Getting Started on YouTube Live

With the ever-growing popularity of web streaming and content, especially on YouTube and Twitch; the need for a high level production (or one that at least looks like it) is accelerating.  Just turning your webcam on won’t cut it anymore. You’re going to be up against a lot of competing content that looks professional. Essentially, you’re looking at a small-scale live production, where every aspect needs to be considered. So, where do you start? The majority of streamers already out there, most likely, will have started out with a webcam, routed through a CDN platform like OBS, which is free software that, as well as streaming, provides basic mixing features that allow them to create live productions. A basic enhancement is to stream direct from a professional camcorder or attach your existing camera to a Teradek VidiU Go or Datavideo streaming encoder.And, by all means, that’s where you should start too. But if your channel starts to grow and you pick up a decently sized viewer base, you may be able to start gaining revenue from your channel through video monetisation or subscriber donations. At this point, it’s definitely time to update your gear. Webcams are fine but, like TV, it’s a competitive market and subpar equipment and production value will leave you in the depths…Only to be overlooked by a bored viewer, aimlessly scrolling through YouTube.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.

GH5S Hits Broadcast Quality Benchmark in EBU Tests

The Panasonic Lumix GH5S has been tested by Colour Science Expert Alan Roberts according the European Broadcasting Union R.118 guidelines and, as a result, it is effectively approved for Broadcast use in HD and for second camera use in UHD productions. For acceptance in the EBU Tiering system, the camera should be used with the optional DMW-XLR1 sound module to allow for XLR audio connections. These camera tests produced a great result for the Lumix low-light champion, and also revealed some unexpected findings. The full report can be read on the European Broadcast Union’s website, and will also be hosted by the Guild of Camera Professionals.

Richard Payne on the GH5 - Behind the Headlines

GH5 - Behind the Headlines The blogosphere is awash with the GH5’s headline features: 4K at 50p, 4K 4:2:2 internal recording, in-body stabilization etc. These were all on my wish list when I met with Panasonic engineers a couple of years ago, but I’m amazed that they’ve been able to deliver on every front. Hidden away in behind the new headline grabbing features are a couple of things that you might be forgiven for missing. But believe me, these are just as ground-breaking as 10-bit capture to dual SD cards.
