If the room lighting is insufficient, post-production costs may be increased. The Broadcast Center is not responsible for the failure of equipment that is not managed by our Department.


Dress for a Video Interview

Here are some tips for clothing in video:

  1. No thin stripes
  2. Avoid very bright, hot colors like hot pink, fuschia, bright orange, and true red, all of which cause a ghosting effect when the person moves
  3. No bright white, which may blow out exposure
  4. No identifiable corporate logos, which we would have to blur out

Also, extreme contrast between bright and dark is challenging for video to expose properly. Everything else is fine, as far as fabric goes. For the microphone, it’s much easier to attach it if the person has a collar on his/her shirt or blazer.
