Friday Fun: Backstage Tour of Partner Summit

- May 28, 2010 - 1 Comment

Year after year, Partner Summit provides an opportunity to interact with Cisco executives, learn more about Cisco programs, and network with other partners. Though I’ve been involved in the event for a couple of years now, until I went on a backstage tour, I didn’t realize how much video and audio equipment–along with the staff to run it–was required to make the even a success.

From the big screens you saw during keynotes, to the audio being piped through the live and virtual events, it takes a crew of people and truckloads of equipment to produce Partner Summit.

I was able to bring my video camera backstage for a tour and to capture the crew working on the event as it happened. Follow me as I take you through the seldom-seen backstage areas of this year’s Partner Summit.

Which piece of video or audio equipment is on your wishlist? I have to say, I’d like to have one of those jibs that was used to capture video from a variety of angles on stage and in the audience.
