Every April, Irwin Video head up to the Winter Gardens in Blackpool to film Usdaw’s biggest conference in its calendar. The UK’s fourth largest trade union hold their Annual Delegate Meeting, and we’re there to film the four day event in its entirety.

Working with T5 Event Media we set-up and operate a multi-camera system with HD vision mixing. Our equipment includes a wireless HD video transmitter and wireless talkback system, which enables us to utilise a mobile camera on the conference floor without the danger of running cables. The output from our vision mixer feeds two large-venue HD projectors as well as several plasma screens around the Winter Gardens.

We make HD recordings of the entire event and we also provide a video editor on-site who, equipped with an Avid edit suite, cuts together a highlights film which is played to the conference audience at the end of the last day. We also create compressed MPEG4 video files on-site which provide Usdaw with a comprehensive video archive of all debates and guest speakers.
