Going to Vegas – What it Takes to Podcast / Videocast the Event
When I went to Las Vegas in January, I thought I would be going back to cover events. I didn’t think it would be so soon. But I don’t mind – a little hop over to the city that never sleeps for a few days of fun in the sun.
Except I will have a reason for going to the big city. I will be working with Andy McCaskey and Kara Karsten again for the HP Tech Forum Expo 2009. We will be covering the floor – CES style while also setting up one – on – one interviews with various vendors.
I will also be doing wrap up videos all week for the Geekazine channel and TVazine. So I thought I would start early by showing you what it takes to get ready for an event like this.
Andy will be getting the serious CES gear from Todd Cochrane, so I will have to make sure I have the little stuff covered. We will be doing the Backchannel content like we did at CES, so I will be bringing the AIPTEK camera. I will also be Podcasting my regular show on Tuesday, which means I’ll have to take the Blue USB mic with me and other various accoutremon.
In this weeks video, I get to do two things:
- Show off the new studio space for future video
- Show you all the items I am planning to take with me to cover an event like this.
It should be a great time. I will be on a plane and in Vegas by Sunday night. So that means I have a lot of work to do before then.
Oh, wait. I have a lot of work to do… Well, here is the video.
