Why Should I film my podcast with HD Cameras?

Filming your podcast with HD cameras can offer several benefits:

Better quality: HD cameras can provide higher resolution and better image quality, which can make your podcast look more professional and visually appealing. At VOXPOD, our two studios are equipped with world-renowned Sony Alpha 6300 mirrorless cameras to ensure crisp HD footage of your podcast. 

Increased engagement: Visual content can help to keep your audience engaged and interested in your podcast. By filming your podcast, you can capture not just the audio, but also the body language and facial expressions of your guests, which can add an extra dimension to the conversation. Moreover, VOXPOD’s studios support multiple camera angles. Our engineers can perform a live video mix for you, chopping and changing camera angles to help create a more stimulating viewing for your audience. Our Red Studio supports up to five individual camera angles and our Green supports three. Why not get in touch and see which studio is best for you?

Multiple formats: By recording video in addition to audio, you can repurpose your content in multiple formats, such as creating video clips for social media or posting the full video version on YouTube or Vimeo. This can help to expand your audience and reach new viewers who may prefer to watch rather than listen to your podcast. We have also noticed that our podcasters’ audiences exponentially grow after they start to post regular video clips on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. Short video clips quickly capture a viewer’s attention and can succinctly communicate your podcast’s message. With so many podcasts to choose from, listeners often find new podcasts through these professional short-form advertisements. 

Flexibility: Having video footage can give you more flexibility in the editing process, allowing you to add additional visuals or graphics to your podcast. If you want to tell a more cohesive narrative, inserting external images that you have either recorded yourself or taken from a third party, can create a more impactful message. The nature of recording video as well as audio also means that you gain an extra safety net if there are any issues when recording your audio. 

Overall, filming your podcast with HD cameras can add an extra layer of professionalism and engagement to your content, while also giving you more flexibility and options in the post-production process.
