Live Streaming

With the current COVID-19 Epidemic, it is not safe to host a meeting, conference or concert.
Using Skype or Zoom meeting software as an alternative will work, but webcams are not great quality, and the audio quality suffers too.
Our technical solution is a Canon DSLR camera, with a Zoom Field mixer, streamed on a I7 laptop to one of the following platforms:
facebook live
vimeo

The technical operator lives on an isolated farm in the rural Karoo, and drives through to Cape Town alone, in a private vehicle.
The technical operator has all the appropriate PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) like masks and gloves.
The only point of contact is the placement of the lapel microphone that clips onto any piece of clothing.
All equipment is surgically cleaned with alcohol swabs after every broadcast.
