  • Angle the camera as shown in the first photo, then press the camera down flat, engaging the tripod lock

  • You can utilize the wing adjustment on the left side of the camera bracket to adjust tilt up and down

STEP 14

Last two cables coming from the bottom right side of the Studio in a Box case are the HDMI for the USB converter and the main power cable. Go ahead and plug the power cable into the nearest outlet.

There is more length of cable tucked in the bottom of the case and can be fed through the side port if more length is needed.

STEP 15

HDMI to USB Converter:

This is how you will get the signal, video and audio, from the camera into your computer. First plug in the HDMI cable into the converter, then plug the converter into a USB port on your computer.

STEP 16

You are connected and ready to go! You can select your new camera and mic from your desired streaming application.
