Live Streaming Equipment

Live Streaming Equipment has become very popular as people share information and events over the web as they happen. In order to stream video content to an online platform you need a streaming device. Cam-A-Lot Rentals offers two streaming device options which are available for hire.

These are the Blackmagic Web Presenter and the Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini Pro HDMI Live Stream Switcher. These two devices work to bridge your camera and the online platform of your choice. They each do it slightly differently, so this post is to help you match the correct Live Streaming Equipment to your needs.

The Live Streaming Equipment mentioned in this post can be hired from Cam-A-Lot Rentals.

Cam-A-Lot Rentals does not supply the data or method of connection to the web services. You will need to ensure that sufficient data and speed is available at your production location. It is recommended to have a dedicated 10mbs line for streaming video. It is also important that you familiarise yourself with the web platform you intend to use as we cannot offer support for those services as they are beyond our control.
