Broadcast Studio Help Needed

The other day I asked for help selecting items for my broadcast studio.
This is what I have so far. Am I on the right track?
What else do I need? Money is no object. All suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

1. Broadcast input

I think the ATEM is a HDMI switcher and you have a USB Camera.

You also have a single camera. The ATEM is cool, but are you looking to broadcast and then run/share from the laptop?

I would think you could find a used Sony5100 for MUCH better quality. IF cost is no object, you should be thinking of 2 Sony 6300,6400, 6600's type cameras - and be using the ATEM to switch from multiple angles.

Its good that you recognize the need for lighting, but I don't think you need the ring light unless its for travelling.

What are you looking to do?

2. Set up my own broadcast studio for classroom instruction.

I was thinking about the HDMI in case I want to add a camera or other input. I really don't know what I'm doing but I have one shot to get what I want and I'd rather go big than been too timid and discover that I need more than what I am equipped to handle.

5. Ok. This might keep you up all night...

Here are three great YouTube channels - if you have specific questions let me know.


Tom Buck - he is a teacher - great place to start.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRtDHXdrLyYZF6cY9bJhjlg

Good video on using an ATEM with a Rodecaster Pro




Sara Dietschy - she is mac focused and has some good videos on camera and office setup

Alpha Gaming

This is more about setting up streaming for gamers but great information - ok he is ALSO Dean Hellers kid, but overlook that.

He also has three kits, starter, medium and then advanced. I wouldn't buy any of them lock stock and barrel but will get you thinking

6. Thanks. I'll try but I'm not sure I'll make it through. I've already

been up since 4 AM so I will be fading fast. I may not even make it to debate time. I really appreciate all of this. Thanks for sharing it.
