Host a Live Event from Your Computer with Microsoft Azure

It takes me less than 30 minutes to go through the process of setting up an environment to host a live event, though I didn’t actually host one. How to get started? Here is a short list of things you will need:

  • A computer with an integrated camera or USB-based camera, plus Internet connection
  • Software that encodes your live stream (e.g. Telestream)
  • Microsoft Azure Media Services

You can find detailed step by step instructions from Jason Suess’s blog post and technical detail from Cenk Dingiloglu’s blog post.
