Hi Everyone, I’m fairly new to live streaming. I’m the expert at my church since Covid lockdown in Melbourne Australia. We went from 200-400 people services 3 times on Sunday to lets live stream in 5 days. There I’m using a BlackMagic TV Studio HD, some cheap panasonic camcorders (all I could get at the time quickly) and a mini recorder to send it to a Mac for live streaming via Vimeo Livestream studio.
Its been going so well we have since ordered some new PTZ cameras and an Atem Mini Pro as we expect to be live streaming for quite some time.
However I’ve been asked by my kids Cricket club to help them work out a small setup to live stream some matches, as they have very few people who can turn up at the venue (which is a large oval outside in case you aren’t failure with Cricket).
So my biggest issue I’m looking for advice on is remote camera’s. I’d like to setup a 2-4 camera setup, but 2 of the cameras will be in the middle of the fields at the stumps. Cabling them is basically a non starter (potentially something simple like Ethernet cable could work as its cheap enough to throw away if it gets destroyed by game play).
Idealy go pro’s would work due to the wide field of view. But I’ve yet to find a good way to connect multiple go pro’s to any live stream setup over wifi easily.
Any recommendations or suggestions to look at?
(budget is an issue, but there’s no point unless we can do it well enough to see the game play)
