To go live, you need the following:

  • Desktop computer or laptop

  • The latest version of Chrome or Safari browser

  • Web camera

  • Stable internet connection to avoid lags and delays. We recommend using a hard-wired connection (ethernet).

  • A pair of headphones to avoid echo and feedback
