    Stream your event or meeting live using multiple cameras

    Comments Off on Stream your event or meeting live using multiple cameras

    The definition of streaming live
    Streaming live is sending a video signal over the internet, so that it can be viewed in real time on a platform like You Tube or Facebook.

    Anyone with a You Tube or Facebook account and a mobile device which records video can easily stream an event, meeting, or music video live with that device as it is being recorded.

    The process is as simple as logging in to a You Tube or Facebook account, and then clicking the Create and Go Live buttons!


    If more than one camera is desired

    If it is desirous to use two cameras in the live stream, a switcher will be needed.

    With a switcher, one person can operate which one of the cameras is live and at what point.

    Any camera with an HDMI port will work, although remote PTZ cameras will enable them to be operated at a workstation.

    The remote cameras are called PTZ cameras (Pan, Tilt, and Zoom), and they come in all types and costs.

    Sony makes a very good PTZ camera with 30x for under $2,000 each, and the controller that goes with it is about $1,650. That means that more than one camera can be operated in a workstation by one person.

    The last remaining piece needed is a switcher, which can be gotten for around $1,000.  The switcher lets the operator broadcast which camera is being shown live – and it can easily be operated by the person operating the camera controller.

    Interested in setting up a multi camera live streaming production?
    Hire someone to engineer it for you, listing all the equipment and materials you will need.

    TV88 has been broadcasting live and prerecorded content in The Florida Keys since 2012.   or   (305) 587-9830
