Audio Required Specifications
In order to provide the best possible viewing & listening experience for
the audience members of our annual BSA, the ASB & ALHS Tech Crew request
that all clubs/student groups follow these guidelines for submitted media for
the BSA. Thank you.
For Videos to be played during the BSA:
Video should be taken (captured) using a video camera (or smart phone)
that can shoot High Definition (HD) quality video so the image is not
pixelated & looks poor on a large screen.
Video should be captured holding the video camera so that it captures
widescreen video (a wide shot with a horizontal frame), NOT a tall
skinny video with large black boxes on the sides (this is very
Video should have credits at the end which include: names of the
individuals in the video (first names only are fine), who the video was
shot by, edited by ; citing the source of any music used in the video
with the following 3 things:
2. Official name of the song in quotes
3. The name of the official album that the music is from
Do not shoot video of people/objects in front of a very sunny/bright
window/glass door or else the people/objects will be dark-lit & hard to
see in the video (move away from bright windows to avoid this).
A Video’s Audio:
o If you have background music in your video, make sure that it is
NOT too loud & therefore makes it difficult to hear the voices of the
people in your video.
o Make sure you capture video where there is NOT loud &/or
distracting background noise happening or we won’t be able to
hear the voices of the people in your video.
Turn in your video as a HD video file format (these formats are
acceptable: .mov (Quicktime), .mp4 (H.264 Format), or .avi video (NOTE:
no BluRay video formats will be accepted).
Please test your video BEFORE submitting it for the BSA by playing in
a VLC Video Media Player ( http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html ) on
a computer PRIOR to turning it in by the deadline. Be sure to watch your
whole completed video, from start to finish, & make sure the audio & the
video quality are good & if not, fix it in your original video editing
software & re-export it.
Submitting your video (ONLY 2 ways):
1. Each video must be saved as an individual digital video file onto a
CD or DVD that is playable on a computer’s Media Player (i.e.: VLC
Player) (NOTE: No BluRay Discs will be accepted). Please label the
CD/DVD (using a Sharpie) with the name of the club, duration of the
video & the name of the contact person for the club.
2. Each video must be saved as an individual digital video file that is
playable on a computer’s Media Player (i.e.: VLC Player) and
uploaded to Google Drive and share with an open link to a BSA
coordinator. Please NAME the video file with the name of the club &
duration of the video.
For Audio (Music) to be Played during a BSA Performance:
Make sure that you have a high quality audio file to turn in, which is
created using iTunes and formatted as a music CD which works in a
CD player (NOT JUST A COMPUTER).
Please label your CD (using a Sharpie) with name of club, the contact
person and duration/length of the music.
Please test your Audio/Music BEFORE submitting it for the BSA by
