Streaming Video Equipment Recommendations

This equipment list can be reduced by $199.00, if you are willing to learn how to use OSB. (Open Broadcaster Software). Open stands for “free”. OSB is High performance real time video/audio capturing and mixing. Create scenes made up of multiple sources including window captures, images, text, browser windows, webcams, capture cards and more. I do not use this software, but they seem to have a very nice forum when you should be able to ask for help. This would bring your total cost to around $533.98.

Panasonic HC-V770 Video Camera. $397.99. By pairing the HC-V770 Full HD Camcorder from Panasonic with your smart phone you can record two camera angles at once. A main image from the HC-V770’s sensor in full HD and a secondary picture-in-picture image from your phone’s camera. But the HC-V770 works by itself, too. It features a 20x optical zoom lens with a 29.5 to 612mm equivalent focal length – giving you a wide angle when zoomed out, and a substantial amount of telephoto when zoomed in. Able to record slow-motion in Full HD at up to 120 fps, it can also perform in-camera interpolation to bring the final frame rate up to 240 fps.
