I have just started out live streaming events. Mainly for a new organisation that has just set up. I have been useing Ustream and an iPad mini and this has been ok...until I got an email asking me to film a big event.
It is not the size of the event that is worrying me, it is the equipment I will need. I want a multi camera system that will link to an encoder that will then stream to Youtube where most of my viewers will be. I need to know what I will need and how much a system will likely to cost. I dont need 4K, but 720 would be nice. My goal is to get out a clear image of what is happening with the use of 3 or 4 cameras. I dont have a set budget, but I dont want to spend thousands on what may be a one off event. This will be a make a break event so a little pressure.
This will be a large venue and I want to capture as much as possible. Any help is appriciated
