Video mixing is reshaping the mobile entertainment industry. Visitors to the BPM Show can get an informative guide on how to put this trend to work for them at the Video Mixing seminar presented by American DJ and American Audio. This session will be a roundtable presentation hosted by YouTube sensation Brian S. Redd along with two mobile DJs who have extensive experience in video mixing: Edgar (DJ Etronik) Bernal and DJ Andi Crampton.

The session will include hands-on demos and audience participation and a question-answer session. Some of the topics covered will include: getting started in video mixing; common pitfalls; the interplay of lighting and video mixing; new ideas on how to integrate video technology into your performance with teleprompters, timelines (for example showing the evening's schedule) and flat screen TV monitors. Without recommending specific brands, the panelists will provide a guide to putting together a video mixing gear package that includes an adaptor that links your MAC or PC to your video screen.

The seminar will also cover how video mixing increases the value and revenue of a DJ’s show. This session is information only, it will NOT be a product focused seminar.
