Live stream internet strength - Beach wedding
« on: July 29, 2020, 05:01:25 pm »

One of my clients want me to provide live feed of the wedding ceremony they are going to have on the beach.
I would like to use my 5d mark iv to record and provide the feed into OBS Studio software. I am planning to use my mobile internet on my phone. I would like to set up my phone as hot spot and connect my notebook to my phone.

- My question is how to make sure I have strong internet to support the upstream data??? I don't have mobile wifi?  The location is 2 hours away from my home. I can go and test the speed but I would rather not to.
What do you do when you live stream an event? How do you make sure you have a strong signal?

Have you already checked with your telecom provider? Some provide maps showing their connectivity rates (at least here in Austria).

I did! They show strong signal which is not 100% accurate. It shows strong signal for my house and in fact signal is kind of ok....

You'll burn a lot of mobile data - you may want to upgrade to an unlimited hotspot plan.  Android or iPhone? Mac or PC?

Are you looking at doing a Youtube live, Facebook live or some sort of Zoom/Teams/etc so the remote folks can interact?

You may need to record internally at 4K, while streaming 1080p.
