Tips for recording

  • Use as quite an area as possible.
  • Avoid areas that have echo.
  • Strong Wi-Fi connection.
  • Good headset with a microphone close to mouth BUT away from a direct line of mouth to reduce “pops”. Avoid using the default built-in microphone on the computer.
  • Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bitrate before recording the entire presentation.
