Step 1: Choose Your Video Camera

The first step is to choose the video camera you want to use with Switcher Studio. You can use any camera that has an HDMI output, including DSLRs, camcorders, and even your smartphone. Make sure your camera is set up and ready to go before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Connect Your Camera to Your Switcher Studio

Once your camera is connected, you’ll need to configure its settings so that it works properly with Switcher Studio. The exact settings you’ll need will depend on your specific camera model, but some common settings include:

  • Setting the output resolution and frame rate
  • Disabling any overlays or graphics
  • Setting a manual white balance

Refer to your camera’s manual for instructions on how to adjust these settings.


If you’re not sure which settings to use, try starting with 1080p at 30fps and adjusting from there.

Step 4: Add Your Camera to Your Switcher Studio Project

The final step is to add your camera to your Switcher Studio project. Open the Switcher Studio app on your iOS device and create a new project or open an existing one.

Tap the “+” button in the bottom left corner of the screen and select “Camera” from the list of sources. Choose the HDMI input that corresponds to your camera and give it a name.
