My younger daughter started middle school this year and I perhaps foolishly offered to live stream her school's concerts on YouTube, with only a couple of days to get things set up for the winter one, which is over already. Here's the current set up. The school has a thriving music department, with about 400 students doing strings or band. However, they are lacking in resources, so the concert takes place in the school gym. The school can't (or won't) even pay for acoustic panels to cut down on the reverb you get in gyms. Anyway, that concert is over, and although the video was ok, if still not great, the audio is muddied and clipped even with lowered input level, and didn't do justice to the performers - here's the recording (music starts at about 25minutes): Given the limited time I used a Logitech c920 webcam. I borrowed an external mic but couldn't get it to work with either my Mac or a borrowed PC so had to use the webcam's internal mic, but with the odious Logitech RightSound noise cancelling turned off. For the Spring concert, I will probably have access to an audio mixer and multiple mics, although that will be handled by another parent. So, given this, and with a preference for using my MacBook Pro, are there any experts or gifted amateurs here who have done something similar? What would you use? Preferably a 1080p camera (or two or three to ensure full visual coverage if cheap enough)? How far from the streaming computer can they be? How to get audio into the Mac (RCA to USB?). Software - eg. Wirecast vs Hangouts? Edit: by the way, iPhone streaming is not an option. There are about 800 parents with smart phones, wifi gets saturated quickly, and the cellular coverage is mediocre at best. I would like to set up one or more cameras in fixed locations.
