Live Streaming Equipment

Below are the results of an equipment survey sent to our clients in February of 2018.


Several clients use the MEVO Camera

The MEVO is the most straightforward and cost-effective option for streaming live events. It allows for the creation of multiple camera angles that you can switch between during your broadcast for a higher-quality video and requires only a paired device with the MEVO app installed in order to stream directly to YouTube.

Other cameras used include:

  • Sony and Panasonic PTZ
  • REACH-HD830
  • Canon Vixia HF R700


Several Clients Use the MEVO Encoder

The MEVO app is free to download on any Android or iOs device. The majority of customers using the MEVO camera & app solution have an iPad with the MEVO app installed for their live streams.

Other encoders used include:

  • Cablecast Live
  • Reach Bee 8
  • Nicecast
  • Wirecast
  • Epiphan Webcaster

Audio Mixers

Open.Media clients use a variety of audio mixers depending on their budgets and their A/V capabilities. Some of the options reported are listed below:

  • Lectrosonics SPN1624 Aspen
  • Behringer
  • Shure SCM810
  • Biamp E17934
  • Crest AM411


The majority of our clients (particularly in smaller communities) do not use switchers. Those that do typically prefer one of the Broadcast Pix options.
