2 Broadcast Rooms for Tolkien Moot XI

This year we have not just one, but TWO broadcast rooms...

RSVP closes in just a few days, do not miss out!

The upstairs room has a 60" big screen for a remote guest speaker to join us. See our first use of this setup at last month's Tolkien Society meeting (bugs and all) here:

Ea Tolkien Society June 2015 Screencap

This setup let us mix Skype and Google+ Hangout simultaneously, but doesn't have green screen features. It is also a more casual seating arrangement. Though it will be rearranged to allow for the much larger convention audience attendance. This photo is from our monthly Tolkien Society meetings/broadcasts.

The second broadcast room has a green screen setup that allows images to show in the background. For example, in the setup above, when we were trying to show the map, I had to move the camera up to the TV. While with the green screen, it can show up in the background behind the speakers. This setup is only able to use Google+ Hangout however.

Here is a photo of the second room setup and ready to go for Tolkien Moot XI (still being setup):

RSVP Closes Wednesday, July 15th.

Conference begins Friday July 17th.
