Streaming Audio and Video
With the current pandemic restrictions around the world, people are required to stay in their homes and seek alternative promotion and sharing methods to live gigs and festivals for their music. People are streaming from their homes and home studios in audio and video.
It is counterproductive for DJ´s and Artists to be streaming such poor audio and video quality while their fans are never more available to have a look and listen.
The most common audio issues are: Audio that is too quiet (hard to hear at normal device volume levels), Audio that is too loud (causing clipping or distortion), Vocal microphones or music instruments that can’t be heard, Audio that cuts in and out, Buzz or hum on the audio feed
DMT-FM held a live streaming event called BioHazarad ( https://dmt-fm.com/bio-hazard-psytrance-live-streaming-event/ )
with Artists from around the world and streamed the audio in 192k ACC and 320k HD MP3
We also added Visuals to Our twitch stream check it out – https://www.twitch.tv/dmt_fm_psytrance_radio
DMT-FM offers 100% quality, rather than “it will do” attitude.
Remember you are Promoting your Brand!
For our BioHazard event we chose not to stream video to avoid problems with quality and audio sync etc..
If every performer involved had super-fast internet and HD Cameras it would not have been an issue, or if we all had been in the same studio it would have been a lot easier too. Why promote your skills and products with substandard audio and video quality?
Good audio quality is essential for streaming: A clean audio feed from a mixer through a limiter direct into your PC or MAC.
Then you need to broadcast thru a streaming source, ICEcast Server or Shoutcast or Twitch as a quality streamer
Facebook Live is not Hi-quality unless you pay them for the service and you are limited to 2 hours!
Twitch is a Full Hd Video and Full HD Audio and with no time limit. https://www.twitch.tv/dmt_fm_psytrance_radio
You could use your mobile phone or webcam, but if you want quality video,1980 x1080P 60 FPS is a good the starting point for smooth clear video.
Ex: Logiitech C920 really is a good starting point
Check out the quality diference betwenn 30 PFS and 60 FPS
Or a DSLR Camera with interface Card
A good choice would be a Full 4K Camera at 60 plus FPS
Next you have to take your audio and video and sync them back together to give you a HIghRes Quality Stream
This can be done with software with Chromakey overlays and effects ..then stream it live in HD..
