HOW TO STREAM TO FACEBOOK LIVE
Streaming to Facebook Live is definitely a hot topic. Most everyone has a Facebook account, and companies are using Facebook to reach and interact with their customers. In 2016, Facebook launched their Facebook Live streaming platform, giving users a new method of engaging audiences and streaming live events to their Facebook followers. Roland’s VR Series A/V switchers are streaming-ready, making it easy for you to jump in and create pro-quality real-time content for Facebook Live. The all-in-one VR series streamlines your workflow, reduces setup time, and provides a portable live production switcher for streaming or recording.
The VR series includes the Roland VR-50HD, which is a multi-format HD switcher, and the the Roland VR-4HD, which is the newest model. The VR-4HD is a full 1080p HD switcher with an 18-channel audio mixer, built-in effects, preview monitor with touchscreen, and most importantly, a super-fast USB 3.0 output for connecting audio and video to a Mac or Windows computer to stream to Facebook Live. This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to stream to Facebook Live using the VR-4HD, including how to configure settings for the encoding software and Facebook Live.
We recommend four components for streaming to Facebook Live. The central component is the Roland VR-4HD, which mixes your camera and video sources, and your microphone and audio sources. It includes live production tools with effects that include Chromakey, Lumi-Key, Split Screen, and Picture-in-Picture, plus your standard mix and wipe patterns. We recommend using a Windows or Mac software encoder to encode audio and video signals from the VR-4HD and send to Facebook Live. You will also need an Internet connection with a reasonably fast upload speed, and a Facebook account with administration privileges so you can schedule and stream your live events.
