You will need

ChromeBox keyboard. Power switch is on top.

Panel remote control.

Camera remote control.

All are located in tray below panel.

Log in to the ChromeBox

You will log in to the ChromeBox connected to the panel on the back wall.

The ChromeBox is connected to HDMI1. 

You will begin your live stream using HDMI1. 

Once the live stream is running, you can change to HDMI3 to display meeting materials.

Chromebox account credentials
While you could log on to the chromebox with any Goshen Google account, the fastest way is to log in as...
Email: livestream@goshenlocalschools.org

Password: gofightwin

Click Chrome browser at the bottom of the screen.

Click the Youtube live stream link in the favorites bar.

Enter a title and a description (optional) for your live stream. The default settings are for a Board of Education meeting. Just replace these with your information if desired.

Click the NEXT button.

The important setting here is Live Chat. Turn live chat OFF unless you want people to be able to comment on your video.
 

Click the NEXT button.
There is nothing to change on this screen. Click the DONE button.
 

 

If you click GO LIVE now, you will immediately be streaming.

Read below if you would like to announce your stream on FaceBook before going live.

If you do not watch to announce, scroll down to How to control your live stream.

 

 

If you want to announce your stream on the GLSD FaceBook page, click the SHARE button.
 

Click Facebook.
The Chromebox has Mark's account saved, which gives you access to the GLSD Facebook page.

Use the box at the top left to change to "Share on a Page you Manage," then make sure the Goshen Local Schools Facebook page is selected.

When ready, click the Post to Facebook button at the bottom.

You will be returned to the YouTube Stream preview page. Click the GO LIVE button when you are ready.

You are now streaming live on YouTube and you have shared a link to your stream on the GLSD Facebook page.
 

How to control your live stream

You will use the camera system remote control to point the camera where you want it and zoom to the appropriate level.

 

Two things to note

  1. The ceiling-mounted microphones have a light ring which indicates if the mic is hot (listening) or not. A red ring means the mic is off, a white ring means the mic is hot. Control the mics using the red button on the remote.

  2. Sometimes the camera will be completely blurry when you start a live stream. Just hold the zoom button until it resolves, then proceed normally.

 

How to end your live stream

When you are ready to stop streaming, click the END STREAM button. 

 

YouTube will ask if you really mean it...
 

and you are done!
 

Click the DISMISS button.

Log out of the chromebox, then turn off the display panel using the remote.

Return the display remote, chromebox keyboard, and camera system remotes to the blue box beneath the display panel.

All done! If you want to see a list of previous live streams and/or find the link to the one you just created, click the link below.
