How to stream a curling team's video and audio?

What equipment and software would I need to stream a curling team over the internet.  Streaming could be through Facebook or some other way. Each of 4 players would need a wireless mic and of course we'd need a video camera to record them playing. What else would be needed to make this work, and how would I set up the streaming?

Thank you.

You could use OpenBroadcaster and any of the streaming sources it supports. You would need some form of mixing board or another system to get them all into the PC and use OBS to stream and mix the inputs of audio/video. As far as setting up the streaming that is a much longer topic and depends on the service you use. YouTube streaming is fairly simple as the application integrates directly.

A camera with HDMI pass through is a good start. Then you need something that can capture that into the PC. Each wireless mic will need to go to an audio capture device that has multiple channels such as a Focusrite Clarett 4Pre or other device that has the mic inputs. In OBS at a high level you create "scene" that has the inputs you want and then you just hit stream.

Sounds like the equivalent of video game streaming. You can see on that basically with a single camera and a headset, a gamer is able to stream their desktop, video of themselves and their microphone audio, to a large audience. Twitch provides the software/broadcast, the gamer just provides a camera and a microphone.

So in theory you'd need a computer with an internet connection, a camera (aimed at the action) and each player with a wireless mic routed to the computer. I'm guessing you'd need fairly high quality (range-wise) wireless microphones if the team is located far from the receiver.

For software, you could use Youtube's Live streaming service:

Nobody is on the ice right now, so I don't know if they have everyone mic'd up.
