Improve the quality of your live stream

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a video presence and a solid live stream. There’s a lot you can do by improving your skills without spending a dollar, but now we’d like to show you how you can up your game by upgrading your gear. Because if you’re going to invest, you’ll want a good return on that investment.

1. Add more cameras.

Watching an entire service through a single camera shot can get very boring. It’s WAY better than nothing, but pay attention to how often a camera angle changes next time you’re watching a movie or TV. Changing camera angles grabs the viewers attention, and gives you the opportunity to create dramatic effects with different perspectives.

2. Mix your broadcast audio separately.

When you’re doing your live audio mix, it’s catered for elements of the room, including speaker placement, acoustics, range, and so forth. Many of those elements are eliminated when you broadcast, and if you really want a mix that’s going to sound good in someone’s home, you’re better off doing it separately.

3. No camera can fix bad lighting.

Upgrading camera is often a go-to for improving the way your shot looks, and sometimes it’s the right solution. More often than not, though, it’s lighting. You can get the best camera and lenses Hollywood has to offer, and your shot still won’t look right without effective lighting. On the contrary, a basic camera can capture a pretty good shot if the lighting is right. Upgrading lights also means your service is going to look better in person.
