders' inbuilt microphone for recording a video for transcription. Directional microphones are preferred for interior locations as it picks up the voice of the speaker or the direction where it is pointed. A directional microphone picks up sound from its front end and has a high signal-to-noise ratio. Also, note that excessively directional microphones will pick up too much echo in tight interior locations, so the right compromise must be struck in such situations.

Make a Digital Audio:

Digital Video recordings are becoming more affordable and easier and are much preferred to analog recordings mainly because of the better quality. It is also advisable to make a digital audio recording along with your video ( digital or analog ). This will make the job of the transcriptionist easy and thereby reduce the cost of your transcriptions.
