What do you need to live stream a keep fit session, yoga or music class?

We’re all seeing it, live streams from people all over the world doing this to stay active, teach, keeping yourself busy and you’re thinking to yourself “I can do this”.

So, your first reaction would be to point your phone or your laptop at yourself and hit the ‘go live’ button. WAIT! There are so many ways you can do this better, and we’ll help you out.

Firstly, position your phone or laptop properly.
Put your phone on a proper stand or if you’re using a laptop, raise it up using a laptop stand which will help you adjust the height and angle. Letting you see what you’re sending out and position the camera better.
Take a look at our laptop stands here.

Second, sound good!
There’s nothing worse than ‘tinny’, distant sound. Also, if you’re playing music, you want to make sure you can be heard clearly with the tracks in the background.

There are several options for you:
If you’re using a phone, it’s worth investing in a mic designed for use with a mobile device. Shure makes an excellent mobile kit which includes a high quality mic with tripod and even a phone holder.

The MV88+ comes with a high quality mic which can be connected via lighting or micro USB to most mobile phones. This will give you targeted sound pickup and great clarity. The stand can be used to hold just the mic or both the mic and phone, allowing you to get a stable picture with your improved sound,

When folded, the stand acts as a handle to provide more stable handheld recording or live streaming.

If you plan to be further away from the phone, Rode do a fantastic wireless option for mobiles and cameras which is now used by vloggers all over the web.

The Rode Wireless Go has a battery operated receiver which will connect to your laptop, camera or phone (with the right adaptor).
The transmitter has a built in mic which you can just clip on to yourself and you’re good to go.
Both parts have built in, rechargeable batteries
