Benefits of the Yolobox Pro
Due to the Yolobox Pros range of features and its portability you are able to live stream in a wide range of different settings. Below are some examples:
Sporting Events/Athletics Carnivals
One of the great features that the Yolobox Pro comes with is a built in scoreboard. This is the perfect tool for sporting events as you have full customisation of the colours and text for different teams.
The Yolobox Pro has 3 HDMI input ports allowing you to capture 3 different cameras at the same time. This makes presentations and demonstrations easier as you can setup an overhead camera a front facing camera and even a third camera angle if you like. Currently you need a HDMI to USB adapter to connect the Yolobox Pro to your computer however USB webcam out will be added in a future update.
The Yolobox Pro comes with a built in audio mixer which allows you to set audio input device volume levels as well as toggle mute them. This is great for music performances as you can easily swap between the mc and music performers as well as control their audio levels.
As previously mentioned the Yolobox Pro has multiple HDMI inputs allowing you to capture 3 different cameras at the same time. This is a great feature for assemblies and even graduations as it allows you to record different camera angles. For example at an assembly you could have one camera facing the speaker and the other recording the crowd or at a graduation you could have one camera facing the speaker, one camera facing the student as they get called upon and one wide angle capturing all the students in frame.
In conclusion the Yolobox Pro is a simple to set up portable streaming solution with a wide range of features perfect for education, and with future updates more features will be added to the product giving you more tools to improve your live streams.
