Streaming - The "New Normal"

Overcoming social distance to reach your audience

As the world faces difficult times that keep us physically isolated from each other, businesses, schools, organisations and congregations are increasingly relying on video and audio streaming to deliver services and reach their audience.

Whether you’re setting up your streaming capabilities from scratch, looking to upgrade a component of your existing system or looking for a full-service crew to take care of everything, Lemac has the equipment and experience to help.


What do I need to start streaming live content quickly?

One camera → Streaming Encoder → Internet Connection

Whether you’re streaming to Facebook Live, Youtube, Livestream, Twitch or any other platform, a basic streaming setup consists fundamentally of 3 elements - a camera, a streaming encoder and an internet connection.

Once you have your camera set up, you’ll need to feed the video image to a streaming encoder. Many standalone streaming encoders will allow you to input your camera’s feed directly via HDMI or SDI and will then encode and send that vision direct to your streaming platform. Another option is to convert your camera’s video signal to an interface such as USB or Thunderbolt, using a converter. This USB or Thunderbolt signal can then be sent to your computer, which with the help of dedicated software, acts as a streaming encoder, to feed the stream to your chosen platform.

The simplest solution of all, is to use an all-in-one standalone system like the Livestream Mevo camera, which records, encodes and broadcasts its own stream, direct to your platform.

When setting up any video system, choosing the right combination of products can greatly increase the quality of your final product and avoid wasting time, money and energy troubleshooting issues. When it comes to streaming, this has never been more true!

If you’re in any doubt as to what you require or you want to build a system around an existing piece of gear, contact us and one of our streaming experts will be happy to guide you through the decision making process.

Basic setups are perfect for:

  • Single camera streaming of less than 3 people
  • Businesses updates & announcements
  • Remote interviews
  • eSports and Vlogging

Advanced Streaming Setups

Multiple Vision/Audio Sources → Mixer with Graphics → Encoder → Streaming Platform

If you're a larger organisation or you're running a live event, you'll need to combine multiple vision and audio sources from a variety of cameras, mics, and online feeds in to a single polished stream for broadcasting to your audience.

For this, you'll need a more advanced setup. The addition of a vision mixer into your workflow will allow you to switch between multiple vision and audio sources, while adding transition effects, titles and graphics to lift your production value and create a professional looking broadcast. The final "mixed" feed is then encoded - either by the mixer itself or a separate encoder - and streamed to your audience via your chosen platform.

With the right system and a little training, just a handful of operators can run a large scale streaming broadcast with world-class production values.

Advanced setups suit larger scale productions such as:

  • Church Services
  • Council meetings
  • Conferences & AGMs
  • Performances and live events

What is NDI? Do I need it?

NDI Equipped Cameras/Sources → Local Area Network → NDI Compatible Mixer/Encoder → Streaming Platform

NDI (Network Device Interface) is an open protocol developed by NewTek to enable video compatible products to share video across a local area network.

The NDI protocol allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in realtime. The NDI protocol can benefit any network-connected video device, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices.  

If you want to build a sophisticated, future-proof video streaming pipeline, using NDI over your existing network infrastructure, Lemac can help.

NDI is great if you need to:

  • Re-purpose existing LAN networks for video production
  • Access computers and mobile devices as sources without the need for video converters
  • Use the same sources for multiple streams
  • Bi-directional for tally, comms, control, etc
