Choose A Setup

Now that you’ve measured and noted your range, imagine what view would be ideal for you. Write down the features that are most important to you (i.e., full color, night vision, HD, sound, etc.), then consider the constraints of your site using the questions below:

  • Are there any problems with accessing the site?
  • If you plan to broadcast online, is there wired Internet?
  • How much do you want to spend?

Once those questions are answered, it makes choosing equipment much more straightforward. Now let’s look at some options.
