How YOU Can Effectively Utilize Field Monitors

Once you nail the basic elements of your live streaming setup there are countless different upgrades that you can make. One of those being a field monitor. Which is a screen attached to your camera that enlarges your view when you are live streaming.

This simple tool allows your camera operators to have a better view of what they are shooting, which has proven to upgrade the quality of a live stream. 

If your camera operator is streaming for an extended period without a larger screen, it is likely that their eyes will start to fatigue. When you utilize a field monitor, your camera operator has a much bigger screen which helps to decrease eye strain. 

This isn’t the only purpose this piece of equipment can have in your live streaming setup. They can also be utilized as an announcer monitor. 

Announcers can also use the field monitor to talk about the graphics on screen, look at a replay, and know when they are back on air from a commercial break. 

This an amazing purchase that can take your live-streaming setup to another level without breaking the budget. Want shop Striv’s recommendation? We use the Lilliput 7″ HD Monitor.
