As always, we strongly encourage you to always use backup streams.

This piece, focused on how to broadcast live content through a multi-camera live webcast, is contributed by Gregg Hall.

They want to put an LCD display on the wall, point a camera at the bands, and have it display on the TV so that diners can watch.

What is the best way to do this without dedicating an entire computer? I presume you are using a USB webcam, so that won't work, you need a camera with a video output not USB, otherwise you'll need some sort of device (computer/tablet) to convert from USB to video (HDMI, composite etc).
