Have you ever wondered how we produce our live shows and webinars? Here at Telestream HQ, we have a fully equipped web studio that we use to produce webinars, tutorials, live shows, promotional videos and more! And as you can image…it takes A LOT of equipment to create all this content! Our fully-equipped live streaming studio has everything we need to produce high-quality and engaging live broadcasts. Take an inside look below at the tools inside our studio and learn tips to set-up your own successful streaming studio!
Below I’ve listed the tools we use to produce, stream and publish our live shows, webinars and more!
Camera: We use a BlackMagic URSA Mini Pro camera from BlackMagic
Capture Card: We run the BlackMagic URSA Mini Pro into a AJA IO 4K Capture Card
Microphone: We use a Isomax CountryMan and Associates microphone as well as a Blue Yeti Studio Microphone
Mixers: Both microphones run into a Mackie 12-Channel Mixer (located in the studio) which then goes into our Alto Live 1202 12-Channel Mixer (located in our production room). This unusual setup allows our hosts to make live audio adjustments from the Mackie mixer as needed – but still gives overall control to our producer in the production room. *Common practice would be to run the microphones directly into the channel mixer in the production room
Green Screen: We made our own green screen with a piece of green cloth, but they can also be purchased from popular stores like Amazon
Lights: We use several Fancier LED 500 lights mounted on a truss system to light our green screen. We also use a Neewer RL 18 inch Ring Light to light our host
Teleprompter: We use a Prompterpeople teleprompter to display our video output. This acts as a confidence monitor for our hosts and helps them keep track of what shot is live at any given moment
System: We run Wirecast on a MacPro which streams to Wowza. Wowza then redistributes the live stream to Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Periscope and records all at once.
Video Editing: We create and edit all our promotional videos and GIFs using ScreenFlow
