- using multiple cameras in livestream, (document camera, tablet, phone camera, webcam, etc)
-switching between predefined scenes

Putting all together to add talent in front of content: (like the weatherman in front of an interactive map):
-adding a chromakey filter to a camera
creating multiple scenes
creating a virtual camera in OBS to use in most any videoteleconference
-Conclusion and Recommendations for: (5 minutes)
Required technology: This workshop is designed for users that have a basic comfort level with Zoom and/or other videoteleconference/video streaming apps. To get the maximum benefit, participants should download and install the latest version of Open Broadcaster Studio (OBS) , https://obsproject.com, to a MAC or PC prior to the workshop. Another level of benefit can be achieved if participants are video streaming in front of any wall/sheet/board of (nearly) solid color (AKA “green screen”) in the background.
