We also want to promote your live feeds whenever there is an opportunity. So please let us know if you are livestreaming and your times.

Live-streaming Recommendations​

The simplest solution for Live-streaming is a smart phone with a really good camera and a tripod that can support a Smartphone. I also recommend that if you don’t have studio lights to use natural lighting as much as possible as your home lights will downgrade the quality of your footage.

Quality isn’t everything. In a crisis like the one we are currently facing just being there for people is even more important.

If you want to take it a step further here are some reccomendations:

Streaming Software

(Streaming software allows you to add extra cameras, videos, countdowns, lower thirds, etc. If you only have one camera and you don’t want to add anything else to the broadcast, you may be able to skip this software.)

Free:
OBS https://obsproject.com/

Paid:
XSplit https://www.xsplit.com/buy
Wirecast https://www.telestream.net/wirecast/

Capture Device

(This allows you to bring the video into your computer, you can’t just plug a video feed into your computer without some form of capture device.)
