Virtual Graduations

Last year e3 was honored to celebrate the class of 2020. In a little under 30 days e3 produced over 50 virtual graduations thanks to an amazing and dedicated team! We look forward to celebrating the class of 2021 which will most likely be a mix of virtual, drive-in and hybrid events this year. Above is our promo that ran last spring. Our 2021 promo is in the works!

Depth of Field

When talking webcams the one thing that never comes up is depth of field. Depth of field refers to sharpness of focus in front of and behind the subject of focus. Webcams are typically fixed lenses that don’t allow for adjustment of the iris or the focal length.

Things that affect your control over depth of field include the lens on the camera, the distance of the camera to the subject, and the distance from the subject to the background.

To achieve the best image possible we recommend using a DSLR camera that can hook directly to your computer. You might be able to achieve this with your current camera if it supports a USB connection. If you are looking for a cost effective camera the Canon EOS Rebel T100 with 18-55mm Lens Kit is a good choice.

Once connected you’ll want to put the camera in manual mode and adjust the f-stop to the smallest number and then focus. You will find the image quality will be significantly better than a built in webcam and if your background is far enough behind you it will be blurred out without having to use a filter.

If you have any questions or you would like us to provide you with a professional setup for your next meeting feel free to email us at info@e3crg.com or call 516-388-5300

Online Meeting Audio

Overlooked on many online meetings is audio. At times presenters can sound like they are far off in the distance.

A couple of tips for making yourself sound great!

Use the audio settings in your application. These can be found either next to the on screen microphone button (a little up arrow) or a gear icon elsewhere on the screen. In the settings you can adjust your mic level, the amount of noise reduction among other things. If you really want to up your audio game look into a USB or other external microphone.

If you have any questions just shoot us a message at info@e3crg.com

Why e3 for webinars?

One question that comes up a lot is why should I use e3 to produce my webinar?

When planning a webinar the primary focus is content. Who will your presenters be? How do you best to present your brand or product? What day and time works best for your attendees? Who will you invite?

With some many moving pieces why add more? A typical webinar for e3 involves multiple remote or local cameras, video playback, title graphics, lower thirds, records etc… You can leverage e3’s experience to make your event stand out, leaving you focus on content and clients.

Will Virtual Events Survive After COVID?

Back in March of 2020 connection online became more important than ever. People have an innate need to connect with others for both business and social. As we got deeper into the pandemic more and more events moved into the virtual arena. e3 was one of the first to market with virtual graduations. Wanting to ensure the class of 2020 was recognized for their accomplishments e3 created low cost, high quality virtual events executing over 50 events in less than 30 days. These were not automated events each one was individually created by the production team at e3 and live streamed by a technician and moderators.

As we have moved through the pandemic virtual events have been evolving and becoming more sophisticated. We are now seeing live events with limited attendees combined with a virtual component for those who cannot attend. Will that continue to be the “new normal” in the events industry? Virtual events allow for a truly global audience not restricted by the cost or time it takes to travel to an in-person event. So yes, the pandemic made event producers and corporations see the benefits of virtual events and they will continue to be an integral part of events moving forward.
