If you are not live streaming yet, this may be a good time and place to get started. It’s also a great to consider OBS (Open Broadcast Software).

OBS has been around for a long time. There are a large variety of broadcasters using it. Primarily because it’s free, but also because it’s time tested and approved. With a lot of add-ons available.

It doesn’t have the prettiest interface, but once things are set up there’s A LOT you can do with it.

It can be as simple as pressing start and stop – that’s it. Or if you want to add some production value to your broadcast, OBS will help you with that as well!

The links below will show you how to take a step beyond just starting and stopping your camera’s video signal by adding transitions between different sources to give it a more produced and professional feel.

We hope this information helps you “up your broadcasting game.”
