Gear Guide: Level 2

Level 2 is streaming LIVE from the computer, using BROWSER based software. 

This is a very easy way to start streaming, but won’t give you the best quality. You can improve your quality using the gear below! Best to keep it SIMPLE on Level 2!

CAMERAS

LOGITECH C-920

$49.99

The least expensive webcam option, but still great quality! It’s HD video at 1080p and has dual built-in mics (though we recommend using a separate microphone!)

LOGITECH C-922 (RECOMMENDED)

$70.00

This is about the same as the C-920, only giving you the ability to stream at 60fps. If you’re not sure what that is, get the C-920.

LOGITECH BRIO 4K

$179.00

This is the most expensive of the Logitech Webcams. It is also 4K. Has much better dynamic range than the other two, but at a higher cost.

Be sure to download Webcam Settings Software to get fine tuned adjustments to the quality of your video! Available on a Mac or PC

MICROPHONES

BLUE YETI NANO

$69.00

This is the sibling to the BLUE YETI, which is also a great mic. This is more portable, and has a few less options. It also comes in many different colors to match your set/branding.

AUDIO-TECHNICA ATR2100

$63

This has USB and XLR connections for flexibility depending on your setup. You’ll need a boom holder or stand to hold this.

SAMSON G-TRACK PRO (BEST CHOICE)

$129.00

This is David’s favorite Mic. The build quality is amazing, and the audio you get from it is great. It has tons of options as well.
