March 23 2012, e-Visions Founder and Project Manager Eric Whiteside along with App Developer Brandon McDowell started the day off in Longview, Tx covering media for the Jarvis Homecoming Weekend Alumni registration. Later that day the eVision team headed down to the Maude Cobb Convention Center to get set up for the Friday Night Fish Fry event that started at 6 and the the Tally Rally which started at 8.
On this entire trip, we decided to broadcast live. So first we decided to run a test. So we set up our lap tops, and connected our cameras to our tripods to test our live broadcasting speed. Then we took our camcorder and our Canon camera and polished the lenses. After all the testing It was 6 o’clock and the people where starting to crowd the Convention center. Brandon started taking pictures, while Eric tested the internet connection speed. The whole event was a success.
Evision left and got prepared for the next day. The next day (Saturday March 24th), the evisions team, headed back to Jarvis in Hawkins, Tx for the Soon after we headed upstairs from the registration building. We went directing to where they were holding the “Meet the Candidates”/NAA meeting in the church.
This meeting was held for the Jarvis staff and Alumni. They got a chance to meet and vote for the next Jarvis National Alumni Association president and staff. So we first set up our lap tops, then we set up one of our HD logitech computer cameras and connected it to a tripod, lastly we set up our Sony camcorder for recording purposes. While live broadcasting and recording, Brandon was walking around the church taking pictures of different figures at the meeting. Afterwards the team headed back down to The Maude Cobb Convention Center to get set up for the Centennial Pioneer Hall of Fame Induction Reception and the Centennial Banquet. It went well, At 6tThe Convention center was well packed. While setting up, The gentleman responsible for putting the banquet together pulled Brandon aside and asked him to record the Hall of Fame Induction Reception and asked if he could later make it into a dvd for people to be able to get.
The team abided, got the job done and headed back into where the banquet was because it was about to start. Eric then had a screen that projected from the ceiling to show the alumni, the website that we build and that we where broadcasting live over the internet. People were greatly impressed and complimated Eric on his hard work. Brandon was taking pictures of the people in the event. This event went over very well. The team decided to pack up and head up to Dallas where Eric was to meet FBCHP for media coverage on church photos the next morning to put on their website. When Evisions got to the hotel, they did their equipment check and found they they left the powercord to the sony camcorder, which is what we need to record and take pictures of the church the next day.
The next morning the team got up and with time already pushing headed to best buy to buy a brand new camera, seeing that they could not find a quick powercord to replace the old one. Once bought they rushed to the church where the team just missed the santuary. With what had happend. The team still decided to recorded and take pictures of what we could of the church and the Pastor for the website. It was great, afterwards we left and went to the hotel where the team put up some of the pictures from Jarvis and FBCHP events. We then did our final equipment check and got prepared for the final day before we flew out. The next morning the team went to go take some final shots of the church before heading back to South Carolina. Even through the unfornate mishaps, the whole trip was ultimately a Success. So in all, thats One for the Evisions team.
