Zoom is Perfect for Streaming During Social Distancing

Zoom is fantastic for bringing in remote guests, multi camera presentations, and even the ability to stream. Thus it's a great tool for houses of worship, education, corporations, even government. This is communication made easy. No more wondering how to reach students, or fellow workers during social distancing.

Zoom can work directly with Wirecast as well.

  • Launch Zoom FIRST, then launch Wirecast
  • In Wirecast, enable your virtual camera.
  • Add a layer in Wirecast, and select "Share Screen" as your camera source. 
  • Select "Zoom Video Conferencing" Under Window Options. 
  • Use the other party on your Zoom Call as your virtual guest in Wirecast
