Add a Profile in OBS

Union highly recommends that if you are streaming in different spaces or rooms, that there is a dedicated device per room. For example, let's say you have a location that has (2) different rooms. Each room would have the complete OBS setup. This keeps your streaming setup locked to each room which will allow a smooth and seamless streaming management system for you and your team.
