Live Streaming with a smartphone...can it be done?
In this episode we unveil our new logo. Talk a bit about the artist (Celestia Ward) who drew us and where you can find her.
We also delve into the myth that you can't/shouldn't use your iPhone as a webcam. With the superior quality of the cameras on our iPhones these days there must be a way to ditch the integrated webcam and use one that excellent quality and is already at hand...literally!
Luckily, there is a fantastic solution available from elgato. Yes, the same people that have brought us a multitude of incredibly useful Live Streaming products have done it again!
Not only can you use your iPhone as a webcam but you can also use it for multi-camera shots. Say, for instance you want to show yourself drawing a sketch live, with EPOCCAM and your iPhone you now have a second camera that you can place anywhere! Above, looking down. On an in studio guest. anywhere you can take your phone! AND...you don't have to be tethered. It can be used via wifi or usb!
