Multi-camera live streaming uses multiple cameras to capture dynamic, engaging content for online audiences.

Have you ever watched a video and wondered, “I wish I could see a better camera angle”? Those are the typical pains we experience when watching videos that are broadcasted using a single-view camera.

Multi-camera live streaming isn’t new; most live streamers have already integrated multi-camera into their broadcast using OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) settings. OBS allows you to add and remove any input source at will. For example, if you have 2 or more cameras, you can simply plug them into your computer, turn them on, and register them as a video capture input source in your OBS.

However, all these sources will be compiled into a single screen or will need to be controlled by a stream production to switch between them. By doing so, the viewers can still not choose which camera angle they would really wish to view.

This is how ViuLive can enhance your live streaming experience.

Dedicated multi-camera Live Streaming support

ViuLive is an app with dedicated multi-camera support that allows you to broadcast from multiple cameras without the need to use any encoder and mixer software.

If you have a bunch of cameras lying around, which natively support RTMP protocol, you can use them to broadcast to ViuLive directly. Pretty handy, right?

The ViuLive app also natively supports multi-view display. It means you can watch all the output simultaneously or select a single or more screens you wish to watch at a given time. The beauty of this is it gives you (yes, you!) the power to choose whichever camera angle gives you the best viewing experience.

If you’re a broadcaster, ViuLive is the perfect app that will bring your live stream to the next level.

Forget huge production costs, additional gadgets like the stream deck, or a stream producer when you can give your audience the freedom to choose the camera shot angle they wish to see.

Rather than worrying and frantically switching between cameras, you can just focus on interacting with your audience and providing them with the best quality content. What’s more, ViuLive’s multi-view display can support up to six different screens simultaneously.

Seamless group live streaming

ViuLive offers numerous perks. The app’s multi-view display makes broadcasting a group breeze. The app allows groups to stream multiple live cameras feeds from different locations simultaneously on a single live stream.

Have you ever streamed competitive e-sport gameplay?

Let’s take Dota 2, for example — a game with complex mechanics, technical gameplay, on-the-fly decision-making, and a group of 5 players, each playing a different role in the team. Imagine these 5 players broadcasting their gameplay on ViuLive. Viewers can select and follow a player to match their preferred role-play style.
