You can stream directly to vCloud via a mobile device using the LiveAir Solo app. You can also use the app and a capture device and appropriate cabling to bring in a mobile device to Production Truck with a clean video signal.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Wired into Production Truck
Using the app you can have a clean video signal feed into Production Truck from a mobile device. Unlike with the traditional camera app or other applications, which would include interface icons on the screen. Below is an example of how this setup would function in regards to cabling.
With that connection setup, you will be able to select your capture card in Production Truck and will see the video feed signal.
With the video feed now visible within Production Truck, navigate back to the app in order to change the settings to get a clear video feed signal. Within the LiveAir Solo app, navigate to the Settings.
Under the settings menu, select Airplay/HDMI Output.
Finally, ensure that you have Program Stream selected. This ensures that areas of the menu and interface do not appear within Production Truck and on the broadcast itself.
You can now utilize the mobile device as if it were any other camera source.
Streaming Directly to vCloud
On your Create Broadcast page fill in all necessary information with an asterisk beside it. Verify your time and date are correctly inputted.
Once your title and time are filled in go to the Alternate Sources box, and change the Alt Sources drop down from None to RTMP. After this is done, simply go to the bottom of the page and click Create or click Save if you have already created this broadcast.
Navigate back to your Broadcasts area under Media. Then select the magnifying class icon for this particular broadcast.
Below the video player, you will see RTMP information. This is the information you will input into the LiveAir Solo application in order to stream.
This information is unique to each broadcast, so it will have to be input each time.
RTMP information is only valid one hour prior from the scheduled broadcast time, attempting to stream prior to this will result in an error.
Now navigate over to your device with the Airmix Solo application installed. Open the app and navigate to the settings.
Under the application Settings, navigate to Broadcasting Destinations.
Then select Manage Destinations
Finally, select Add Destination
From the list of options select RTMP(S)
You now have a custom RTMP endpoint selected. You will then copy-and-paste the information from vCloud into the LiveAir Solo application.
The Host field from vCloud will go into the URL field. Then the Stream Name from vCloud will go into the Stream field in the application.
You do not need to input a user or password into the app. Then go up and click Done in the upper right hand corner.
You can now stream via the app and it will directly stream to vCloud.
Once you are done streaming, it will take one hour from when the broadcast was stopped for it to be archived. You can navigate to vCloud and edit the broadcast, then change the Status to Archived to accelerate this process.
Using the Airmix Solo
Once you download the Airmix Solo app, you can alter the settings in order to make your broadcast the best possible.
Removing the Overlay
When you first download the app, there will be a tutorial overlay. This can be removed by swiping right and deselecting the tutorial overlay.
Adding your iOS Camera
Add your iOS camera by swiping right and selecting Add New Source, then select iOS camera from the options.
In order to Add audio, at the bottom of the app, swipe up, you can select On If Live and then drag the white audio bar to the right. You should see green audio levels moving up and down as the device picks up noise. You can hit the microphone button to mute and unmute instantly.
Adding and Controlling a Scoreboard.
You can add and control a simple scoreboard to your broadcasts via this app. This could be especially useful if streaming directly from the app itself.
To add a scoreboard, swipe left and select Add New Overlay. Then select the scoreboard option.
It will automatically open up the Scoreboard Editor menu, where you can customize team names, the scoreboards overall look, and of course change the score.
If you navigate away from this menu and need to get back to the Scoreboard editor. Simply swipe left and long hold your finger down on the Scoreboard overlay to the left. This will re-open the scoreboard editor.
