Walkthrough of Michael Hyatt’s new Level 4 TV-quality studio

Luria Petrucci 07.13.2017 0 comments


Let’s go on a tour of a professional live streaming studio that produces TV-quality video!

One part of our business is installing TV-quality Level 4 studios in people’s homes and businesses. We just did one of these for Michael Hyatt and we want to show you what goes into a studio like this, and what it can do.

You can get a refresher on the 4 Levels of LIVE Streaming™ here.

This was in a bedroom, in a house, and there were hardwood floors. While they’re beautiful, hardwood floors create huge issues with echoes. Our solution for that was to cover them with sound absorbent matts, like we use in our own studio. We also used moving blankets to absorb sound on the walls (a much cheaper and fully functional alternative to sound-deadening foam). Another of Michael’s requests was that everything be off the floor, because he hates clutter. We achieved that with trussing which provides a framework where we can run cables and hang cameras, lights, and microphones. Everything is off the floor!

Michael also wanted a whiteboard UpDesk, which gives you an always-there place to take notes while you’re LIVE.

Check out the video for all the details, and a look at how all the parts came together!

  1. Luria, enjoyed your podcast interview with JLD today and was so nice to re discover you and it makes total sense that you’re doing livestream…thanks for the great information here…I’m a level 2/3 livestreamer and looking to get to level 4…

  2. What a fantastic buildout and thank you so much for walking us through it. Can you share anything on the dimensions of this space and/or of the dimensions you’d suggest as a minimum for something like this? Thanks!

  3. This was very helpful. Thank you for sharing! Is the background for Michael’s videos just the green/gray wall behind the desk? Do you have a link to the rest of the video with the Q&A portion? And are there any example videos of Michael using the new setup yet? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks so much! 🙂

  4. Hi Luria, you said that Vimeo was the hosting provider used for this video
    (https://livestreamingpros.com/walkthrough-of-michael-hyatts-new-level-4-tv-quality-studio/) which allows for the possibility of a 2x playback speed. Which level of Vimeo hosting are you using? On their various plans (https://goo.gl/oD8KKT), there is no explicit mention of a 2x playback speed for any of the plans. I would think they would want to feature that prominently. How would one configure the playback settings within Vimeo to enable this 2x playback speed? Thanks for your assistance in answering my questions!

    • For Michael’s? He uses a printed backdrop they created from a photo specifically taken for this purpose.

  5. Hello Luria,
    I do not mean the backdrop, but the color of the back wall for keying. Usually you use blue or green color for the key. In your video for the studio, the wall looks gray. Now I would be interested in what system you can use to clean the key and what color it is.

    • That’s what I was saying – he’s not keying out the color in this studio.

      So to do that, you do want to use green or blue and can use any Level 3 or 4 LIVE streaming system like xMix, Wirecast, Livestream Studio, etc. The only thing is – if you’ve never done it before, I’d highly suggest you really look at how to do it well. If not lit properly you can wind up with very bad looking video! 🙂
