PRACSIS films INSPIRE conference for a second year—this time in Strasbourg

PRACSIS was in Strasbourg last month to help organise and record video of the European Commission’s annual INSPIRE conference, which was in cooperation with the French Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition and the German Ministry of the Interior. The INSPIRE program is based on a 2007 EU directive that helps centralise the complex and fragmented world of geospatial data collection.

Like last year, PRACSIS  was responsible for all audio-visual services on site, stage direction during the plenary sessions, and producing video recordings of more than 50 individual sessions—equaling over 80 hours of footage. The recordings relied on both single and multi-camera production spread across multiple rooms of the venue.

After editing, the videos were published online for those who were unable to attend the conference in person, or for attendees that had to choose between the many concurrent sessions. (Watch here.) PRACSIS handled the post-processing and chapterisation of the recordings to ensure easy online navigation later.

Preserving conferences through video recording increases the amount of time that people—attendees and new online viewers alike—can spend with content. On location recording is a great way to maximise the impact of such busy, complex events.
