Two Wireless Webcams for Live Streams

In Resources by DougLeave a Comment

In my daily work, I do a lot of live streaming, Skype and Google Hangouts. Creating interesting camera angles with webcams has always been a challenge. The straight on, built-in webcam common in laptops and mobile devices presents all sorts of issues: boring camera angles; tethered to the laptop/device; odd light & shadows. Moving the camera off of the device solves a lot of problems and opens up new opportunities. Within two weeks of one another, two new camera options have emerged.

First, we get the WiFi BacPac and iOS app for GoPro Hero2 Cameras. Now comes the Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam. 1080p would have been nice, but 720p gets the job done.

The real test will be Wirecast. If these cameras work natively with Wirecast Pro, they could be game-changers for low-end live streams.
