Sound quality is as important as image quality

Why is audio important?
It is crucial to have the best sound quality possible. Remember that a considerable part of video content is today consumed with headphones, so clear sound is crucial. There’s nothing more annoying in these cases than poor quality sound content being shouted directly to your brain!
If the sound is poor, the quality of the video is compromised and this might lead viewers to stop watching it.

A few tips for good audio quality:

  • Avoid noisy pieces of clothing and try not to touch the microphone whilst recording because it will pick it up
  • Avoid hitting the table where the microphone is placed. The noise is usually picked up by your camera/microphone
