Live streaming the Sunday sermon this week with Shogun
Thu 26, 03 2020
With live-streaming soaring, the class-leading Shogun 7 HDR monitor-recorder-switcher is in high demand. It’s easy-to-use live switching and multi-channel ISO recording function make it quick and easy to deploy into settings from houses of worship to colleges, to vloggers front rooms. It offers a no stress setup to create live multi-camera content in no time at all.
This weekend saw churches turning to live streaming to continue serving their congregations during lockdowns. One London church was able to stream their Sunday service direct to YouTube with the help of the Shogun 7. Like many British churches they had no existing live-streaming infrastructure so needed a simple solution that could be set up quickly by the more technical members of the congregation. Using borrowed older Sony FS700 cameras connected to the Atomos Shogun 7 monitor-recorder-switcher they were able to set up and operate a whole multi-camera system with minimal setup, all at a safe distance.
How it works:
The hardware setup is straightforward. Up to 4 SDI sources must all be set to the same frame rate and resolution (max. 1080p60). The resulting program feed can be fed into a wide range of streaming devices – perfect for YouTube, Facebook and other popular social media. Thanks to its SDI output, it can also be fed directly into a broadcast system if required. The Shogun 7 can do all of this running off batteries if mains power is not available.
Each switch is recorded at the same time in a Final Cut Pro X XML metadata file, which can be imported into Apple Final Cut Pro X or other NLEs* immediately after the event and used to recreate the entire program complete with switches. Because this is metadata, you can even assign the transition type that Final Cut Pro X uses, choosing between a hard cut, or a cross fade with a specific duration.
*may require third party software like XtoCC from Intelligent Assistance.
