We’re total nerds when it comes to trying out software and by far 2016 was the year of OBS Studio! If you’re dipping your toe into Livestreaming, OBS Studio is the first encoding software you’ll likely try out! Check out our FB LIVE SHOW and see OBS Studio in action. It’s what allows us to stream into a FB Page, Profile, or Group (and Youtube, our website, etc.) from a desktop computer. We can add a Skype or Zoom interview, windows, slides, music and all sorts of added inputs to make a plain video branded and with more value. It’s free, and we {heart} it! Your next step up from here is Wirecast.

We would be hard pressed to find a protective case that is more durable than the Otterbox. If you like the idea of having a “suit of armor” for your device, then Otterbox is for you.  We love these cases because there is tremendous comfort in knowing that even when life gets tough, your electronic devices will be safe.  Can you tell we have kids?

The one question everyone asks when we’re doing a Facebook Live show or program is, “What camera are you using?” or “How did you do that?” … If you’ve moved from going LIVE via mobile to your computer or laptop, it may be time to invest in a better cameral. (Note — sometimes adding a better camera, one that is not built-in, makes syncing audio and video tougher. So, always test before you go live with new “tools” and equipment. For cameras, we recommend your first step into an HD webcam — a LOGITECH. The 920 or 930 are good choices!

We want to feel our music, and these are some of the best headphones, earphones and speakers on the market today. It’s definitely all about the bass and precision sound when we are rocking out to our favorite tunes. And, while we may not be like LeBron James, we love the features of the powerbeats2 wireless earphones. Beats by Dr. Dre are a part of Apple, and we are fans of that, too!

We are simply wild about Belkin products. Our current favorite is the WeMo® Switch. It’s wi-fi enabled and lets you turn electric devices on or off from anywhere. If you can plug it in, you can control it from your smart device using Wi-Fi. When working from home, Laurie uses this cool gadget to light up her office door (from her smartphone) signaling to the world when she’s on a call. Can you relate?
