Productiehuis runs the equipment in/on the stages in the main tents during the daily programmed content (whatever it is). We run the lighting, the projectors, the audio and the video equipment.


Before the event

Before the event we define the technical requirements, send them to a number of suppliers and from that choose the supplier. The video equipment (camera, streaming) supplier has already been chosen.

During the event

During the event we need a lot of volunteers, in particular camera operators, audio mixers and video mixers. We also need a few other types of volunteers, see below. Since all of these types of volunteers are heavily dependent on some form of knowledge of the hardware you will be operating, you can only be allowed to sign up for a shift after a short introduction/training. If you've helped before on events like these this training can be really short but if you are a novice we will show you how to operate the equipment and the standards we have set for ourselves. This will usually be a 1 hour presentation followed by as much hands-on training as time allows. Usually this will be on the day before the program starts, but we also will be able to show you want to do during more personal sessions.

Below are the volunteers needed to run one of the main stages for one day (based on the experience of SHA2017, 34c3 and 25c3, and cccamp19)

Category Description Numbers required/time period/stage Numbers required per day
Stage responsible Responsible for building up/tearing down the (mainly) video equipment on stage but also monitor other equipment in our area of responsibility during buildup/teardown. During the event the second level technical support for AV Technician 1/day 1/day
AV Technician Responsible for the hour to hour running of the stage during the event. Coordinates the running of the stage with the herald. Makes sure the presenter(s) are miked up and laptop(s) connect to the projection system and when necessary to the audio equipment. 2/day 2/day
Audio mixer Making sure the audio mixed correctly and is according to our specifications, for the tent *and* the stream. 1/presentation 12/day
Video mixer Start the stream at the beginning of the presentation, choosing camera to be used in mix, coordinating with camera volunteers, compositing the camera(s), slides and/or other sources to an image according to our standards, stop the stream at the appropriate time 1/presentation 12/day
Camera operator Operate a video camera and make sure the image is composed to our standards (image composition, sharpness, etc) 2/presentation 24/day
Video editors Edit the recordings for each presentation 2/day 2/day


This means that with 12 presentations per day per stage tent we have 53 shifts for which we need at minimum 29 volunteers/day excluding the team itself.

All volunteer types are a locked group for which volunteers can sign up, but are entered into the pool upon approval from our team. Only then can volunteers sign up for a shift. The assumption on the current numbers is that we will have on average 12 45-60 minutes talks per day on a stage. If this estimate is low, the number of volunteers (that are a multiple of 12) will increase accordingly. Note that shifts for these volunteers are preferably staggered such that volunteers can't sign up for subsequent shifts and get really tired.

Stream observers Compare a live stream to our standards and report on them. When something needs immediate attention report this immediately to the team 1/presentation 12/day
