Setup your Camera for Union Broadcaster
Out of the box, your camera should be ready! However, we may want to adjust the resolution and this is usually dependent on your upload speed results. It is highly recommend you show at least 10Mbps as the upload speed for a high quality stream. Meaning, your resolution should be good with Union's default selection (1920x1080).
A high quality stream also includes making sure there are no sudden drops or buffering for your students. If your upload speed was below 10mbps, we recommend adjusting this a smidge. Tap Settings and then scroll to your Broadcast Settings, click Video.

Start Camera With
You can lock in some camera settings when you open up Broadcaster for a smoother start!
Since you own an iPhone, you hold a powerful camera. To ensure you're producing the highest quality, we strongly recommend using your back facing camera. If you are concerned about not seeing yourself when teaching, Union has a solution for that! When we enter the livestream test, you will have access to Union's Streamboard feature!
However, if you do need to use your front facing camera (selfie side), click Camera Position.
Back Camera Lens
By default, the Union Broadcaster app will have Auto selected. Some iPhone cameras have multiple lenses and the Union Broadcaster app can help tap into these features. You can choose Standard (Wide), Ultra Wide, or Telephoto. Click Back Camera Lens to change.
