Workshop, Seminar & Conference Rates

Determining your cost is easy – rates are primarily based on the duration of your event. Follow the 3 steps below to add up the cost for your workshop, seminar or conference.

Step 1 – Videotaping:

  • event duration between 2.5-5 hours = $960
  • event duration between 5-8 hours = $1330

Step 3 – Delivery:

You can have your video put on DVD, converted to a web video format, or archived onto DVCAM digital tape. Select the option(s) you need and add the costs to Step 1 and Step 2.

  • If you don’t require editing and just need the raw footage as a web video or on DVD, the costs are:
    • event duration under 2.5 hours = $200
    • event duration between 2.5-5 hours = $260
    • event duration between 5-8 hours = $320

The above rates reflect videotaping a single speaker. If you have more than one speaker, speaking simultaneously (as in a ’round-table’ or ‘panel discussion’), contact us for a quote as the technical requirements are slightly different.
