NYSCRA Upcoming Events:

Technology in Today’s New World – From Hybrid Depositions, Socially Distanced and Zepos and the Gizmos and Gadgets to Get you Through It

Presented by: Jessie Waack
Saturday, October 22, 2022
Live, Virtual via Zoom Meeting
7:00pm-8:30pm ET

Session Length: 90-minutes (.15 NCRA CEUs pending)
Price: $65 NYSCRA Member / $130 Non-Member / $20 Students

Session Description:
Today’s world is ever changing, and we need to be able to adjust with it.  It is scary navigating the world of microphones, sound cards and everything in between.  Join us to gain an understanding of how to troubleshoot your equipment and set up in any situation so you never have to turn down work again!  I will show you setups for hybrid depositions, socially distanced in-person and tweaks to make Zepos a dream!  Added bonus?  I will include the list of items and where to find them so you too can have a setup you have always dreamed about.

  1. Attendees can learn how to troubleshoot their own setups in lieu of having to waive off work because they cannot record audio

  2. Attendees can learn how to take things they do in 5 steps and break it down into one or two, which leads to less mistakes being made when setting up equipment

  3. Attendees can learn how to make their own formats and setups for worksheets instead of printing and carrying paper with them everywhere

This session will be recorded. Be on the lookout for the link to purchase the recording a few days after the session. Please note, the recorded session will NOT be eligible for CEU points.
