How to stream quality video from home with cameras

#VISTEKCREATINGATHOME

Cameras streaming solution

A webcam will get you going, but If you want to up your streaming game, then setting up your home web or live production studio with a better camera is the way to go. Most of today’s cameras that can produce a clean image output at HD 1080 with a HDMI  or perhaps SDI output can be used and connected with an optional interface or “capture” device.

Since the majority of streaming is done at either 720P or 1080 to optimize streaming bandwidth (internet connectivity) most streaming production is done at 1080. You might also choose to do 4K for local reasons and then connect the results to your collaborative or streaming system in 1080.

Some cameras can also connect to your computer  via IP (LAN) to your computer eliminating the need for an external interface card.

if you have any tips, tricks or fun at home projects to share, please reach out to us on social.
