In an increasingly minute-to-minute news cycle, live video can engage viewers with important context and information in real-time. DSLR dongles enable journalists to stream video directly from professional cameras to YouTube, Facebook and other live platforms.
✓ Pro: The biggest benefit to the dongles was utilizing existing resources such as audio mixers, lavaliers and other microphones to stream with high-quality audio from a variety of sources.
✗ Con: Dongles were less suitable for on-the-go reporting than mobile video kits, which stream directly from a phone camera with custom mobile lavaliers and lenses.
