🛋️Setting up your space for a Live Room (Old)

General Tips

We're so excited for you to go live!

Store, studio, pop-up shop, home, or anywhere.

We give sellers and brands the creative freedom to set any stage for their livestreams... as long as it's legal 😅 (our lawyers wanted us to put this in writing).

But with that, we'd like to share some tips on what we think good livestreams have in common:

  • Keep your stream setup simple. We'll provide more tips on setting up a good space below but always keep it as simple as possible!

  • Check your Internet speed

  • Be mindful of the noises and the traffic in the area

  • Make sure that the lighting is consistent and that the subject is easy to see

  • Use a good-quality camera: livestreams don't require Hollywood-level cameras, but make sure that the quality of the camera is clean

  • Make your space fun! Cool spaces, backgrounds, and decorations can help make the stream more interesting and be used as conversation-starters for you and your viewers

  • Keep your battery charged. Make sure that you have a nearby plug to keep your equipment charged throughout the Live Room

If you're happy with this for your livestream, then great! But if you would like to enhance the appearance of the livestream, here is our guide on setting up your space for a Live Room.

General Set Up

We recommend having:

  • Phone Stand

  • Long Phone Cable

  • Keylight

    • The purpose of the key light is to highlight the main subject of the video

  • Softbox Light

    • Soft source of light that minimizes harsh shadows

  • Background Light

    • Background light are similar to Softbox Lights as they help to reduce the shadows behind the subject of the Live Room; but Background Light can provide an additional effect such as colours
