Speaker: Charles Butler

Topic: Livestreaming Tools

Its a common misconception that Linux is not robust enough to be a full fledged media editing machine. I've spent quite a while sifting through the tools and putting together an amateur studio. I'll be sharing my insight into the software, hardware, and services that will expedite your endeavours to be a content creator on the Linux Desktop.

We will be covering audio production, distribution, and the hardware to get you started with your own in-house audio workshop. We will also briefly touch the subject of Video content production, and distribution mediums as well.
