If you’re looking to get started with Livestreaming, or level up your game, Mashable has some nice lists to check out

My staff has been livestreaming for years now. They’ve done everything from ball games and pep assemblies to the campus coffeehouse and road conditions during bad weather.

During that time, they’ve slowly worked to level up the gear they are using. It started with simply using web cams on laptops we had and has progressed into a little larger setup that gives them a few more options.

If you and your staff are looking to get into livestreaming, Mashable has recently posted a nice piece on The Ultimate Guide to the Best Livestreaming Gear of the Year and I think you’ll find some nice options there, depending on what you’re wanting to do.

In addition, they also link to four other pieces you might find helpful:

  1. Here’s a Starter Guide if that’s more what you’re looking for: Here’s the gear you need to start livestreaming on Twitch and YouTube
  2. Here’s a Guide to some podcasting items worth checking out: A beginner’s guide to podcasting: What apps and software do I need?
  3. And finally, here’s one on making your livestream video better: How to reduce lag while livestreaming video
