Shawn Tempesta’s Mix 94.1 Show
RADIO STATION SUCCESS ON FACEBOOK LIVE
Radio is an amazing medium. “Truly we reach so many people,” says Shawn Tempesta, the host of Mix 94.1’s afternoon show. Tempesta explains, in his studio tour video available on YouTube that “the one problem is… in a digital world, there is no such thing as viral audio.” Motivated to grow his show’s presence online, Tempesta designed a live streaming studio using (4) four PTZOptics NDI cameras. (3) Three PTZOptics 12X-ZCam cameras are used to produce high quality close up shots of each host and (1) one PTZOptics 12X-NDI PTZ camera is used to capture additional shots of the entire studio.

NDI HX Camera for Radio
Shawn has a setup that rivals traditional television. The beauty is that Shawn was able to purchase the entire system himself. This case study shows what one creative person can do on a budget to help promote their radio show. As you can see above each camera is only connected via a single Ethernet cable. Shawn sets up his streaming system every day because he owns it. Therefore each camera needed to be easy to set up and operate.

LIVE STREAMING ROCKS AM RADIO
Learn how this radio station used live streaming WCHE 1520 AM Radio recently hosted a radio broadcast which included a live stream to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn during a sponsored AM radio hour. The radio station used three live streaming cameras during the production. The station was able to take a simple audio output from their existing audio mixer and convert that to USB for use with vMix live streaming software.
The station used a PTZOptics 12X-SDI camera to capture multiple views of guests inside their studio. The main host had a 12X-ZCam camera with a fixed view of the main interview microphone. Finally, the third camera was a wide-angle ZCam-VL camera used to show the entire radio studio during commercial breaks.
This system used a simple NDI (IP Video) networking setup. All of our cameras were powered over ethernet and our video was available via both SDI and NDI. The in-studio system received audio from the radio stations board into a Focusrite USB audio interface used with the vMix PC Software. This stream was then sent to EasyLive via an RTMP stream. The stream was switched between the vMix system and the LiveU IRL feed during commercial breaks.
