1.   Privacy

As far as the design of your office’s recording space is concerned, privacy plays a key role. It keeps confidential data secure. What is more, it gives the speaker a fair amount of control which bolsters their confidence. Some of the basic ideas on how to improve privacy include using soundproof treatments, space dividers, and pods. Acoustic pods are an excellent solution as they cover all three types of privacy: architectural, visual, and acoustic

– says Mateusz Barczyk, Senior Brand Manager, Hushoffice.

Privacy is a question of security

You do business using sensitive information which cannot be overheard or seen by unauthorised people. When you use a private recording space, you protect your team’s ideas, plans, trade secrets, confidential data, or IP. Additionally, you comply adequately with data protection or similar regulations.

In a hybrid world, client confidentiality is a genuine concern. By using solutions that provide appropriate, soundproof spaces to record and present sales decks, work updates, and proposals to clients, you establish trust with key business partners and make sure each client’s sensitive information is safe

– adds Mateusz Barczyk, Senior Brand Manager, Hushoffice.

Employees are more confident when they record in private.

The majority of employees inevitably experience some degree of performance anxiety when they record themselves. A quiet, private recording space helps overcome such fear and allows the presenter to deliver his speech in a more natural way.

Privacy and a powerful sense of control go hand in hand.

Private recording spaces such as booths give employees an empowering sense of control over the creative process. They encourage them to set up shop, relax, and focus. Innate ease and charm flourish contributing to successful communication.

2.   First-rate acoustics

Confident, crystal clear speech is the key part of any client-facing or high-level meeting. It makes a pitch more successful. When every word is clear and easily comprehensible, communication and connection open up new opportunities. And that’s crucial in the business world, with persuasion and trust-building always being the point

– says Mateusz Barczyk, Senior Brand Manager, Hushoffice.

Invest in a high-quality microphone.

The most important technological device for a recording setup is, undeniably, the microphone. While it is relatively easy to excuse a grainy video or picture, unclear speech will most probably make video attendees zone out. A lapel microphone is a perfect low-profile and effective solution.

Reduce background noise.

A perfect recording space must be quiet. That is why portable office sound booths such as hushHybrid are so popular – they offer supreme acoustic design. Also, they are equipped with basic features like furniture, lights or airflow – hushHybrid is even  fitted with optional video light stripes.

3.   Top-tier lighting

The space for recording must be well-lit. The light should be flattering, even, and comfortable for the eyes of presenters and the audience.

Make adjustable lighting part of your recording space.

Too bright lighting is tiring for your eyes, and it produces harsh shadows washing the subject out. Poor lighting can make for blurry, low-quality video and lead to the overall feeling of sluggishness. Thus controllable lighting is the best choice as it can be fine-tuned to reach the optimum balance.

Eliminate glare.

Bright light coming from overhead lights or sunny windows may be really distracting. It can force the presenter to squint their eyes, which might look unprofessional and inattentive. So, if you want your recording space to provide visual comfort by reducing glare, you may need to adjust monitor angles and darken surfaces.

Invest in a ring light or LED panel.

Making use of a ring light or LED panel ensures consistent, evenly distributed lighting. It adds a flattering radiance and eliminates harsh shadows, which results in a polished, approachable appearance. Both solutions are quick to install and user-friendly, which additionally makes them a worthwhile  investment.

5 handy tips for recording company presentations:

  1. Go for neutral colours and understated/simple patterns rather than busy or bold clothing which may seem unattractive or off-putting.

  2. If you stick to a script, slides, or note cards, go through your presentation several times to familiarise yourself with its flow and practice clicking or flipping through the material while you are speaking. Take into consideration filming a dry run for peer review or rehearsing your presentation in front of a colleague.

  3. Set your camera lens at or slightly above eye level and make it point downwards. Backlighting should be avoided as it makes it difficult to see the subject clearly, and obscures both facial expressions and body language.

  4. Before the presentation, test your technical setup, stop all background software, and turn off all notifications.

  5. Make eye contact with the camera (not the screen) trying to speak as if you are addressing one person.
