Getting Started

All you need to get started is a video source (a camera or video switcher), a internet connection, and a RTMP encoder.

The camera will capture the video source of your event and then connect to your encoder, the RTMP encoder encodes the information from the video source and transmits (streams) the video over the internet via RTMP to your Hire A Broadcast event.

To get started with streaming to your Hire A Broadcast event you should first make sure you have a source (camera, screen capture, video switcher, etc.) and an encoder that is able to output via RTMP with H.264 or x264 video. You should also make sure you have a stable internet connection with at least 2-3 times your RTMP video bitrate total as a sustained upload speed.
