Recording a Webinar can be an easy way to meet the goal of spreading the information of your content. Turning your event into an accessible and long-lasting experience for your target audience. 

It is widespread to watch a Webinar, enjoy the moment and then try to find it to watch it all over again. Sometimes you get distracted and miss some vital part of that moment, or you are having such a great time and want to share it with your colleagues and friends. 

Besides, having On Demand content helps you engage and connect with your audience after the seminar. A Webinar is an essential source of insights and valuable information, so you might want to pay close attention to it or even have the opportunity to watch it again. If you record it, you will be able to watch it again and share it with people who need the content.   

What tools do you need to record a Webinar? 

To record a webinar with high quality, you must have some tools to help you with that, like a computer, a cell phone, a platform, or even a tablet. Choosing the best tool that relies on your goals with the recording files and analyses regarding the pros and cons. 

1. Mobile phones, Tablets, or Computers

Usually, you can use the same device for recording and editing, whether a computer, tablet or smartphone. If you have a computer with a microphone, camera, and enough processing power, you can do the basics of setting up or editing a webinar. However, each has its advantages and disadvantages.

It may be better to use a computer if you’re juggling between multiple speakers on camera and other images during your presentation Webinar and ensure your recording turns out how you’d like it to. When recording a speaker on camera, a smartphone or tablet may be the simplest and most flexible option.

2. Microphones or other audio devices

To record a webinar effectively, you need a high-quality microphone. Having quality audio can make the difference between your audience paying attention to your content and being distracted.

If you’re using a phone, tablet, or computer to record, there is probably a microphone built-in. The built-in microphone is fine for everyday use, but an external microphone, headset, or earphones with a built-in microphone are a better option when it comes to something a bit more professional.

3. Lighting devices 

A webinar’s lighting can be a bigger problem than your camera. Even the best camera can only do so much if the subject doesn’t appear on the screen.

It might be worth considering a ring light or positioning yourself to get the most out of any available light. Your skin tone and environment will determine how you will light, so be sure to adapt your lighting technique accordingly.

4. Video tools for recording

It is more likely that you will share your screen with viewers when you record a webinar. There are lots of screen recording apps to choose from.

For mobile phones, there are tools that work both on iPhone and Android, and there are unique features like resolution control and other camera configurations to ensure high quality is achieved.

When it comes to computer-based live streaming software, InEvent has robust features that can be used to Livestream on other platforms, including editing, streaming, recording, and integrations with YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms to upload right away.

5. Editing Tools

Choose software that allows you to edit both the video and audio of your recorded Webinar. Flashback Pro for Windows, for example, lets you edit background noise such as keystrokes and clicks. Look for editors that can help you with tasks such as reducing background noises, removing video backgrounds, splitting videos, merging videos, creating thumbnails, etc.
