Business Video Tips: Recording a Live Presentation with PowerPoint

Bottom line, you’ll likely want to include the PPT either with a live recording or afterwards via video editing. Editing Options Many video production companies handle this by manually editing in the individual PPT slides. This requires exporting the slides as images in PPT. A simple way to do this is during the presentation have your video production company use a second camera pointed at the screen and also capturing sound so that the video can be used as a guide during editing. Presenter and Powerpoint (PPT) Custom Template Live Recording and Streaming This is where both the speaker and the PPT are fed to a “video mixer” such as the Tricasters we have (image below) and combined as it occurs live. You’ll need to cover this with your video production company because it may require additional time, equipment and crew.

Presenter Marketing Video Focus Groups When there are many people sitting around a table, meeting room, a panel, or in the audience you’ll want to be certain that the person speaking is recorded clearly. An “automatic audio mixer”, as the name implies automatically opens the mic channel for the person speaking and lowers the other channels for the other microphones. Again this is an option you can discuss if you are planning a live event.

These are options you’ll want to discuss and decide on with your video production company when planning a presentation recording.

Very often a speaker has a PowerPoint (PPT) or similar on-screen graphics to reinforce what they are saying. Without this, often what the presenter is saying is an incomplete story. The speaker might say something like “it is evident from this slide, etc.” and unless you can see the slide, it won’t make sense. Bottom line, you’ll likely want to include the PPT either with a live recording or afterwards via video editing.

Editing Options
Many video production companies handle this by manually editing in the individual PPT slides. This requires exporting the slides as images in PPT. Depending on the version of PPT you have, it might be as simple as using “save as” and choosing one of the image options. You can export individual images or the whole presentation. This works very well for slides that don’t have a lot of transitions or builds and particularly well if they are static on the screen for long intervals. It also helps if the presentation is easy to match the voice to slides. Though effective for some presentations, this does not capture live PPT transitions, builds, or anything else happening on the screen. If there is internet activity going on such as the presenter visiting a website during the presentation, it’d be difficult to replicate.

Current PowerPoint software also allows you to export an MP4 video up to 4K resolution. You’ll still need to sync up what is being said to the slides. A simple way to do this is during the presentation have your video production company use a second camera pointed at the screen and also capturing sound so that the video can be used as a guide during editing.

Because of these limitations, we don’t recommend either of the above options unless the presentation is very simple.

Our recommendation and the way we usually do it is to capture the PPT live by having the AV company staging the event give us a feed of the HDMI going to the projector(s). We have equipment that converts this feed to video with audio and captures a high-resolution copy of everything happening on-screen including emphasis provided by the speaker with his cursor, any videos played, or any internet activity shown.

In editing, you can combine the images or show each separately. You will want to consider this as an option and discuss it with your video production company and the AV people prior to the event because arrangements for equipment and testing is needed. Of course, this will still require combining the speaker and the presentations later in editing. The end product is often hosted on the internet or DVD packages still today where online security and connectivity may be an issue.
