Best Streaming Set Up 2022

Whether you are a streamer and/or gamer or you want to be a streamer, you are surely aware of the importance of having a good set up.

Image quality, lighting and sound are the three basic pillars to achieve quality streamings. If any of these elements fail, it will reflect on the quality of your content and the interaction with your audience. 

Everything is important when preparing a good Set Up for streaming, the chair, the table, the microphone, headphones, monitor, keyboard, mouse… Everything!

So here we are going to go through all the aspects you need to consider to get the best Set Up for streaming in 2022.

Best Streaming Set Up

What makes a good set up for streamers? 

Streaming PC

To broadcast with quality and with all the guarantees and to avoid any problems, the basic requirement is a PC with a powerful processor that offers the best performance.

You should then add a good graphics card unless you choose a processor with an integrated graphics card. There is a wide variety of these options on the market and it is something to consider, as it can be more cost-effective. 

RAM. With a RAM memory of 8gb DDR$ 2400 MHZ for example you would have enough.

And finally, a cooling system to lower the temperature of the equipment and prevent overheating.

Set Up Streaming Keyboard

Backlit Keyboard

Gaming keyboards are one of the most important elements of any streamer or gamer and are a key part of any streaming set up.

Within keyboards, mechanical keyboards have positioned themselves as a better option than membrane keyboards for several reasons: the key travel is more precise, they have a longer lifespan, the keystroke is more comfortable and they offer a significantly faster response speed.

Camera or Webcam

Image quality is non-negotiable and you can already find cameras and webcams on the market today that are exclusively designed for streaming. 

Image resolution, frame rates, different types of lenses and viewing angles are some of the features you should check to choose the right one.

Ideally, for streaming, a webcam that has the ability to produce a 1080p image or, at the very least, one that does it at 720p is ideal. 30 frames per second (FPS) is sufficient, but if you can get a 60 FPS one the look it gives is really something special. A 180-degree field of view would be enough.

Think carefully about this point because this peripheral is the most important and the quality of your content will depend to a large extent on it.

Microphone

A cheaper option would be to consider a camera with a built-in microphone, which may be useful at first, although the sound quality is inferior to any external microphone.

Just like image, sound is crucial. It’s no use creating the most interesting content if it doesn’t have good sound, it won’t reach the audience.

Condenser microphones are one of the most widely used by content creators as the sound quality is very high.

Dynamic microphones are best suited for outdoor live performances as they isolate ambient noise.

Ceramic or glass is the cheapest option but is very fragile.

USB mics are the mics of choice for most streamers or gamers as it allows voice recording which is a very interesting feature.

Wireless microphones are the most budget-intensive and, although they give more freedom, they have the problem of generating interference.

“Only by being original and authentic will you stand out”.

Transmission Software

Another important point is to decide which streaming software you will use to live stream and edit your videos. Here we explain the most important features of some of them:

Streamlabs

This software is one of the most complete for your live broadcasts on any of the streaming platforms. Its interface is very simple.

OBS Studio

Slightly older than Streamlabs but an excellent programme, although somewhat more complex than Streamlabs.

Nvidia Shadowplay

If you have an Nvidia graphics card this is the program for you. Perfect for gamers and eSports as it does not use CPU resources in terms of performance. 

Xsplit Gamecaster

Another perfect and super complete programme for gamers, although you have to take into account that its free version is somewhat limited.

Wirecast

This programme is the most budget-intensive as it is not cheap but offers impressive qualities and functionalities.

Facebook Gaming

Facebook programme for broadcasting and sharing your live shows. Very oriented to gamers as well.

The best option for streamers and gamers who are just starting out. It is popular and accepted by the public.

Tik Tok

The best platform for sharing short, vertical videos.

Illuminated Streaming Room

Streaming Lighting

Lighting is a factor that provides differentiation and allows you to play with sensations, colours, intensity and add lighting effects to give your streamings that “extra” needed to succeed.
