One of the most common live-streaming questions people have when getting started is “what do I need?” Often the chorus of “just use your phone” drowns out the advice from people who know the limitations of that advice. In most circumstances, a single phone in the back of the sanctuary isn’t going to do as well as a camcorder connected to an encoder.

Normally, the steps from a single phone to a multi-camera live-stream, with graphics, are like a maze. You can go a long way down a single path only to find that you’ve hit a dead-end and have to turn around and start over again.

Not so with the SlingStudio Multi-Camera Live Streaming Platform from the folks at Dish Network. Its major strength is that it eliminates the dead ends.

With just the SlingStudio Hub and a smartphone, you have a capable live-streaming system. While it’s pricier than just using your phone, even without adding more phones or other cameras you immediately have more capabilities. You can add in pre-recorded videos or static graphics without adding a connected computer.

Churches - Forward - Live-stream

Add in another smartphone and you’ve got a Multicam system which can switch seamlessly, adding both interest and professionalism to the stream.

Next, add in some camcorders, perhaps from the Canon Vixia line connected to a SlingStudio CameraLink. Add up to 10 cameras using one of these methods, but keep in mind that the SlingStudio Console app can only monitor four at a time.

Whether you have a basic system or a more complex one, setup is pretty simple, and because it’s wireless, fast.
