Multi-camera streaming can not only make your content more exciting and improve stream quality, but it can also save you time! You can instantly switch from speaking to the camera to showing what you are working on β€” no editing required. Having an extra camera allows you to switch feeds in real-time. Forget about hours of editing your VODs, inserting scenes, etc.!

In this article, we will cover:

βš™οΈ Requirements

  • Extra camera feature is available on any of our plans, including the basic tier.

  • A second camera is required. You can’t select an already active camera as an extra camera.

  • Please ensure you have enough CPU and bandwidth to handle the extra camera's additional encoding and network load.

  • Each participant can have up to 2 extra cameras, which makes 3 cameras in total.

  • The extra camera has video-only, no audio. Please keep your main camera on-air to get heard.
