Stream Deck XL takes my stream to the next level with scenes, music control, and chaining multiple actions together. No more fumbling with a mouse during my stream!
I love the HD60 S because it's an all-around amazing capture card with absolutely no input delay. It's reasonably priced, easy to get online and at retail stores, and it's very reliable. I have owned two of these cards and never had a single issue. They work as well as the day I bought them!
What advice would you give to first time creators?
After 5 years of streaming I have seen hundreds of people try, fail, and succeed. An incredible amount of work goes into videos and streams. It is easy to see successful Youtubers post a 15 minute video/vlog and forget how much filming, planning, editing, etc. went into it behind the scenes. Oftentimes it is the work of multiple people too! I work five times harder now than in my previous office jobs — it's not for the faint of heart but can be incredibly rewarding!
What is so special about being an Elgato Partner?
Elgato has enabled me to stream from day one when I first started in 2016. Every Elgato product has been a big upgrade to my setup and my capabilities. The Cam Link was there when I upgraded from webcam to a camera; the Stream Deck was there when I started making complex scenes; and the capture cards allowed me to stream tournaments with different devices for camera angles.
