This is an awesome video courtesy of Patrick Murphy-Racey where he explains how he’s recording using multiple cameras for live streaming purposes at his church. I learned a lot watching this video and I highly recommend you check it out if your are interested in doing something like this, or just want to know how it can be done. Two thumbs way up!!
Info below the video on youtube courtesy of Patrick:
Many of us cannot attend church right now, se we’ve all had to learn about doing live streaming to the internet in order to attend religious services virtually while the pandemic continues. I had to help out my own church and I used each Sunday for the five Sundays leading up to Easter to perfect my own stream in order that families could still hear a message of hope during the Covid19 crisis. Each Sunday I tried to up my game, adding cameras, the ATEM Mini switcher from Blackmagic, and improving my audio feed. I worked completely by myself on this and my learning curve was steep. This video offers an overview of the equipment I used to capture Easter in 2020. I break down this video into the three cameras, how they all connect to the ATEM Mini, explain my audio, and how I feed one line of mono audio into the Sony XLRK2M to make things more simple and to be able to ride gains on the fly. I was a one man band. Hopefully this will help you understand how to move from a boring single camera stream into something more dynamic and with added production value, but on a budget… Please post your questions/comments below 🙂 Peace, and be safe out there!!!! pm-r 🙂
