Panasonic is rumored to be announcing a new full-frame mirrorless camera at CES. The Panasonic Lumix S5 Mark II is a mirrorless DSLR camera with a full-frame sensor. The Panasonic GH6 is also likely to be announced as a new flagship Micro Four Thirds camera.

The GH6 can produce a staggering 120 frames per second in 4K. Can someone say 4K in slow motion? Full-HD rates for video are supported at up to 300fps (12.5x) slow motion. With the updated 25MP sensor and the ability to capture bitrates super high bitrates, this is the camera you can use to capture B-Roll that will make your videos and live streams incredible.

The Managed M4250 network switches are a dream come true for live streaming professionals setting up video production systems that work over IP. Today a network switch is the central hub of IP-based video production systems and the Netgear M4250 switches offer profiles designed specifically for NDI and DANTE. That’s right you can use a single NETGEAR switch to run NDI and DANTE properly with the correct configuration. Not to mention that the M4250 NETGEAR switches offer Power Over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity to power all of your PoE devices including PTZ cameras, NDI decoders, and other network-connected video production gear. The NETGEAR M4250 network switches are an ideal addition to any NDI camera deployment.
The latest camera from Logitech is a professional webcam called the Brio 505. It’s a plug-and-play USB-connected webcam with 1080p capabilities. The camera features a new show mode that looks ideal for live-streaming applications because it allows you to tilt the camera down to show sketches and work on a tabletop. Logitech is also showing off the StreamCam at CES this year which also costs roughly $129. The StreamCam features a simple rotation that can switch from widescreen mode (16:9) and portrait mode (9:16). As more content is made for vertical video applications, the StreamCam is ideal for live streaming. The StreamCam also features an impressive 60 frames per second. Logitech now offers lighting solutions for creators as well with the introduction of the Litra Glow. This light looks very similar to the light included with the PTZOptics Studio Pro which is next on our list.
