Wirecast 12 also includes Stinger Transitions — brief motion graphics or animations you can insert between shots. And Facebook Live polls — setup them up easily in Wirecast and they appear on screen for Facebook viewers to click and vote.

Sennheiser e835 Mic Review

Sennheiser e835 Microphone Review (Update Ep124)

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update. Today we look at another strong candidate for best microphone under $100.

The Sennheiser e835 is dynamic, cardioid vocal microphone that is designed for on-stage use. That means it will reject noise from other speakers or band members in live or recording environments. For hosting a remote livestream or podcast, or conducting interviews at events, the e835 enables the speaker to cut through the background noise.

At $99, the e835 is also a good option as a primary host or guest mic for anyone looking for an affordable solution. While the Shure SM7B remains my studio broadcast mic of choice, I will be taking the e835 with me to events and other broadcasting environments outside the studio. It’s a durable mic that sounds good right of the box on many voices, making the Sennheiser e835 an excellent microphone for remote livestreams, mobile podcasts and on-stage speaking engagements.
