When planning a live show from outside my studio, it’s important to anticipate the challenges I may face in the field and pack accordingly.

High-quality live streaming from Down Under: The Dutch production company Stream My Event took LiveU Solo on a one-of-a-kind road trip through Australia.

This is the true story, of people playing games on Twitch, & sharing it all live.
When writing this article, I was reminded of the first time I heard the MTV Real World title sequence. That show ushered in the wave unscripted reality television that was recorded and edited for our viewing pleasure. But In Real Life (or IRL) takes this unscripted approach to the next level - with live streaming. These content creators are live streaming their daily lives and adventures for global audiences, any time, from anywhere. Many of these streamers were born out of Twitch, originally creating channels focused on video and tabletop gaming. But when Pokémon GO exploded in 2016 and players like aDrive, started to implement outdoor live streaming to engage with fans as they go on the hunt, the IRL streaming movement was born.
Forge-X, the community building arm of production company Cineforge Media located in Phoenix, AZ, reached out to me with one goal in mind – to live stream the launch of their new interview show “Forged” at this year’s GAME ON EXPO in Phoenix, AZ. With a prohibitive price tag on internet access through the venue, Forge-X wanted to explore other live streaming solutions and develop a strategy for distribution that would make the launch successful. They called me.
Tabletop gaming - especially Role Playing Games - is experiencing a serious resurgence - and more and more people want to share their games with players and audiences around the world by live streaming. As a child of the 80’s, playing Dungeons and Dragons around my kitchen table, I lived for the adventures, challenges, battles, and camaraderie with my fellow PCs (that's Player Characters for the uninitiated).
