Live event streaming is available in:
BMC 1.202 Flemming Lecture Hall
BMC 2.106 Auditorium
BMC 5.208 Briefing Room
CMB 4.130 Production Control Room
CMA 5.136 Lady Bird Johnson Room
All of the streaming (as of 2019) uses Black Magic Web Presenter.
The Web Presenter can be seen as a webcam and you can log in to any platform (YouTube, FaceBook, Twitch, Skype, etc) and begin streaming immediately.
If you need to stream to an event you will need to use OBS (Open Broadcast Software), copy the Stream Key from the platform you are using and paste it into the OBS interface.
