What media platforms are you targeting for the live stream: YouTube, Facebook, private websites? Are you streaming to one or multiple platforms? This is important because if streaming to multiple platforms, you’ll need either an upgraded software program package or two computers working in parallel to handle the processing speed requirements. Live streaming programs use a ton of computer processing and memory which slows computer performance unless equipped with a costly Intel Core i9 processor. Alternatively, there are monthly subscriptions to services like Restream making this possible with just a single computer running Intel Core i5 or higher.
What is the distance between the camera and the intended shots? You will need to decide the best zoom option for your application: 10x, 12x, 20x, or 30x. Based on this information, check our zoom calculator to help you decide.
What about control? PTZ cameras require motorized control of the Pan, Tilt, and Zoom functions. Popular control options include Joystick Controllers, IR Remotes, Control Programs, and Internal Web Interfaces.
Which type of connection is best for your application or environment? USB and HDMI are adequate for short distance runs while SDI cabling is great for runs up to 328 feet. LAN connections can also be utilized with streaming protocols such as NDI and RTSP.
Lastly, how will this stream be introduced to the web? Most BZBGEAR PTZ cameras offer the ability to stream from the camera itself when connected to the LAN. Another option is to use a dedicated Streaming Device like the BG-HAVS using a web interface for configuring and streaming to media platforms. The most common method is choosing a Live Streaming Software platform like vMix, OBS Studio, Wirecast, Xsplit, or ProPresenter.
Some other equipment that may or may not be required are HDMI and USB extenders over Cat5/6 cabling. These are used when cameras are too far away exceeding the distance limitation of the cable. An example would be the BG-EXH-70C HDMI extenders capable of going up to 20 feet in distance. USB 2.0 extenders are fairly common while USB 3.0 extenders are not; if you can find one, it will be upwards of $1000. The other options for extending signals are known as Active Cables using Fiber Optics for signal transmissions. Active HDMI cables like the BG-CAB-HA50 can go up to 50 meters / 164 feet without latency. While the BG-CAB-U3A20 USB 3.0 cable can go 20 meters / 66 feet transmitting data up to 5 Gbps for those longer runs.
Another technology growing in popularity that works well for larger venues is AV over IP. These are smaller devices living on the Local Area Network for the purpose of transmitting Audio, Video, and Control signals from sources to displays without the need for additional AV cabling. The only cabling needed is a CAT5/6 cable which also provides power. See our AVoIP resource page for more information.
