Best Practices – Equipment

Equipment recommendations for remote live streaming 


Logitech C920/C920S

Best overall choice for any usage case with a very good image quality at a very decent price. Supports 1080p resolution, auto-focus and comes with a glass lens.

Logitech C930e

Excellent image quality and the improved model of the G920/G920S while being designed more towards business use. 

Logitech Brio 4K

Probably the best image quality of the bunch with 4K resolution and HDR support.

Razer Kiyo

Excellent quality webcam that includes a built-in ring light. 


If you’re attending a video conference or a meeting, a headset with a microphone is a good option. We do not recommend using the built-in microphone on your laptop or webcam. Even if you prefer a separate microphone, we recommend using a headset for better audio quality.

Logitech – H800 Wireless Headset

Good quality wireless headset with a microphone. Connectable by either Bluetooth or USB (wireless receiver).

Jabra Evolve 40

Excellent audio and microphone quality, designed for video conferencing. Wired connection with 3.5mm plug or USB.


Like laptops, most webcams come with a built-in microphone, but the audio quality is often not great. Here are a few recommendations for us that give good quality audio.

Blue Yeti USB Microphone

You can’t go wrong with the Blue Yeti. Widely considered the best USB microphone in the market. Great sound quality. Plug ‘n play with PC and Mac systems.

Shure MV5

Excellent microphone that is not only directly compatible with PC and Mac, but with iOS devices as well. Comes with both USB and Lightning cables.

Audio Interfaces (for performers)

For performers we recommend a good quality audio interface for best possible audio quality.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

Very good quality audio interface with 2 inputs. Scarlett offers a wide range of audio interfaces.

Presonus AudioBox USB 96

Another very good quality affordable audio interface with 2 inputs. 


Good lighting is essential in order to get good quality webcam video. Make sure to have a light source in front of you, not behind you. We recommend getting an LED panel for the best results. One interesting option is this ring light you can attach on your laptop/monitor QIAYA Selfie Light Ring.
