Session 3

Watch the session 3 video here:


There’s a bunch of software and gear mentioned in this week’s session, so here’s a list:


Continuity Camera: Use iPhone as a webcam for Mac

NDI Tools

Touch Portal – This is a phone based alternative to the Stream Deck that I forgot to mention in the video. It’s not as easy to use, but it’s still a handy tool if you don’t want to buy a Stream Deck.



Stream Deck – There are a bunch of different models but here is one of them. You can usually find them cheaper than the MSRP here.
