Living Live: Making the Most of Graphics in Your Live Productions


On this episode of Living Live with Ross Video, host Tyler Kern was joined by Ross Director of Product Management Patrick Twomey to discuss an often-overlooked, yet extremely important piece of live production – graphics.

Graphics, Twomey said, are an integral part of providing a complete live production experience – while video and audio capabilities are critical and receive plenty of attention, graphics are a great way to provide information, clarity and more.

“One thing that’s always on the screen is the graphic,” Twomey said. “You have to make sure you know what you want to have shown and how you want it to appear.”

The key to successful graphic creation, Twomey said, is a simple one – preparation.

“The big part of what you’re trying to do is make sure that you can cleanly present information to the viewer,” he said. “If you know what type of content you want to present and how you want to present it, that’s goes a long way. If you’re not prepared, you’re going to be spitballing a lot of ideas.”

Kern and Twomey also discussed some best practices for graphics creation, including sticking to the region of interest to keep graphic file sizes down, making a full-screen reference to make it simpler for designers to create consistent pieces, and working within native rendering tools like Ross Video’s XPression tools.
