A look behind the scenes as to how our Product Specialist Kriss Hampton recently ran a live training session with hundreds of online viewers.
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.
Live from Sussex and Stockport (via. London) Live Production has always had its own set of challenges, including managing a network of cameras and equipment for a show where there’s no option of a second take. Keeping up with the technology is hard enough, but what if all of this has to be done with presenters that are geographically separated, with an MCR operator that can’t get to the control room. Comprehensive hardware options have existed for years. Portable production units (PPU) combine decoders, switchers, and encoders from manufacturers such as Blackmagic Design, Datavideo, Teradek, and many more into a transport ready solution. Software production is a real solution. It’s designed to give you most of the capabilities of a broadcast unit, in a package that’s installable on a laptop, or as a compact turnkey solution.
Panasonic sold hundreds of AW-HE2 camera units. When it was discontinued, the calls kept coming in from customers who needed something of this size and functionality for small radio studios and news studios. At last we have a worthy replacement in the AW-UE4. It is a little bigger than the HE2, but it has tons more features, many of these are particularly useful at the moment. Great in a tight space The UE4 has a very wide-angle lens with a 111-degree field of view. This means sitting on the desk in my small office the camera can see the whole room. There is a 4X digital zoom which you can use to crop in for closer head shots (or to hide the pile of toilet rolls and corned beef in the opposite corner). If you are really hard-up for space because it’s only 500 grams it can be hung upside-down on a ceiling or under a shelf using the supplied bracket.
There’s an awful lot more content being produced on Zoom. Over the last week as gym instructors, chefs and teachers have been flocking to the Zoom video conferencing platform to communicate with audiences worldwide. The typical kit being used is a laptop, phone or iPad. The typical result is tinny audio with muffled voices, slightly blurred video and a really distracting, busy background. Let’s not kid ourselves. We’re not going to get broadcast results in a flash. But there are three simple steps we can all take to improve matters no end.
There’s a streaming solution available that you may not have considered before. It’s easy to install and use, and delivers superb results. It also is pretty inexpensive. While it can get you streaming very quickly, it’s also got the flexibility and functionality to take your productions much further when you’re ready. From Camera to YouTube and Facebook
With the current situation there has never been so much requirement for video conferencing using Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or even Facetime. In the last couple of days, I’ve been asked by a couple of cameraman I know how they can use their fantastic kit for this purpose, as they are stuck at home for the next couple of months with thousands of pounds worth of cameras gathering dust. All these communication platforms running on PC or Mac can take an input from any webcam, but as good as modern webcams are, with their tiny sensors and limited microphones they can never compete with even the most basic professional camera systems.
Stream it live to anywhere from anywhere The simplest way to deliver content live to staff, students, customers and service users is via YouTube Live or Facebook Live. There are lots of ways to produce and stream professional looking video. Our technical team can advise you on the best solution for your needs – give us a call on 01457 851000.
Wirecast Restream used to simultaneously live stream to multiple sites Considered the “Great American Race,” the 61st annual 2019 Daytona 500 NASCAR stock car race energized record crowds at the Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, Florida, on Sunday, February 17, 2019.
A new version of Wirecast has just been released by Telestream with new features and significant improvements. In the powerful Wirecast Pro version the Web stream plugin has been completely rewritten to improve stability and performance, this is fantastic for remote video contributions although you are still better off using the Teradek Wirecast Plugin if using their Cube encoder/decoders, because they offer lower latency. The new plugin also lets you utilise IP-enabled Panasonic and Lumens PTZ camera streams, if they don’t have NDI.

o WIRE-16822 – Apple will soon drop support for KEXT audio drivers, which enables us to capture the system audio on Mac. For now, users that have the old Wirecast driver installed can continue to use that until Apple fully disables this system. New Wirecast users will have several options (outlined in this Knowledge Base article), including to manually install the old driver if they want to use this.
