Hangouts On Air (HOA) brings all types of people together – from President Obama chatting with potential voters, to star-gazing enthusiasts sharing their view of the cosmos. Anyone can use HOA, but it’s important to set the scale of your Hangout and plan accordingly. If your goal is to host a grand “event” style Hangout that focuses on maximizing views, you should approach Hangouts on Air differently than someone who hosts a weekly HOA to slowly grow their community.
In this session, we will deep dive into HOA's, discuss strategies for conducting an effective HOA, and get hands on with some third party gear that will allow to to integrate professional studio cameras into your Hangouts and weave Hangouts into your studios current work flow, or take your HOA mobile.
