What is a live stream?
Firstly, you should know some of the basic ins and outs of live streaming. It is much like live television, with the main difference being that you need the internet in order to stream from a recording device and a hosting platform such as Twitch, YouTube and Dacast.
Social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter offer live streaming services to followers and friends, with Skype and Zoom also providing the resources to livestream to wide remote audiences.
Live stream services often involve single-camera and multi-camera broadcasts, which generally cover any form of live event you’re looking to host, be it sport, award shows or musical events.
Single-camera live - This is common for lower league and amateur team sports such as football and rugby. A single-camera is set up at pitch side and covers the entire game from one angle.
Multi-camera OB - This type of live coverage is great when a single camera can’t cover all aspects of the game. This might be used for motorsport or other track sports where multiple angles are important.
