At the minute we’re all in lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Because of this, all 3 of us are confined to home, so I decided to use this time to perfect our live streaming capabilities. Given I had the office to myself, I had plenty of room to set it all up. Using 2 of our cameras, our H6 Zoom, and a whole lot of wires, I managed to get a pretty decent stream lasting for four and a half hours. Pretty useful if Max or Mark wanted to check in to make sure I was actually working. Thankfully we invested in some camera batteries we could connect to a plug socket, so the need to keep swapping and charging batteries wasn’t an issue, and again, being the only one in the office, I had all the internet power for myself, so no dip in stream quality thankfully. The next step would be getting down to a more refined process, so we don’t need so many wires, but given this works fine, keep an eye out for Modus Live streams in the future!
Our Turner Prize Live Stream was a success!
