Assessing your Location:
Positioning & Mounting the Camera:
Given your facility's dimensions, you may not have 100% coverage in your field of view "FOV".
A higher viewpoint allows viewers better depth perception of court activities.
A camera that does not pan is preferred in our setting.
Adding a Microphone:
The microphone does not need to be high quality. The general idea of this microphone is it's ability to pick up ambient noises of the space. We wanted to hear the Scoreboard, Whistles, and Gameplay noise.
A Blue Snowball is a good microphone choice with it's omni-directional audio pickup.
Our microphone is directly attached via USB to the Live Stream computer.
