GEAR YOU NEED TO STREAM ONLINE
Lets get started with a rundown of what you need to stream your video. You will need to choose a camera out of the many options available, as well as a microphone so that everyone can hear you. If you want to make dynamic presentations, you should look at getting a video mixer. And for online video, you will need a streaming encoder.
Robotic PTZ cameras allow a single operator to run the cameras remotely — plus, they can fit in tighter spaces.
Handheld or Tripod Mounted cameras are a great choice as well – especially if it has a built in mic or the ability to add one.
Most important is the Video Signal – there are three types: SDI, HDMI, IP. On the newer cameras, ethernet and wireless can connect the camera to the network.
Microphones are necessary and the best mic is the one you already own, whether it is handheld or wireless. If your camera has a microphone built in, you can use it. For more than one mic, or if your video broadcasting system only has one input, then you will also need an audio mixer. However, we need to make sure we can get that into the encoder.
If you are going to use more than one camera, or want to make your presentation more dynamic, then you should look at adding a mixer. Video mixers allow you to switch between multiple sources, add graphics and presentations (like Powerpoint), mix between multiple cameras, and even operate robotic cameras. Many of them record and stream – as well solving several problems at once so you can get your message out easier than ever.
