Satine Phoenix and Ruty Rutenberg make up Maze Arcana, one of the fastest growing brands in the RPG social media world. Part of what has fueled that growth is the quality of their live streams, which are acquired with Blackmagic Design cameras and switchers.

Maze Arcana recently delivered a multicamera, professionally switched live video capturing the excitement of Dungeons & Dragons from Gen Con, an annual gaming convention that's huge for D&D fans. Maze Arcana gathered famous players and streamed their gameplay live to Twitch and YouTube, capturing every roll of the dice and triumphant howl of victory.

The production setup included an ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K switcher, two Studio Camera 4Ks and an URSA Mini 4.6K EF camera. The ATEM, which handled switching of the three cameras and inputting of graphics, sent the feed to OBS Studio for streaming.

"Blackmagic has dramatically changed the way live steaming is done. I never dreamed we would have studio-quality video in my living room, but here we are," says Phoenix.

"We've tried other ways to make the stream work, but even the simplest of webcam setups came with its own host of problems in connectivity, dropped signal and audio dysfunction. I feel incredibly fortunate that BMD has all this figured out for us in advance. I wouldn't have fathomed professional equipment would have such a plug-and-play workflow, and on a shoestring," adds Rutenberg.
