As we continue to stay home to keep everyone safe, content creators who both live stream and produce pre-recorded YouTube videos want to use the better image quality to keep the look and feel of their videos in a live stream setting. Panasonic offer a wide range of cameras and camcorders suitable for various situations.
Cameras with Direct Streaming
Panasonic’s Semi Pro Camcorders are compatible with standard streaming protocols which enable live streaming to the internet via a router or wireless network. They also offer IP connection via RTSP and no other hardware is required! These cameras can run continuously with constant power using the AC adaptors included in the box and require minimal set up.
Streaming with a Capture Device
Camcorders offer a very easy starting point for someone looking to start streaming as they offer better image quality, sharpness and white balance control than webcams. Streamers prefer mirrorless as they offer the highest image quality, ability to choose different lenses, picture profile customisation for creating a unique look which separates them from others. Streaming with a Capture Device.
Capture devices transfer a single display (usually over HDMI input) into a live video feed that can be broadcast or recorded. There are many of these available including products from Elgato, Magewell, AJA and Avermedia. Streaming applications can then take that video feed and broadcast it live. Below are some examples of popular capture cards.
