📄️ Software Encoders
For best performance and easiest setup, we recommend you stream using LBS (our customised version of the industry-standard streaming software OBS). Setup guides for LBS can be found here.
📄️ Hardware Encoders
Hardware encoders provide a compact and portable streaming solution and can be especially useful on film sets. Using a hardware encoder means that you can stream to your room without a computer.
📄️ USB Capture Devices
A USB capture device receives an HDMI or SDI signal and presents it to your computer as a USB video source which can be used by a wide variety of applications, much like a webcam.
With some settings adjustments, OBS can be used to stream via RTMP or SRT to your Louper room. OBS can be downloaded for macOS, Windows and Linux at https://obsproject.com/.
