In this lesson we'll cover:
Now that you added your destinations and created your first broadcast, let's dive into the Studio.
If you're using the free plan included with your Hopin license, access the studio via the Hopin platform by going to Stages and clicking "Backstage".
To enter the broadcast studio with your Streamyard business plan, click "Enter Studio" in your previously created broadcast.
Then, allow your browser to use your mic and camera and type your name.
You're now ready to enter the studio.
Once in the studio, you can use these options for turning on and off your mic or camera.
In the share button you'll find options for sharing your screen or a pre-recorded video file from your computer. You can also share slides from Google Drive or a different slides file.
You now have the option to use more than one camera in your stream to show a different camera angle or a behind the scenes, your audience will love it!
To do this, add the extra camera here.
You can also invite more guests backstage, by copying this link and sharing it with your speakers.To bring someone on screen, simply click Add to stream. You can have up to 15 people backstage and 10 people on the screen.
Choose between these layouts to show your different media feeds in the way that best fits your content.
If you'd like to add a background in a solo layout, go to settings > layout and check this box. Adding a background to your solo Stream helps you keep your broadcasts on brand and more professional looking.
Let's go back to settings and explore the options further.
In General, you'll be able to select your stream quality. If your viewers don't have a solid internet connection, select 720p.
If you are planning to edit your stream later, check this box to record a separate audio file for each guest. Your editor will thank you!
In the camera settings, select your camera and your resolution. We recommend you to choose the same resolution you selected for your stream.
Going over to the audio settings, you can select your microphone and speakers. You'll see that the Echo cancellation box is checked. This helps you make sure that if you are playing a guest through a speaker, that audio signal is not echoing in the stream. Keep this box checked unless you're using headphones.
If you uncheck it, you'll get the option to have stereo audio in case you're doing a music stream and you need that involving audio experience.
In the next setting, you'll be able to fade your background, select a virtual background or upload your own. You can also select this box if you’re using a well lit green screen for the highest quality virtual background. Use this feature as a branding opportunity or to hide a not so flattering office.
In the Business Plan, you'll see the Hot Keys feature. Here, you can set up shortcuts to quickly perform some of the most common actions during the live stream, such as muting yourself or sharing your screen. This feature will make your live streams run more smoothly and give you peace of mind.
Lastly, you have the guest settings. Uncheck this box if you don't want your guests to see viewer comments. This will help them avoid distractions. And if you'd like to have the ability to ban bad-behaved guests, you'll need to ask for authentication by checking this box.
And that's all for now! See you in the next video to learn about the side tab options. // Let's now have a look into the side tab options.
