There is no additional cost to your AVCA subscription. However, you may want to increase your maximum online storage hours. This is because each subscription level has a different limit for audio-only sessions versus video sessions. To discuss whether an increase may be right for you, please contact AVCA Sales.
The estimates provided below are in-line with the latest hardware costs and installation fees. However, AV Capture All does not spec, install, or support hardware. This guide is for providing ballpark estimates only.
The following questions are designed to help you arrive at an accurate cost estimate:
- How many camera angles are desired?
- What is the size of the room?
- What is the ceiling height? Is the ceiling drop-tiled or solid (for wiring)? Is there good lighting?
- How many council members at the dais?
- Any other staff positions that should be included in the shot?
- Do you want a shot of the person talking at the podium? Shot of the audience?
- Do you want to zoom in on individual council members, or is a wide-shot of all members acceptable?
Here are some cost ranges to assist with budget considerations related to the questions above.
- Single fixed camera mounted in the back of the room with zoom-able lens capturing a wide shot of entire council ~ $500 - $750
