Video Audio: What You Need to Know About Audio for Video Production

GETTING GOOD AUDIO FOR YOUR VIDEO

video audio

Quality audio for your video is absolutely ESSENTIAL.

Viewers are more forgiving of a crummy video image than they are of bad audio. If the sound on your video is bad, people simply WILL NOT WATCH! Sad but true and I’ve seen it a million times.

If you improve the audio quality of your videos, they will be more watchable and you will achieve greater success.

But how do you make sure to get good audio? Quality audio in video production brings up a lot of questions.

  • What kind of microphones should I use?
  • What are the pros and cons of different types of microphones?
  • How do I use a microphone for best results?
  • Do I need to spend extra on a wireless microphone?
  • Can I just use the microphone attached to my camcorder?
  • What about music for my video?

Getting good quality audio does not have to be hard, nor does it require expensive microphones.

Although expensive mics are nice. 🙂

  1. Our entire production workflow from capture through final output is designed to not only produce high-quality video but, surprisingly, to produce this quality at the lowest possible cost. Instead of cutting corners in quality to save money, we realize significant savings because of the efficiency of the total end-to-end workflow; high-quality products can be produced with minimal professional time required in the end-to-end production chain.

  2. Hi Silver price.

    That sounds like a good example of efficiency. Sometimes cutting corners is merely penny wise and pound foolish.
    Thanks for your insight.
