  • Merci I am going to talk about the latest approaches to reporting with iPhone and Samsung Smartphones. But first I want to briefly discuss how we need to be SMART about mobile media production.
  • Really SMART. And to do that, I want to share some of the knowledge gained in designing the world ’ s first SMART Media Lab in Tbilisi, Georgia.
  • The IREX S.M.A.R.T. Media Lab is the world ’ s first mobile-centric training and media production center designed for the next generation of digital journalists. The media lab opened in 2012 after 18 months of design and construction.
  • The S.M.A.R.T. Media Lab is designed for mobile multimedia news production and education from the very start. The technology, the spaces, the furniture, are all organized to be quickly reconfigured depending on the needs of the day. What may be a classroom space in the morning, could be used for television production in the afternoon The SMART Media Lab houses classrooms.
  • A shared equipment locker where kits of mobile production gear are checked out by faculty and student reporters.
  • A cafe
  • And production studios and event space where several schools in Tbilisi conduct multimedia journalism training programs. All of this take place in less than 400 square meters. To accomplish this we had to reject the current thinking about the ‘ Converged newsroom. ’
  • Too rigid, too centralized, too top-down. Inflexible and unintelligent. In others words, not mobile.
  • Instead we thought of the genius of Legos. What if instead of licking everything down, we instead designed the space and the technology to function as building blocks that can be creatively put together to serve the needs of the day. Video production for beginners, Documentary production for advanced users, Web production, Live streaming, Publishing, Teaching, mobile reporting, and Live Events.
  • The S.M.A.R.T. values guided our planning.
  • The walls are mobile.
  • The control room is on wheels. The desks fold up and everything rolls around easily. We don ’ t have a studio in this space, rather the entire space is designed to be a studio environment.
  • That ’ s just smart. So how do we apply those lessons to reporters using Smartphones?
  • (Laugh) If we extrapolate traditional approaches, we won ’ t be fast enough when technology leaps ahead.
  • Smartphone solutions provide a very low-cost way to jump-start your multimedia reporting expertise. But, the training, workflows and technology must be coordinated for smartphone MOJO to become an everyday habit.
  • RFE/RL is a massive operation with 28 languages in 21 countries. With over 400 full-time journalists, 750 freelancers, and 19 local bureaus, RFE/RL is one of the most comprehensive news operations in the world.
  • We spent 6 months researching and testing smartphone technologies, developing the training programs and workflows. We held Trainings for reporters meeting in central hubs Moscow, Prague, Tbilisi and Bishkek.
  • But, it takes more than handing out smartphones to your reporters and hoping for the best. RFE/RL decided to use Android.
  • What are the smartphones replacing? Point & shoot camerasConsumer-priced video camerasMarantz audio recorders

  • Typical gear to improve quality include Mini tripods and monopodsProfessional microphones and pre-ampsSmall lightsStable grips and mounts to reduce camera shakeRode, IK Multimedia, and Vericorder are the key suppliers of some of these solutions. I have brought examples with and can show you in person you would like to see them.
  • We looked at the current crop of phones and apps and defined four areas of concentration.Video productionAudio reportingPhoto + GPS reportingSocial media

  • Social Media Facebook Twitter Tumblr Vine
  • Once you have the right tech, it ’ s time to learn how to tell stories with these tools. Train reporters in the fundamental building blocks for producing compelling multimedia story packages with the rights app, tech and story approaches.
  • Training is split between smartphone and laptop tasks. Mobile = Smartphone + Laptop
  • Your smartphone can do a lot more than send Tweets, Instagram photos and status updates.What you needThe right kitThe right appsImmersive trainingWorkflow consulting
