Whether you’re live streaming, vlogging, producing music, gaming or podcasting, having the right gear can make a big difference to the quality of your content. JB has a huge range of content creation equipment to help you get the best result possible, from beginners, through to enthusiasts and professionals.
Capturing your game and streaming it on your favourite platform is pretty simple with a few key pieces of equipment. You’ll be ready in no time for your audience on Twitch, YouTube or Facebook.
If you’re setting up a livestream cam here are a few simple tips that can make your content look a little more pro.
Choose the right camera - The best camera for streaming can simply be the one on your phone, tablet or laptop, but if you want to up the ante then spend a little more and buy a webcam.
Game capture cards are perfect for recording or streaming from your PC or gaming console. You can buy game capture devices at JB, and all you need to do is either connect them to your device via USB or install them inside your hard drive if you have a desktop PC. A few things to look out for when buying game capture devices include:
Power - Get one that can handle what you’re doing with your camera, mic, and the game.
Quality resolution - 4K HDR is a great option.
No delay - Buy a capture card that has low latency
Stream - Choose a capture card that links to the right streaming platforms.
The great thing about podcasts is how easy they are to create. All you need is a good idea, some cool content, and a little bit of podcast equipment.
The built-in ones on your phone or device won’t be up to the task. A condenser microphone will pick up everything in a room, and dynamic podcast microphones will be more directional. A USB microphone or an XLR microphone are the two best options.
Recording software will allow you to edit your takes and mix your sounds effects.
Vlogging, or video blogging, is huge. And that’s not really a surprise, given people love seeing what others do and hearing what they think. Vlogging is also so popular because it’s really easy to do, and at JB we have a heap of great value vlogger gear to help you get started.
A travel vlog means you’re usually always on the road, and filming in conditions that don’t always give you high quality conditions. So, think of grabbing some extra gear to help you get the best quality outcome.
High quality vlogging cameras or streaming cameras can go a long way to helping you produce high quality content. There’s a heap of different options, from vlogging cameras for beginners all the way up to professionals.
The great thing about music production and DJ equipment is there’s no right answer to how much you can have. Here’s some gear you should consider, based on what type of music you’re into and what gear you want to own for yourself:
You’ll also need some editing software, and some hard drives to store it all.
A directional microphone is best for picking up a specific noise or instrument. If you want something that will capture noise from a wider area, a condenser microphone could be the perfect choice. And get a pop filter so you can stop peaks from ruining your vocals or sound.
