As the global pandemic forces social isolation, educators are scrambling to apply available technology to online instruction to bring the classroom to their students. Audio educators face additional challenges as lecture content and interaction with students needs to be accompanied by high-quality audio playback and real-time demonstration of tools and techniques.
Jill Courtney (AES Nashville Section executive committee member, doctoral student in Instructional Design Leadership at Franklin University, former college audio instructor and teacher in performance arts) and Michael Hanson (AES Nashville Section Chair, veteran audio engineer and assistant professor of audio production at Middle Tennessee State University) are among the educators challenged to find effective instruction methodology as their schools transition to online education as they enter quarantine.
As more and more organizations are finding the need to communicate remotely, streaming video has turned into an essential tool to stay connected with students, congregants, and employees. The good news is that streaming technology is user-friendly, and you may already have much of the equipment you need for a perfectly capable streaming system. If you don’t, our friends at Full Compass have put together a variety of streaming packages to meet the needs of venues of all sizes.
The information provided below by Full Compass goes over the basics of streaming for those who are brand new to setting up a video stream, before getting into some more intermediate and high-level configurations.
So… Video Streaming 101
- Get a video camera. Already have one? Great!
- Get an encoder. That’s the one thing you probably don’t have. This is basically a box that sends your video signal out to the world.
- Hook your camera into your encoder with an HDMI or SDI cable (depending on your camera), follow the simple setup prompts, and stream over YouTube or your Facebook page or any other streaming service.
