In today’s world of remote interaction, video has become an effective medium for sharing knowledge. Especially in the education industry, video learning is playing an integral role in promoting student engagement and increasing the efficacy of training. That being said, video production can be significantly time- and resource-intensive. Also, the costs involved in the process increasingly rise with the demand for high-quality video clips. While creating knowledge clips, using PPT as the background and presenting it in front of a green screen has become a common practice. The conventional video production workflow is to do the presentation in front of a greenscreen, hand over the PPT presentation to a video editor who edits the slides and once done, returns the first draft to the presenter for feedback. A list of changes to be made goes back to the editor, and after the re-edit, the presenter has a knowledge clip ready. This process is highly expensive and takes days or even weeks to complete. The crew, on the other hand, needs to operate highly technical equipment like lights, camera, microphone, video production switcher, prompter or ‘AutoCue,’ and audio console during the recording.
To simplify the rather complicated process of creating high-quality videos, WebClip2Go, an offshoot of Burst Video, offers superior video production tools that aim to revolutionise the way in which content is created, drive down the cost of creation, and make professional-level video production more accessible to all. TheWebClip2Go system embraces a unique approach to producing presenter-based video content and enables a teacher to record highly professional videos without any specialised equipment. By setting up PowerPoint to act as the video script editor, users can seamlessly create a video script without changing anything to the daily PPT use. WebClip2Go integrates all video production gears into a single software application, allowing the presenter to walk into the studio, begin with the session by answering a few simple questions in the wizard and start recording. Once the PPT presentation is done in front of the prompter, the video clip is ready to use. This crewless approach needs no editing or any other post-production routines, making it a seamless and relaxing experience.
"Unlike the traditional video recording and production process, WebClip2Go allows users to create a professional-level video clip in just two steps—create a script and record," says Gerrit Bulten, CEO of WebClip2Go. While recording, WebClip2Go renders everything in real-time, and editing is combined with script creation. The script is created using PPT in the usual way, which requires a one-time integration action. With this step, numerous videos can be recorded without the need for editing. This allows AV departments and teams to focus on the creative aspects without spending time on laborious and repetitive editing operations.

With extensive experience in the television industry, WebClip2Go focuses on creating compelling video content— not just a talking head next to a PPT slide, but TV-like, broadcast quality content. “With audience’s ever-declining attention span, a long unappealing video just doesn’t make the cut anymore. Here, we make a difference as WebClip2Go contains all the tools mostly used in TV production to make the video pleasing to watch,” mentions Bulten. With the right blend of purpose and quality, the company revolutionises and democratises video production to help users convey their message in an interesting manner. “With a relatively low CAPEX and an extremely low OPEX, WebClip2Go is a game changer in the video industry. Customers confirm 80 percent to 90 percent cost savings with the WebClip2Go workflow compared to the traditional production workflow,” adds Bulten.
WebClip2Go’s innovative and simplified approach to video production has benefitted many clients. The Delft University of Technology sought to create a fully DIY studio to produce large quantities of knowledge clips affordably. With WebClip2Go, creating videos is a breeze as the presenter walks in, opens the WebClip2Go wizard, answers the questions, records, and walks out with a complete video that is stored on a USB stick or network. Also, subtitling scientific videos can be challenging as an interpreter needs to have a basic understanding of the subject and language fluency. WebClip2Go uses the PPT notes as created by the subject specialist, and exports them as transcript files that can be uploaded along with the video to any video platform supporting subtitling. By using the PPT notes also as text for the prompter,WebClip2Go enables the presenter to look at the viewer for better eye contact. The intuitive AI-based teleprompting feature scrolls through the text according to the presenter’s speech pace, eliminating the need for a prompter operatoror manually adjusting the prompter speed.
Steering ahead, WebClip2Go plans to introduce new spectacular features like extensive sound processing, perspective for more realistic presentations, interfacing to third-party gears for stunning Virtual Studio integration to enhance the viewer experience, especially for students and other knowledge video viewers. Currently covering the Benelux and the Nordic countries, WebClip2Go looks to expand its footprint to the U.S. and the rest of Europe in the near future.
