The use of seven cameras allows more eyes and ears in the room. To capture the full emotion and reaction of an audience, every corner needs to be captured.

In a forum like the impeachment hearings, the use of seven cameras allows the director to tell the story without disruptive movement to the viewers, capturing clean, crisp images from all parties.

Extensive camera use allows viewers to truly feel as if they are in the room. Picture a sporting event with all of the camera angles; you are placed in the center of the action.
