'Fundamentals of AV Workshop' Pre-Con at IPSSW 2015 May 3rd in Vacouver
Looking to learn how integrate audiovisual systems and processes into your healthcare simulation program? Are you new to the technology, production techniques, or lab design? Join myself and other SimGHOSTS leadership for our comprehensive “Fundamentals of A/V” pre-conference workshop at the International Pediatric Society Symposium and Workshop May 3rd in beautiful Vancouver Canada!
In this workshop SimGHOSTS Founder and Executive Director Lance Baily teams up with SimGHOSTS Event Director Ryan Eling and SimGHOSTS Vice President Ferooz Sekandarpoor to cover the ins and outs of audiovisual technology and its use in healthcare simulation. Drawing on their experiences in Hollywood, higher education media technology and simulation center design, this dynamic team will use hands on demonstrations and activities to explore the many factors when choosing, installing and operating the latest in audiovisual technology. The workshop will cover four major topics: components to an A/V system, overview of major simulation A/V platforms, simulation A/V design concepts and the basics of shooting video.
Simulation centers use audiovisual technology to record and stream video content; This requires many technological components which are often locked behind cabinets and in closets. In the first third of this workshop, the doors will be pulled wide open as we look at cameras, mixers, cables, speakers and more. Get your hands on many pieces of hardware and learn how equipment from multiple manufacturers work together to create an audiovisual recording system.
In order to have a successful simulation program, a center must have a robust and reliable audiovisual streaming and recording system. These A/V systems are a significant investment, so how does a simulation center staff select the appropriate solution to handle their needs? How do you seamlessly integrate this critical technology into your center? What other technological systems must be considered when designing the A/V system for a simulation center? Discussion will cover the types of simulation labs (OR Type, ICU type and Ward type, Skills lab), proper layout/standard layout, Audio Video infrastructure, IT requirements and incorporating telemedicine. The audience will learn the tips and techniques that are required to design or retrofit their simulation spaces.
For the final section of the workshop, the presenters will discuss the basics of video and audio recording, including cinematography and other Hollywood techniques. Participants will then divide into small groups and have the opportunity to film short movies. A final discussion will cover video editing and how simple, free or cheap software can allow simulation centers to create their own training and orientation videos.
Professionals working in simulation who utilize audio or video equipment to stream, transmit or record simulation exercises.
- Identify the required and optional components to an A/V capture system
- Compare and contrast the types of A/V system designs suitable for simulation
- Demonstrate proper video and audio recording techniques
- Describe the challenges and opportunities unique to A/V solutions in simulation
- Assess your own center’s A/V system(s) flexibility, capability, and usability.
