About the webinar
In this 70 minute webinar presented by Dean Shaw, the Digital Culture Network’s Tech Champion for Digital Content, you will learn how to get the most out of the live streaming experience for both you and your audience.
We now know that the fastest way to go live is to use the equipment you already have – like your mobile phone and its built-in audio – but simply pressing “go live” on your smartphone isn’t always the best way to reach your audience and capture their attention. In this webinar, we look at consumer and prosumer video and audio equipment and how you can put it all together to be ready to hit record and broadcast live using free software sites such as Facebook & YouTube. The session is rounded off by a Q+A session where Dean answers technical questions live.
You will learn
- The best equipment options – Video cameras, audio equipment and encoders
- The best live streaming accessories and software
- How to go live to Facebook & YouTube
