Behind the scenes: the making of a Qrodo Event (Part 1)

Thursday, October 9, 2008

Many qrodo events can be setup and life-casted on-the-go, just bring your camcorder, tripod, laptop and 3G modem and get started.

Most often however you want to be professional and create a high-profile events that you announce to your friends and network. Keep in mind also that many Qrodo Channel owners will rate event producers and have higher revenue sharing ratios for creators with a good track record.

Planing a Qrodo Event:

  1. Write down a Story in a paragraph or so.
  2. Talk to the organizer of the sport event, set expectations, exchange ideas
  3. Visit the venue for the event ASAP, test bandwidth, check power outlets, look for good spots
  4. Think through the sport specifics. What will happen game day? Will you have a long Qrodo Event spanning many games, or do the sport allow for many events?
  5. Are you gonna use the Event Cockpit to enter dynamic event information? Who does it?
  6. Write down a time table for game day.
  7. Write down a roles and crew list for game day.
  8. Configure the camcorder and create the events in Qrodo, you can manage and edit anything until the event is started.
  9. If possible do a general rehearsal at the venue with the exact same setup as you are going to use on game day. You can temporarily change the publishing channel to a “Test Channel” while running the rehearsal.
  10. At game day, gather a good hour before the games in the venue, go over the last details.
  11. Hook up power, carry tables, set up rain cover, connect to Internet, start Qrodo!
  12. A few minutes before the game chose “Start Event” and open up the cockpit.
  13. Type a comment: “The game starts in five minutes”.
  14. Set the event timer to “0”, Press “Record” and start.
