Live Streaming a Band: A Case Study

This is a practical example of semi-complex audio and video production. The remote video production of a live stream for a 4-person band requires the integration of both audio mixing and video switching. This setup highlights the seamless integration of PTZOptics Hive (for camera control), vMix (for video switching) and Presonus Metro (for audio mixing) to create a professional-quality broadcast.

  • Audio: Eight XLR inputs fed into the Presonus Studio Live III Audio Mixer, with remote adjustments made via Presonus Metro. This combination ensured pristine sound quality and allowed for precise control from a distance.
  • Video: Four PTZOptics cameras connected via NDI, managed through vMix, with remote control and color correction handled by PTZOptics Hive. The PoE-powered cameras reduced cable clutter and simplified the setup, maintaining consistent visual quality and ensuring each shot was perfectly framed.

This case study demonstrates the power of combining PTZOptics Hive and Presonus Metro for remote production, offering a flexible and efficient solution for live streaming.
