My Library Talk Now Available on You Tube


Recommended Posts

I spoke at the Alexandria, Va. public library a few months back. C-SPAN was supposed to be there, but it was videotaped anyhow. I discuss my book and politics in general.

The audio is very hard to hear on this clip.

Warning: Science content ahead - I used to teach this in college. For prospective speakers: The objective is to maximize the signal to noise ratio, to maximize the direct sound (signal) and minimize the reflected sound (noise), by placing the active microphone ACAP - as close as possible to the sound source. A podium mic is good, but a wireless lavalier is even better, and any video production company/person should have access to one. The mic on the camera rarely produces acceptable audio for a one-shot archival recording, and once it's printed to tape, there is very little one can do to improve it. (A boost in level, a bit of compression and an EQ boost in the voice mids can help a bit.) Just sayin'...

I actually had the sound enhanced- the first version was even lower. But if it's too low to hear clearly, you can just go into your own settings on you tube and make it louder.
