With COVID19 still ravaging the United States, live-streaming video has become the “go-to” way to communicate. Remote productions are an essential part of keeping business going. That said, there are a lot of ways to stream content to your viewers; let’s talk about the LiveU Solo.
To get started, you’ll need to log into the LiveU Solo portal (f11 Rentals has an account setup so you won’t need to create your own account). The portal is where you can select which LiveU device you want to use. You can also select which service you want to stream to in the portal (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).
So, you have your streaming destination chosen, what next? You now need to connect your camera to the HDMI or SDI input, and power up the Solo. The Solo holds its power charge for at minimum, 2 hours, but it’s best to plug in when possible. Then, connect to either LAN, Wi-Fi, one or two cellular modems, or, multiple of these; the more you connect, the more reliable your feed will be.
Okay, we chose our streaming destination in the portal, powered on and connected our camera, and we’re connected to the internet… next is to confirm that our setting/frame rates, etc. all match in the LiveU itself. Once all that is good, it’s time to go live!
There you have it, it’s that simple. Even for people who aren’t “tech savvy” (my hand is up), it’s very straight forward and user friendly. So, now, there’s no reason you can’t bring Las Vegas to the rest of the world, but keep everyone safe with social distancing. For your next Las Vegas video production that needs to be seen near and far, reach out and we’ll get you everything you need!
P.S. LiveU’s FAQ page is pretty helpful.
